Written in the 1950s as a defense of the anti-communist movement, Buckley argued that just because you are paranoid it didn't mean that people are not out to get you. Yes, McCarthy may be a poor spokesman for this important issue, but infiltration by communist agents in the government was a real threat to the security of the nation. Buckley further argued that focusing on McCarthy's errors was a way for those who opposed anti-communism to distract the conversation from this real danger. ( )

When after preliminary research Brent Bozell and I decided, in 1952, to do a book that would get to the bottom of the McCarthy story, we know the going would be rough, but did not know just how rough. (An Introduction to the New Edition)
On the 31st of March, in 1949, Mr. Winston Churchill (he was then ungartered) was to address the Mid-Century Convocation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and he had advertised his forthcoming remarks as "not unimportant." (Chapter 1)
