Edgar Snow’s Red Star over China, together with other reports on red China and Chinese revolution, plus his red China experiences, has brought him much trouble during the McCarthy era. The unfair treatment or even persecution done to him comes from four major aspects: FBI, Congress, right-wing media and anti-communist ally, which form the chain against Edgar Snow, with FBI playing the leading role. It reveals for the first time the whole mechanism that functions in the unfair treatment of Snow on the basis of his works and Edgar Snow Papers.
