Professor emerita of American history at Yeshiva University, Ellen Schrecker is a leading authority on McCarthyism whose many books include Many Are the Crimes: McCarthyism in America and No Ivory Tower: McCarthyism in the Universities. Schrecker is the former editor of the American Association of University Professors magazine, Academe. She has been called "the dean of the anti-anti-Communist historians."
