Abstract

In The Broadcast 41: Women and the Anti-Communist Blacklist, Carol A. Stabile explores the 41 women working in US television and radio who were blacklisted during the 1950s ‘Red Scare’, showing how the removal of these progressives from the media continues to reverberate into the twenty-first century. This is a fascinating and well-researched study, finds Max Lewontin, that contributes to the ongoing effort to recover the voices of women, immigrants and people of colour in the history of broadcasting and challenge the amnesia surrounding the impact of the anti-communist blacklist.
