GENERATED MORE NEWSPAPER and media coverage and more angry debate
than any of the other early spy cases. It did so because the accused spy, Alger
Hiss, was a prominent member of the Washington foreign policy establishment

13. Allen Weinstein, Perjury: The Hiss-Chambers Case (New York, 1979), xvi.

the "partisan exhortation [that] has characterized almost every book written on the
