AUTHORReuben, William A.
TITLEThe Atom Spy Hoax
CITYNew York, NY

This book claims that the highly publicized atom spies were a ruse of the United States government. The case is presented for the Canadian spy ring, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Klaus Fuchs and many others. The complaint is that no one ever made it clear what atomic secrets were or that they even truly existed, and that the evidence of espionage was weak at best. The accusations of the Un-American Activities Committee are seen as the words of a puppet with the strings being pulled by the United States government. The author claims that there is no evidence to support the theory of any Soviet spy ring. The book was originally published in 1954 and reflects a reaction to the strong anti-communist feelings in the United States in the early 1950s.
