Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“We have Bentley to thank for this bittersweet vaudeville show, this congressional cabaret of the absurd, this peptic epic…What he has done is give us HUAC as spectacle, and the perspective is shattering.” New York Times
“[Portrays] a dark chapter in our nation’s history that needs to be remembered.” Library Journal
“The basic document with which all future studies of the [House Un-American Activities] Committee will have to begin.” Dalton Trumbo, screenwriter and novelist
