Regnery Pub., Aug 1, 1987 - Biography & Autobiography - 808 pages
3 Reviews
First published in 1952, Witness was at once a literary effort, a philosophical treatise, and a bestseller. Whittaker Chambers had just participated in America's trial of the century in which Chambers claimed that Alger Hiss, a full-standing member of the political establishment, was a spy for the Soviet Union. This poetic autobiography recounts the famous case, but also reveals much more. Chambers' worldview--e.g. "man without mysticism is a monster"--went on to help make political conservatism a national force.

This was the best price and far below anything I could find on the web for this older book. It came promptly and in new condition as promised. This is a book which should be read for the history it contains and for the fine writing. Read full review
