Some brief overview of book

In 1948, former U. S. State Department official Alger Hiss was accused of being a Soviet spy.

Because the statute of limitations on espionage had run out, he was convicted only of perjury. Decades laterafter the Hiss trial had been long forgotten by mostarchival evidence surfaced confirming the accusations a public servant with access to classified documents had indeed passed crucial information to the Soviets for more than a decade. Yet many on the American Left still consider Hiss an iconic figurean innocent victim accused of unsubstantiated crimes.

They prefer to focus on the collectivist ideals Hiss stood for, rather than confront the reality of a man who systematically and methodically betrayed his country. Former U. S.

Intelligence analyst Christina Shelton employs an in-depth knowledge of Soviet intelligence affairs as well as recently released Hungarian and KGB archival material to shine a fresh light on one of the most famous espionage cases. The story is dramatic, but Sheltons analysis goes beyond sensationalism as she explores both the ideological motivation behind Hisss behavior and the lasting influence it has had on U. S. foreign policy.

Why exactly were the intellectual elite so deter-mined that Hiss was innocent? His accuser, Time magazine senior editor Whittaker Chambersoriginally Hisss Soviet handlerpresented compelling written evidence. However, the intelligentsia were intent on supporting one of their own.

They ignored the facts, a willful blindness that helped contribute to a polarization still in place in our country today. Thirty years of intelligence analysis gives Shelton the expertise to approach the story from many different angles, especially Her persuasive argument that Communism and Fascism are not polar opposites, as has so long been claimed, but highly similar ideologies. How Hisss central role at the Yalta Conference and the founding of the United Nations are examples of the significance of Soviet intelligence recruitment of high-level Americans who could influence U.

S. foreign policy in their favor. Why the silence surrounding the implications of Hisss espionage continuesand why apologists fear that smearing his name would undercut New Deal policies and the United Nations. Shelton doesnt just detail the body of evidence pointing to Hisss guilt; she suggests new layers of meaning in light of the current political landscape.

Today, the importance of understanding Hisss ideological commitment has never been more vital. His advocacy of collectivism and internationalism still resonate among the political elite, making this book an important and timely analysis of American thought at this critical juncture in our countrys life.
