"The Rosenberg case tested the limits of the federal government's new Cold War propaganda apparatus. Both the Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower administrations struggled to sell the guilt of the two spies and use the case to sell democracy and freedom overseas. However, citizens around the world did not always agree with the United States' execution of the Rosenbergs, which diminished the standing of the country in the eyes of the world, particularly so soon after the death of Stalin and the removal of the face of evil global Communism. In this first book, Lori Clune uses newly discovered State Department documents to demonstrate dissent to the Rosenberg decision from 80 cities in 48 countries in the early 1950s. American diplomats overseas observed and reported protests, petitions, letters of support, and newspaper editorials back to the State Department, along with policy recommendations. This project tells a new narrative of the Rosenbergs by transcending questions of guilt and innocence, adding a transnational component to the story and weaving the case into the Korean War, the death of Stalin, and the Cold War more broadly. While the Rosenbergs have been the subject of endless debate and discussion for half a century, this book offers an original approach to the topic, one that will no doubt add fodder to the politically passionate and provide a significant case study for those interested in the US relationship with the world"--

In this book Virginia Carmichael offers a provocative new interpretation of the Rosenberg story. Carmichael argues that this social drama produced many stories serving multiple interests and functions, many of which confront the politics of both writing and reading. She also demonstrates that this story's resistance to closure-manifest in its repeated tellings in historiography, biography, literature, and the visual and performing arts-suggests its lasting cultural impact on a nation coming to terms with the end of the cold war era.

Poetry. Ethel Rosenberg and her husband Julius were executed in 1953 for passing "atomic secrets" to the Soviet Union—the only Americans condemned to death during the Red Scare. In this powerful verse—a sonnet sequence, no less—Myles Gordon evokes her life and death with great insight and poignancy. In the process she is transformed from Cold War caricature to collateral damage, from an old newspaper photograph to a living presence. Written as an imagined monologue from Rosenberg to her brother and accuser David Greenglass—who decades later recanted his testimony—this cycle revisits her childhood in a poor Jewish family in New York, and evokes the horror of her death and the visions she might have had "in between the charges" it took to end her life. As the spectre of Cold War threatens to return, Ethel Rosenberg's life and death remind us of the risks facing all people of conscience in a binary world of "with us or against us," when loyalty to the state eclipses devotion to mankind. If learning the lessons of her history prevents us from repeating our past, then her death need not have been in vain. "Myles Gordon is one of the outstanding poets of his generation." —Kathleen Spivack

The arrest, trial and execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg in 1951 mesmerised an America coming to grips with the early Cold War and the anxiety aroused by the Soviet Union's testing of the atomic bomb. However, in 1965, Walter Schneir famously presented evidence that the Rosenbergs were innocent and had been framed by the FBI - a case which was brought into question in 1995 when the FBI released 3000 Soviet intelligence documents. This prompted Schneir to continue his research, which has lead to surprising and revelatory results.

"Exoneration: The Trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and Morton Sobell &mdash Prosecutorial deceptions, suborned perjuries, anti-Semitism, and precedent for today's unconstitutional trials " explores the sensational 20th century "spy trial" of 1951 that ended with the executions of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. "Exoneration" exposes the political agenda of the prosecution's strategy in the courtroom accusing the defendants of treason on behalf of an enemy, although the United States and the Soviet Union were not at war. Even though no evidence was presented to support the charge of treason, treason was used by the judge as justification for executing the Rosenbergs. "Exoneration" is a compelling, first-person account from the epicenter of the 1950s campaign to save the Rosenbergs, enriched with new historical material that has never appeared before. Authors Emily and David Alman co-founded the Committee to Secure Justice in the Rosenberg Case in 1951 to obtain either a new trial or clemency for the Rosenbergs. Using government documents as proofs, the Almans show secret, illegal meetings between the Attorney General and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to make sure the Supreme Court would not stop the executions. "Exoneration" also documents the pervasive anti-Semitic sentiments of J. Edgar Hoover, the Director of the FBI, and of his colleagues. At the same time our government was consigning the Rosenbergs to the death chamber, our government was importing many thousands of "ex"-Nazi experts in psychological warfare and torturous medical experiments into top positions in our military and scientific organizations. "Exoneration" demonstrates that precedents created at the 1951 trial have, over nearly 60 years, fundamentally altered our system of justice. In the 21st century, we have a courtroom system in which accusations of disloyalty, espionage, treason and terrorism are tried in special courts from which the Constitution is barred. The authors warn that the nation is gradually accepting a totalitarian system of justice that will inflict tragic miscarriages of justice. The authors argue for a widespread re-dedication to American values to restore our formerly unified Constitutional system of justice. An important step to reclaiming the Constitution for American justice, the authors say, is reopening the Rosenberg case and granting the defendants exoneration. Historian Howard Zinn writes, "More important than questions of guilt or innocence are the challenges this book makes to the justice system in our country." Rob Okun, editor of a book of artists responses to the Rosenbergs, proclaims, ""Exoneration" is sure to become the bible of this cautionary chapter in U.S. history....This book belongs on the shelves of every citizen who wants the truth behind the headlines." Michael Meeropol, the Rosenberg's oldest son, says, "With the benefit of history, I now realize that it was the work of the Committee that was most crucial in raising doubts in ordinary people's minds....Read this book for the incredible story of courage and action. Read it for the surprises....Read this book, too, because in recalling the story of how a handful of people stood up to the U.S. government....we can be reminded of the very best in our American culture." Robert Meeropol, the Rosenberg's youngest son, writes ..".Even if my father and others conspired to commit espionage, they did not 'steal the secret of the Atomic Bomb, ' and they did not commit treason and the U.S. government was aware of this distinction all along....My parents should be exonerated because their prosecution and execution were the result of a government-orchestrated conspiracy to falsely enhance the charges against them."

4-H, the iconic rural youth program run by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has enrolled more than 70 million Americans over the last century. This book shows how 4-H, like the countryside it often symbolises, is the product of the modernist ambition to efficiently govern rural economies, landscapes, and populations.

Cold War Statesmen Confront the Bomb: Nuclear Diplomacy Since 1945 is a path-breaking work that uses biographical techniques to test one of the most important and widely debated questions in international politics: Did the advent of the nuclear bomb prevent the Third World War? Many scholars and much conventional wisdom assumes that nuclear deterrence has prevented major power war since the end of the Second World War; this remains a principal tenet of US strategic policy today. Others challenge this assumption, and argue that major war would have been `obsolete' even without the bomb. This book tests these propositions by examining the careers of ten leading Cold War statesmen--Harry S Truman; John Foster Dulles; Dwight D. Eisenhower; John F. Kennedy; Josef Stalin; Nikita Krushchev; Mao Zedong; Winston Churchill; Charles De Gaulle; and Konrad Adenauer--and asking whether they viewed war, and its acceptability, differently after the advent of the bomb. The book'sauthors argue almost unanimously that nuclear weapons did have a significant effect on the thinking of these leading statesmen of the nuclear age, but a dissenting epilogue from John Mueller challenges this thesis.
