Carl Marzani

Carl Marzani was imprisoned in 1950 as one of the first victims of the gathering cloud of McCarthyism, his case a cause celebre. He would subsequently become one of New York's foremost left publishers and, as a writer and polemicist, a distinctive voice of the Cold War years. Right up until his death in 1994, he retained the sense of anger at injustice that burned throughout his intellectual and working life. A passionate belief in the value of democracy informs every page of this book.
