[solid copy, worn at extremities as is common with this cheaply-produced book, light water spotting at top of both covers (not serious and not affecting interior); jacket has some minor fading/soiling, but in better shape than often seen]. Blacklisted journalist/editor/novelist (and one-time film critic) Belfrage took advantage(?) of the three months he was parked in jail, awaiting his eventual deportation, to write this passionate memoir, in which not only expresses his admiration for America and Americans, but also "his detestation of that small group of Americans who seek to panic their countrymen into a denial of elementary democratic freedoms." In his time, of course, he was speaking of Senator McCarthy and his ilk, but his laments have a chillingly familiar ring in today's world as well.
