A study of British and American anti-communist thought in the 50 years before the Cold War. It examines socialist, liberal and conservative varieties of anti-communism from the debates of the 1880s, up until the onset of the Cold War after Churchill's Iron Curtain speech in 1946. In doing so, it analyzes the writings and activities of a wide range of politically attached intellectuals, publicists and politicians.
