The Hiss labyrinth : six profiles.
When the Hiss-Chambers case first burst on the scene in 1948, its main characters and events seemed more appropriate to spy fiction than to American reality. The case has continued to make headlines and to attract considerable media attention in the decades since Perjury was first published in 1978. This new edition of the book incorporates evidence available only in the past several decades, including a number of previously undiscovered or unavailable records, bringing the Hiss-Chambers's amazing story up to the present. A new feature in this edition is a series of narrative profiles of six important figures in the case, including Richard Nixon, all of whose lives were changed by Hiss-Chambers. The case caused widespread political damage and much human suffering. Although nothing written at a distance of more than six decades can undo those effects, this analysis can help to explain the passion that the case still arouses. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

"During the years of 1949-1950 in communist-ruled Hungary not only individuals but whole families - including babies - were considered liable for hindering the building of the 'people's democracy'. The cause for eviction from the dwelling-place became 'being of class alien descent'; its consequence was the total confiscation of property and possessions without court order, by administrative decree. This volume dela with the database concerning the the deportees from Budapest based on available archival sources. The study following it presents the forced relocations in Romania between 1949 and 1951. The last part of the book presents flashbacks to different episodes in the Zichy families' lives. It shall illustrate the fate of the Hungarian aristocracy, during the second World War, and during the German and Russian occupation of Hungary up to 1991" -- publisher description.

Lessons and legacies for child survivors.
This groundbreaking book offers a comprehensive documentary history of children whose parents were identified as enemies of the Soviet regime from its inception through to Joseph Stalin's death. When parents were arrested, executed, or sent to the Gulag, their children also suffered. Millions of children, labeled 'socially dangerous', lost parents, homes, and siblings. Co-edited by Cathy A. Frierson, a senior American scholar, and Semyon S. Vilensky, Gulag survivor and compiler of the Russian documents, the book offers documentary and personal perspectives. The editors present top-secret documents in translation from the Russian state archives, memoirs, and interviews with child survivors. The editors' narrative reveals how such prolonged child victimization could occur, who knew about it, and who tried to intervene on the children's behalf. The editors show how the emotions from childhood trauma persist into the twenty-first century, passing from victims to their children and grandchildren. Interviews with child survivors also display their resilient ability to fashion productive lives despite family destruction and stigma. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
