State of defiance :challenging the Johns Committee's assault on civil liberties

During the era of McCarthyism, the Floridian legislative investigative group known as the Johns Committee subpoenaed citizens under charges of communism, homosexuality, or subversive behavior. This book uses previously unpublished sources and the recently unsealed records of the Johns Committee to profile five individuals who challenged the assault on civil liberties.
