Tracing the evolution of anti-communism from the Bolshevik Revolution to the collapse of communism in recent years, this book challenges the basic understanding of the nature of anti-communism. It draws connections between anti-communism as an internal American control mechanism, and anti-communism as an instrument of foreign policy, relating these aspects in turn to a study of psychology, national mythology and culture. It further relates anti-communism to deep-rooted structures in Western Christianity, connecting, for example, the book of Revelation to nuclear arms policy; the inquisitions in Europe to McCarthyism; and archaic mythologies of the hunt to J. Edgar Hoover's anti-communist crusade.
