Early Cold War Spies by John Earl Haynes
Book DescriptionCommunism was never a popular ideology in America, but the vehemence of American anticommunism varied from passive disdain in the 1920s to fervent hostility in the early years of the Cold War. Nothing so stimulated the white hot anticommunism of the late 1940s and 1950s more than a series of spy trials that revealed that American Communists had co-operated with Soviet espionage against the United States and had assisted in stealing the technical secrets of the atomic bomb as well as penetrating the US State Department, the Treasury Department, and the White House itself. This book, first published in 2006, reviews the major spy cases of the early Cold War (Hiss-Chambers, Rosenberg, Bentley, Gouzenko, Coplon, Amerasia and others) and the often-frustrating clashes between the exacting rules of the American criminal justice system and the requirements of effective counter-espionage.

Secret cables of the Comintern, 1933-1943, Hardback (July 2014)
Drawing on secret and therefore candid coded telegraphs exchanged between Communist Party leaders around the world and their overseers at the Communist International headquarters in Moscow, this book uncovers key aspects of the history of the Comintern and its significant role in the Stalinist ruling system during the years 1933 to 1943.
Spy Lost: Caught Between the KGB and the FBI, Paperback (March 2014)
Condemned to death by the KGB, Tuomi was born in America and an important asset to Soviet espionage. He collaborated with the FBI and saved his life but sacrificed his family in Russia. Kaarlo Tuomi (Rudolph Robertovich Saastamoinen) was born in 1916 in a Finnish farm community in Ishpeming, Michigan.
Spies, Paperback (February 2010)
Along with general insights into espionage tactics and the motives of Americans who spied for Stalin, this book resolves specific, long-seething controversies. It confirms, among many other things, that Alger Hiss cooperated with Soviet intelligence over a period of years, and that Robert Oppenheimer was never recruited by Soviet intelligence.
