Item Description...
Beginning in the late 1960s, John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr say, the study of communism in America was taken over by "revisionists" who have attempted to portray the U.S. as the aggressor in the Cold War and saw suspicion about the American Communist Party (CPUSA) as baseless "paranoia." In this intriguing book, they show 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 examine the ways in which revisionist scholars have ignored or distorted new evidence from recently-opened Russian archives about espionage links between Moscow and the CPUSA. They analyze the mythology that continues to suggest, against all evidence, that Alger Hiss, Julius Rosenberg, Harry Dexter White, Lauchlin Currie, and others who betrayed the United States were more sinned against than sinning. They set the record straight about the spies among us. 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. They show that while the international communist movement may be dead, conflict over the meaning of the communist experience in America is still very much with us.

Communism is not dead, it just moved uptown  Jul 10, 2008
I wondered where the Socialist and Communist cadre went to after the burnings and bombings of the 60's and 70's. They may have left the streets, but they are very much with us. They took a bath and cut their hair and infiltrated all the institutions of higher learning. I was amazed to see that the methods the left used 60 years ago continues today. Why do anything differently when repeating yourself seems so effective. Mr. Haynes book should be taught as a graduate course in every school in this wonderful country!
In Denial: Historians, Communism, and Espionage  Apr 21, 2008
Thanks to historians John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, we now know that Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal was a hotbed for hundred of spies for the Soviet Union during the 1930s and 1940s.

The Communist Party of the United States was a ripe recruiting ground for espionage, from the top leadership cadre down to the rank and file Party membership.

Courageous Americans who broke with the Party, such as former CPUSA General Secretary Benjamin Gitlow, author of The Whole of Their Lives: Communism in America: A Personal History and Intimate Portrayal of Its Leaders, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1948, have been vindicated in their warnings to the American people of this Trojan Horse within our country.

Some of the more notable scholarly works which have documented these facts include: Harvey Klehr, John Earl Haynes and Fridrikh Igorevich Firsov, The Secret World of American Communism, Yale University Press, 1995; Harvey Klehr, John Earl Haynes and Kyrill M. Anderson, The Soviet World of American Communism, Yale University Press, 1998; Allen Weinstein and Alexander Vassiliev, The Haunted Wood: Soviet Espionage in America - The Stalin Era, Random House, 1999; John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, Venona: Decoding Soviet Espionage in America, Yale University Press, 1999; Herbert Romerstein and Eric Breindel, The Venona Secrets: Exposing Soviet Espionage and America's Traitors, Regnery Publishing, 2000; Joseph Albright and Marcia Kunstel, Bombshell: The Secret Story of America's Unknown Atomic Spy Conspiracy, Crown, 1997; and Christopher Andrew and Vasili Mitrokhin, The Mitrokhin Archive and the Secret History of the KGB, Basic Books, 1999.

An excellent paper summarizing this voluminous research was delivered at the `International Communism and Espionage' session, European Social Science History Conference, March 2006, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, by John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr. It was entitled, "The Historiography of Soviet Espionage and American Communism: from Separate to Converging Paths." It is available online.

The shocking new revelations of factual evidence unearthed by these researchers has not always been welcomed in the larger scholarly community.

Two of the most intrepid of these historians, John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, have documented this on-going Battle of the Books in their celebrated, definitive work, In Denial: Historians, Communism & Espionage, Encounter Books, 2003.

For various reasons outlined in their book, many members of the academy have not let go of Cold War mythology and ideological distortions, and have actively sought to deny the new truths that emerged from these clandestine cloisters and dispute the documentary record.

They see controversy where none should exist. Refusing to believe that a new post-Cold War historiographic paradigm has emerged, they hold fast to an outdated interpretative status quo.

They do not want to come to terms with the shocking fact that Communism has been cast into the dustbin of human history.

Courageous historians such as Haynes and Klehr are attempting to provide the answers why this has happened.

Truth seeps into academic circles at last  Mar 7, 2008
This is a MUST read for anyone interested in foreign affairs, history, economics, or Communism. It flies way over the heads of the politically correct crowd, and shows the real, and documented, lay of the land.
Long Awaited Critique Of The Leftist Propaganda Machine  Jan 20, 2008
After many years and many books by Klehr and others documenting the irrefutable - that communism (especially Soviet communism) was a world-wide organized enemy of democratic societies, Klehr and Haynes go after the only viably remaining pro communist force in America - the apologists in academia. If more people were exposed to the illogic and immorality of goofs such as Eric Foner, Noam Chomskey and THOUSANDS of others entrenched in universities they could finally be relegated to the dust bin of history where they belong with their idols Kim Il Jong, Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Gus Hall.
Extremely Important Account of Liberal Historical Bias  Jan 13, 2008
A key principle of psychoanalytic theory is that wish distorts perception and leads to denial, self deception, and deceit. The authors of In Denial give many examples with detailed quotations which illustrate how Liberal/Socialist bias has blinded many historians to the realities of Communist Russia, Joseph Stalin, Russian espionage activities against America, and the role of the American Communist party in seeking to destroy America from before WWII to the present. All manner of sickening distortions are shown to have occurred in the world of books and articles by Academic historians. These distortions are extreme and immensely damaging to America. They are largely responsible for the possibility that America may elect its first Communist President in 2008.
