"A powerful, well-written book deserving wide readership."—Library Journal

"A provocative and carefully researched account of the successful legal and political attack on the International Workers Order by the State of New York in 1951."—Labor History

"Sabin has provided a useful reminder of that shameful period in American constitutional and legal history when wholly irrational concerns for internal security drove all three branches of government to substitute the rule of fright for the rule of law. There can never be too many reminders of that period because each reminder helps to insure that such a time will never come again."—Law and Politics Book Review
