Left Bank Books welcomes New York Times bestselling author Larry Tye, who will discuss his new book, “Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy,” on Facebook Live at 6pm CST on July 28. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of “Demagogue” from Left Bank Books. The definitive biography of the most dangerous demagogue in American history, based on first-ever review of his personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently unsealed transcripts of his closed-door Congressional hearings. In the long history of American demagogues, from Huey Long to Donald Trump, never has one man caused so much damage in such a short time as Senator Joseph McCarthy. From 1950 to 1954, McCarthy destroyed many careers and even entire lives, whipping the nation into a frenzy of paranoia, accusation, loyalty oaths, and terror. Only now, through bestselling author Larry Tye’s exclusive look at the senator’s records, can the full story be told.
