Summary
"Congressional Theatre is the first book to identify and examine the significant body of plays, films, and teleplays that responded to the actions of the House Committee on Un-American Activities during the "Show Business hearings" that it held between 1947 and 1960. Brenda Murphy discusses the dramatization in the works of HUAC's effects on American life and the political, social, and moral issues that its actions raised for American citizens."--BOOK JACKET
