The Einstein File: J. Edgar Hoover's Secret War Against the World's Most Famous Scientist

Fred Jerome
St. Martin's Press

Fred Jerome, who writes a column on science and media for Technology Review, enlisted the aid of The Litigation Group to help him obtain the 1500-page FBI file for this book. From Einstein's arrival in the U.S. in 1933 until his death in 1955, Jerome writes, the FBI, with the help of several other federal agencies, collected "derogatory information," in an effort to undermine Einstein's influence and destroy his prestige.
