Product Description

In this highly original work, Susan Jacoby (The Age of American Unreason) turns her attention to the Hiss case, including his trial and imprisonment for perjury, as a mirror for shifting American political views and passions. Unfettered by political ax-grinding, Jacoby examines conflicting responses, from scholars and the media on both the left and the right, and the ways in which they have changed from 1948 to our present post-Cold War era, keeping in mind the continuum of the difficult balance between national security and respect for civil liberties. Notes, Index. Addenda. 272p.
