Secret Agents by Marjorie Garber
Book DescriptionWhen the American Bar Association recreated the trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg on the fortieth anniversary of their execution, the jury acquitted the "mock Rosenbergs," finding that in today's courts they would not have been convicted of espionage. The 1950s trial of the Rosenbergs on charges of "Atomic Spying" and "stealing the secrets of the Atomic bomb" was a major event of Cold War America, galvanizing public opinion on all sides of the question. Secret Agents presents essays by lawyers, cultural critics, social historians and historians of science, as well as a reconsideration of the Rosenbergs by their younger son, Robert Meeropol. Secret Agents gives new resonance to a history we have for too long been willing to forget.

Books By Author Marjorie Garber
Shakespeare's Ghost Writers, Paperback (March 2010)
Presents an examination of the authorship controversy surrounding Shakespeare: the claim made repeatedly that the plays were ghost written. This title asks what is at stake in the imputation that 'Shakespeare' did not write the plays, and shows that the plays themselves both thematize and theorize that controversy.
Patronizing the Arts, Hardback (July 2008)
What is the role of the arts in American culture? Is art an essential element? If so, how should we support it? This book describes the history of patronage, and shows how patronage has elevated and damaged the arts in modern culture, and argues for the university as a serious patron of the arts.
Profiling Shakespeare, Paperback (May 2008)» View all books by Marjorie Garber
