Loaded with illustrations from movie posters, comics, educational pamphlets and daily newspapers a visual history of how the U.S. reacted to the "red threat". Examples such as Look magazine's 1948 piece "Could the Reds Seize Detroit?" where the authors examine how communist fifth columns, red agents and gangsters could combine to Sovietize the Motor City.
