Publication Date

Andrew Feffer, professor of history, was a recent guest on WAMC, Northeast Public Radio’s program, “The Roundtable.”

He discussed his new book, “Bad Faith: Teachers, Liberalism, and the Origins of McCarthyism,” a look back at the Rapp-Coudert Committee. The committee held a series of private and public hearings in the 1940s in which hundreds of educators were interrogated, threatened and in many cases, fired, for their alleged Communist ties.
