Giblin portrays McCarthy as a man of aggressive ambition, even opportunism, who latched on to anti-Communism as a platform on which he could rise in the public eye and consolidate an enormous amount of personal power over statesmen at the highest levels.

The revelations of Soviet spy networks in the United States, and the hearings of the House Un-American Activities Committee, may have generated big headlines in the late s, but they would pale compared to those that Joseph McCarthy would elicit. A freshman senator from Wisconsin, McCarthy shocked the country in when he claimed to possess evidence that significant numbers of communists continued to hold positions of influence in the State Department. For the next two years he and other Republicans would use these charges to hammer the Truman administration, and the "communists in government" theme accounts, at least in part, for the landslide victory enjoyed by the GOP in the election. Republican control of Congress in and gave McCarthy access to more power than ever, but increasingly he became a liability both to his party and to Dwight Eisenhower's administration.
