Publisher's Description:
"In this fascinating book, G. Edward White deftly draws together the countless details of Hiss's life to paint a provocative portrait of a man whose life was devoted to perpetuating a lie. White catalogs the evidence that proved Hiss's guilt, from Whittaker Chambers's famous testimony to Allen Weinstein's groundbreaking investigation in the 1970s. As he reviews that evidence, he offers a compelling analysis of how Hiss's behavior, as he confronted and sought to deflect additional information indicating that he had been a Soviet spy, conformed to an ongoing pattern of denial and duplicity in his life. Alger Hiss's Looking Glass Wars is both a recovery of the world of Cold War America and a story about individuals who choose to engage in espionage for foreign powers and the secret worlds they choose to conceal. In White's skilled hands, the life of Alger Hiss comes to illuminate both of those themes."
