From the moment of Albert Einstein''s arrival in the United States in l933, the year of the Nazis'' ascent to power in Germany, until his death in l955, J. Edgar Hoover''s FBI, assisted by several other federal agencies, began feverishly collecting "derogatory information" in an effort to undermine the renowned physicist''s influence and destroy his reputation. Using material newly obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, Fred Jerome tells the story in depth of that anti-Einstein campaign, why and how the campaign originated, and provides the first detailed picture of Einstein''s little-known political activism. "The Einstein File" not only reveals a little-known aspect of Einstein''s considerable social and humanitarian concerns, but underscores the dangers that can arise to the American republic and the rule of law in times of obsession with national security.
From the Publisher:
Einstein's FBI files are opened to reveal a shocking campaign of public disinformation planned by J. Edgar Hoover to address the famous scientist's pacifism, opposition to McCarthy, and friendship with Paul Robeson.

Annotation:
Why did the FBI investigate Albert Einstein? According to Jerome, Einstein struggled for civil rights in a manner that did not accord with the Hoover Administration. This book describes the political Einstein.
