Neither Dead nor Red: Civilian Defense and American Political Development during the Early Cold War

Synopsis

From the 1940s on, the government worked to prepare the civilian population for the Cold War, despite the disturbing and ridiculous, implications of planning to fight and survive a nuclear war. Neither Dead Nor Red takes on this strange time in American history, arguing that this early Cold War homefront mobilization has had a long-term, negative effect on American society and politics.
