New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1974. Hardcover. x, 525p., illus., inscribed "Dearest Syd, You learned the lesson well. Almost too well. Love and affection, Morty [Morton Sobell]" Sydney was Sobell's step-daughter, foxing, spine sloped, worn dj.
"An electrical engineer with access to classified documents, Sobell was convicted along with the Rosenbergs as an 'atom spy.' He writes of the injustice of his conviction, largely influenced by his erstwhile membership in the Communist Party.
