With a New Afterword by the Author
"An astonishing work concerning personal honor and dishonor, shame and shamelessness. A book of stunning insights and suspense." --Studs Terkel
Half a century later, the investigation of Hollywood radicals by the House Committee on Un-American Activities still haunts the public conscience. Naming Names, reissued here with a new afterword by the author, is the definitive account of the hearings, a National Book Award winner widely hailed as a classic. Victor S. Navasky adroitly dissects the motivations for the investigation and offers a poignant analysis of its consequences. Focusing on the movie-studio workers who avoided blacklists only by naming names at the hearings, he explores the terrifying dilemmas of those who informed and the tragedies of those who were informed on. Drawing on interviews with more than 150 people called to testify--among them Elia Kazan, Ring Lardner Jr., and Arthur Miller--"Naming Names" presents a compelling portrait of how the blacklists operated with such chilling efficiency.
