Spies is the fascinating, sometimes shocking story of the activities of the KGB in the United States during the 1930s and 40s. This notable book, based on KGB archives that have never before come to light, provides the most complete account of Soviet espionage in America ever written. In 1993 former KGB officer Alexander Vassiliev was permitted unique access to Stalin-era records of Soviet intelligence operations against the United States. Years later, living in Britain, Vassiliev retrieved his extensive notebooks of transcribed documents from Moscow. With these notebooks John Earl Haynes and co-authors Harvey Klehr and Alexander Vassiliev have meticulously constructed a new historical account.
Speaker Biography: John Haynes is a historian in the Library of Congress Manuscript Division.
