From: The Einstein File


This chapter explores the early 1950s, the context of the McCarthy era/McCarthyism and the McCarthy/Hoover anti communist crusade, and Einstein’s life and position during this period. It then looks at the unravelling Hoover’s spy case against Einstein, and continued accusations/records of an Einstein-espionage connection after his death, among other topics.
