About the Book

When the American Bar Association recreated the trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg on the fortieth anniversary of their execution, the jury acquitted the mock Rosenbergs, finding that in today's courts they would not have been convicted of espionage.
The 1950s trial of the Rosenbergs on charges of Atomic Spying and stealing the secrets of the Atomic bomb was a major event of Cold War America, galvanizing public opinion on all sides of the question. Secret Agents presents essays by lawyers, cultural critics, social historians and historians of science, as well as a reconsideration of the Rosenbergs by their younger son, Robert Meeropol. Secret Agents gives new resonance to a history we have for too long been willing to forget.
