AGE OF ANXIETY McCarthyism to Terrorism

by | Read by Kristoffer Tabori

History • 10.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Anxious could easily describe the narrator when approaching this thorough and heavy text, which draws parallels between McCarthyism and post-9/11 terror-mongering by government officials. But if Kristoffer Tabori was anxious at all, he certainly doesn't show it. Managing that elusive skill of turning facts into storytelling, Tabori breathes energy into a book that might otherwise leave listeners nodding off. Most of the material focuses on McCarthyism; the last quarter points to the current political stage. Though fascinating, such a historical account could be overwhelming without an engaging narrator like Tabori, who keeps a steady pace, delivers distinct quotations, and adjusts the emphasis of his words according to the demands of the book.
