“Adds valuable, new personal information to this ever-fascinating story. It will be of interest not merely to scholars of the case, but anyone who cares about history and getting it right.”
Victor Navasky, Publisher Emeritus of The Nation
“A most unusual book... sure to incense those historians and partisans wedded to the national narrative crafted by Whittaker Chambers and Richard Nixon. Insightful and provocative, Brady has reopened the Hiss case to a new generation of readers.”
