Summary
Drawing on dozens of interviews and on materials from forty archives in the United States and abroad -- including still-classified KGB dossiers -- Tanenhaus traces the remarkable journey that led Chambers from a sleepy Long Island village to center stage in America's greatest political trial and then, in his last years, to a unique role as the godfather of post-war conservatism
Summary
Featuring a full account of the Alger Hiss perjury case, a biography of Hiss' accuser traces Chambers' life from his years as a Soviet agent to his role in the postwar anti-Communist movement
