Seeing Reds: The Red Scare of 1918-1919, Canada’s First War on Terror by Daniel Francis (Arsenal Pulp Press). Canada’s greatest myth-buster has done it again, with this trenchant account of how, following World War I, immigrants to Canada suddenly found themselves branded “enemy aliens” and the focus of a nasty wave of anti-socialist paranoia. Put it on your shelf next to Francis’s classics, National Dreams and The Imaginary Indian.
