By Whittaker Chambers
Alger Hiss. Whittaker Chambers. No longer household names, but in the decade following the conclusion of the Second World War, there may not have been two Americans more famous — or infamous — than they were.
On January 21, 1950, Alger Hiss, a senior State Department official, was convicted by a jury of two counts of perjury. The culmination of hundreds of hours of testimony before Congressional committees and two courts of law, Hiss's conviction was also a public exoneration of Whittaker Chambers, the man who had exposed Hiss as a Communist agent.
We are all indebted to Chambers for helping shine the light of truth on treacherous Communist traitors such as Hiss who were working to overthrow liberty, and for helping to raise the national consciousness and understanding of the insidious sickness that is Communism. Chambers' Witness abounds with insights into the true nature of Communism and its adherents, and into the great conflict between the "irreconcilable opposites" of "God or Man, Soul or Mind, Freedom or Communism".
