Soviet Espionage in America

Over at Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, I've been giving host Ed Darrell a hard time about his dewy-eyed recollections of Pete Seeger. Sorry, Ed -- although I'm dead serious.

That said, if you're interested in the history of Soviet espionage in the United States during the 1930s through the 1950s, two of the finest books on the subject are Sam Tanenhaus's biography of Whittaker Chambers and Allen Weinstein's The Haunted Wood: Soviet Espionage in America -- The Stalin Era. Both are extremely well-written, definitive and damning.
