What about the children!? Comic book edition.
A couple of weeks back CNN online posted an article taking a look at the comic book scare of the 1950, when some claimed comic books were corrupting our youth. A book, The Ten-Cent Plague: The Comic-Book Scare and How it Changed America by David Hadju, looks at this time of hysteria in American history and the Senate hearings it produced.
I recently purchased a copy and will be covering it down the road once I’m finished or if anything of interest pops up.
You can read about this part in American history at this Wikipedia article.
