The Strange Case of Alger Hiss

By The Earl Jowitt
Doubleday, 1953
380 pp. $3.95

The former Lord Chancellor of Great Britain reviews the famous case, with a perceptible favoring of the defense. While advantages may be gained by distance and a different perspective--the contrasts between American and British court procedure are interesting in themselves--it is doubtful whether the gains in this instance balance a certain lack of surefootedness in treating the evidence in this most controversial trial.
