    I don't know what your book says -- but here were my experiences:

    McCarthyism

    * ruined the careers of many fine actors and musicians who were banned because they were suspected of having Communist leanings

    * caused school systems (and other employers) to require signed loyalty oaths from their employees

    * wasted tax payers' money in witch hunts

    * raised suspeicion about many people -- including the president.
