When the Hiss-Chambers case first burst on the scene in 1948, its main characters and events seemed more appropriate to spy fiction than to American reality. The case has continued to make headlines and to attract considerable media attention in the decades since Perjury was first published in 1978. This new edition of the book incorporates evidence available only in the past several decades, including a number of previously undiscovered or unavailable records, bringing the Hiss-Chambers's amazing story up to the present. A new feature in this edition is a series of narrative profiles of six important figures in the case, including Richard Nixon, all of whose lives were changed by Hiss-Chambers. The case caused widespread political damage and much human suffering. Although nothing written at a distance of more than six decades can undo those effects, this analysis can help to explain the passion that the case still arouses.
