In this intriguing book, Haynes and Klehr document how, years after the death of communism, the leading historical journals and many prominent historians continue to teach that America's rejection of the Party was a tragic error, that American Communists were actually unsung heroes working for democratic ideals, and that those anti-Communist liberals and conservatives who drove the CPUSA to the margins of American politics in the 1950s were malicious figures deserving condemnation. The focus of "In Denial is what the authors call "lying about spying." Haynes and Klehr show how "revisionist" scholars have ignored or distorted documents from Russian archives indicating espionage links between Moscow and the CPUSA. They analyze the mythology that continues to hold, against all the evidence, that Alger Hiss, Julius Rosenberg, Harry Dexter White and others who betrayed the United States were more sinned against than sinning. Haynes and Klehr were the first U.S. historians who used the newly opened archives of the former Soviet Union to examine the history of American communism. "In Denial is the record of what they discovered there.
