This highly acclaimed book-hailed as the definitive account of the Julius and Ethel Rosenberg case-now includes a new introduction that discusses the most recent evidence. It provides information from the Khrushchev and Molotov memoirs, the Venona papers, and material contained in a Discovery Channel documentary that was first aired in March 1997.

Editorial Reviews

Alan M. Dershowitz
Were Julius and Ethel Rosenberg guilty of transmitting American atomic secrets to the Soviet Union in the 1940s, or were they scapegoats of the Cold War whose execution was a grave miscarriage of justice? That both are true is the intriguing argument of Ronald Radosh and Joyce Milton in their definitive account of the controversial case.
—(Alan M. Dershowitz New York Times Book Review
Max Lerner
If any book can establish the truth about the whole episode, The Rosenberg File does it. A closely textured and sharply reasoned narrative, it reads like a spy story.
Houston Chronicle
R. Sheppard
This passionately supports its subjects' guilt and at the same time dramatically documents the ragged and unsavory way that justice was served. Radosh and Milton disclose an embarrassing trail of legal blundering, intimidation, judicial improprieties and political expedience.
—(R.E. Sheppard Time
Richard Eder
No fuller or fairer analysis is likely.
