Overview


#1 New York Times bestseller for 13 consecutive weeks!

First published in 1952, Witness is the true story of Soviet spies in America and the trial that captivated a nation. Part literary effort, part philosophical treatise, this intriguing autobiography recounts the famous Alger Hiss case and reveals much more. Chambers' worldview and his belief that "man without mysticism is a monster" went on to help make political conservatism a national force.

Regnery History's Cold War Classics edition is the most comprehensive version of Witness ever published, featuring forewords collected from all previous editions, including discussions from luminaries William F. Buckley Jr., Robert D. Novak, Milton Hindus, and Alfred S. Regnery. Witness will appeal to movie audiences looking forward to Steven Spielberg's upcoming blockbuster Cold War movie, Bridge of Spies.

Editorial Reviews

Hilton Kramer
One of the few indispensable autobiographies ever written by an American — and one of the best written too... It deserves to be recognized as a first class achievement.

What People are Saying About This

John P. Marquand
Witness is much more than a series of intrigues and trials... no psychological novel can excede it in interest. No study of concflicting characters under stress could go deeper with Chambers, or be more puzzling.... The book was not written as literature, but literature it is of a high order.
