Description
In 1948 former U.S. State Department official Alger Hiss, a participant at the Yalta Conference and the formation of the United Nations, was accused of having been a Soviet spy in the 1930s. Because the statute of limitations on espionage had expired, he was convicted only of perjury, and he maintained his innocence to the end of his life. Yet over the decades, says former U.S. Intelligence analyst Christina Shelton, evidence has continued to surface that Hiss had passed classified documents to the Soviets. Her case against Hiss explores both his ideological motivation and the lasting influence that his Soviet sympathies had on U.S. foreign policy.

"Rigorous and carefully documented analysis.... Shelton makes a sledgehammer of a case."National Review
