New book by Union professor Andrew Feffer recommended for summer reading

A new book by Andrew Feffer, professor of history, was recommended in a Times Union roundup of local authors to read for the summer.

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.

Feffer joined Union in 1989.
