Neither Dead Nor Red: Civil Defense and American Political Development During the Early Cold War



Neither Dead Nor Red: Civil Defense and American Political Development During the Early Cold War
Imagine a summer day in New York City in 1955. An air raid sirens wails, signaling a simulated nuclear attack and Time Square empties as New Yorkers file into subway tunnels and identifiable fallout shelters. Not a person or a moving vehicle remains in the street. It's nearly impossible to imagine now, but this and other Operation Alert drills were repeated through the fifties in cities and towns all across the United States. From Bomb shelters and air raid drills to the Cold War rhetoric that justified everything from the interstate highway system to CIA wiretaps, Neither Dead Nor Read provides a fascinating glimpse at life in Cold War America.
