Summary
For most of his 60-year career, the Reverend Carl McIntire was at the centre of controversy. The best known and most influential of the fundamentalist radio broadcasters and anticommunists of the Cold War era, his many enemies depicted him as a dangerous far rightist, a racist, or a 'McCarthyite' opportunist engaged in red-baiting for personal profit. Despised and hounded by liberals, revered by fundamentalists, and distrusted by the centre, he became a lightningrod in the early American culture wars. This biography peels off the accumulated layers of caricature and makes a case for restoring McIntire to his place as one of the most consequential religious leaders in the 20th-century United States
