Invasion of the Body Snatchers

How the novel \”Invasion of the Body Snatchers\” (by Jack Finney) parallels 1950s America. This paper needs to argue that the novel was a critique of McCarthyism and Communism. It needs to have examples of events that took place in the book that show how the pod people/invasion were a reference to communists and how Jack Finney was critiquing communists or at least how people at that time thought of them. Referencing how the storyline could very well parallel the Red Scare and the pervasive fear of communism in that time. It needs to include how the complacency shown by the pod people was a critique of communism.
