Friedman, NSLR 19.1, says that the "former Secretary of Defense has devised [five] scenarios in which the short-term thinking that drives budget decisions today leads to grave crises in the future.... Weinberger believes that America has dissipated its strength," that U.S. "technological superiority is diminishing.... His scenarios illustrate the potential consequences of under-investment in advanced technologies." Campbell, History 26.1, sees The Next War as "a very worthwhile attempt to alert Americans to threats to the nation's security."

"In recent years, private contractors have increasingly taken on important military functions, operating in some 50 countries.... They provide security to civilian aid workers, other contractors, and even military forces. They train local armies for combat, develop future American soldiers..., and interrogate prisoners. At times, they've engaged in combat. During the invasion and occupation of Iraq, the U.S. has relied heavily on their support -- private contractors make up a workforce of about 20,000, double the British troop presence."

Weinstein, Allen. Perjury: The Hiss-Chambers Case. New York: Knopf, 1978. Toronto: Random House, 1978. Rev. ed. New York: Vintage, 1979. [pb] Newly rev. ed. New York: Random House, 1997. 3d rev. ed. Stanford, CA: Hoover Institution Press, 2013.
Historian and former U.S. archivist Allen Weinstein died 18 June 2015.
Clark comment: After spending almost 10 years searching for information to vindicate Hiss, Weinstein concluded that Hiss was guilty of perjury and espionage. This remains the book to read on the Hiss case, especially the newly revised edition with its additional material. The downside of the new edition is that it seems to stretch to justify itself.
Commenting on the 3d revised edition, Peake, Studies 58.3 (Sep. 2014), calls this work "the essence of brilliant scholarship. It will stand as a benchmark for those working in the challenging field of counterespionage."
Ehrman, Studies, Winter-Spring 2001, comments that "since Perjury appeared, no significant work has repeated the claim of a frame-up or argued that Hiss was innocent." Pforzheimer calls Perjury "an important study of a major case of communist espionage in the U.S. in the 1930s and 1940s," while Petersen says it "is a meticulously researched scholarly treatment."
Victor Navasky, "Allen Weinstein's Docudrama," The Nation, 3 Nov. 1997, 11-16, remains unconvinced, and continues (Navasky, "The Case Not Proved Against Alger Hiss," The Nation, 8 Apr. 1978) to question Weinstein's use of his sources in arriving at his conclusion. Navasky argues that the revised edition of Perjury reprints interviews that have been challenged by the interviewees themselves "without indicating that they've been challenged." He also has reservations about the Venona transcripts, calling them "documents said to be decoded and annotated cable traffic ... between Moscow and its U.S. agents" (emphasis added.). Nevasky concludes that "it is at best a hazardous enterprise to attempt definitive readings of the tea leaves as soon as they are leaked, sold or selectively released by this or that intelligence source."
Allen Weinstein, "'Perjury,' Take Three," New Republic, 29 April 1978, 19-21, fires back at Navsky's criticisms of Perjury.

CIA provided some of his funding, and got most of the blame."

Auer and Halloran, Parameters (Spring 1996), comment that once the author "brings his narrative to Potsdam, he slips into a day-by-day account that, despite its meandering, provides certain insights. For one thing, arguments over the fate of Poland and war reparations from Germany,... seemed to have taken more time than discussions over how to make Japan surrender." However, the book "is marred by factual errors." For example, Weintraub mistakes the Kuriles" for the Ryukyus.

"Russia's intelligence services, with one of their own in the Kremlin and a reform-battered public yearning for order, are enjoying something they never knew under the old Soviet system: a surge of popular approval and prestige."
