Praise for 'America's Dreyfus'

Caroline Moorhead's review of America's Dreyfus in the Times Literary Supplement calls Brady's work 'brilliant and terrifying'.

"Brady chronicles the case against Hiss with scholarly thoroughness… What makes Brady’s book so persuasive is the depth and seriousness of her meticulous research… What is truly frightening in her book, and which goes far beyond the question of Hiss’s guilt or innocence, is the spectacle of a society engulfed in paranoia, fear-mongering and witch-hunts, in which people informed on their friends and careers were fashioned out of lies and rabble-rousing. As a portrait of an age, and a warning about the ease with which ambition and power corrupt, Joan Brady’s book is a remarkable document.”
