As many readers will have seen in the press before this issue appears, one of MR's editors, Leo Huberman, was called before the McCarthy committee (in executive session on July 7 and in public session on July 14) because several of his books had been found on the shelves of some of the State Department's overseas libraries. We print below, both for the record and for their intrinsic interest, (1) the statement which Huberman read before the committee and released to the press immediately after the session of July 14, and (2) the full transcript of his testimony on that date.
