In Denial: Historians, Communism, and Espionage
Historian John Earl Haynes discussed his book, In Denial: Historians, Communism, and Espionage, published by Encounter Books. Mr. Haynes and co-author Harvey Klehr were the first American historians to utilize the recently opened archives of the former Soviet Union in their research. According to Mr. Haynes, the study of communism in America has been taken over by “revisionist historians,” who attempt to portray American communists in a favorable light and downplay the threat posed by communism to American democracy. In the book, the authors also examine the ways in which evidence of links between the U.S.S.R. and the American Communist Party have been ignored or modified. Following his remarks, Mr. Haynes answered questions from members of the audience. close
