xlix, 253p., first edition trade-size wraps, somewhat rubbed and edgeworn. As regards the title subject, McClay argues that American "sloganmakers" are promoting panic and delusions such as "the thought that an enormous segment of the American people are literally 'out of their minds' while the U.S.S.R. is pictured as a psychiatric heaven" (from p.13; similar to but not the same as L. Ron Hubbard's anticommunist antipsychiatry, she makes no LRH citations). McClay is educated, sophisticated, married to a research physicist, and within the bounds of conventional anticommunism, fairly original. Psychiatry-as-plot is just one of her themes: find a great deal of material on [for instance] Mark Zborowski, favorite bete noir of the right, who allegedly informed to the KGB in eastern Europe and to the CIA after he emigrated. [FYI, this cataloguer met Zborowski and wife in their home in San Francisco, it was 1987 and they were at the end of their lives and selling their elegant scholarly library; I thought at the time (not having heard the imputations then) that they were the gloomiest couple I had ever met, and their livingroom possibly the very darkest. End confession.] Foreword author Granville F. Knight googles as a nutritionist and "eminent leader of the John Birch Society in California.". N° de ref. de la librería 111650
