Bibliography of Academic Theses and Dissertations on the American Right

CRWS is pleased to make available Ernie's Lazar's extensive bibliography of academic theses and PhD dissertations on the American Right. Mr. Lazar has spent three decades collecting archival material on the right wing and is committed to making his work available to a wide audience of researchers. The list is organized thematically and some of its citations go back more than 50 years. To our knowledge, this is the most exhaustive directory of its kind available on line or elsewhere.

The Bibliography is organized around the following subject areas:

  • Anti-Communism / Red Scare / House Committee on Un-American Activities / Subversion / Internal Security / FBI / COINTELPRO
  • Anti-Evolution / Creationism
