"A highly readable book---investigative journalism that qualifies as academic history. It is also scary."
"The Einstein File is a frightening look at a dark past, hopefully gone forever. It also reestablishes Einstein as a committed social activist, antiracist, antiwar critic of capitalism, whose daring extended beyond mathematics."
---Julian Bond, NAACP Chairman
"Meticulously researched and beautifully written, The Einstein File details a bleak chapter in this nation's history, when a rogue elephant FBI rode roughshod over civil liberties, including the rights and privacy of one of the world's great scientists. As the "war on terrorism" begins to resemble the "war on communism," Fred Jerome's highly informative book sounds a profoundly cautionary note."
---Gerald Horne, author of Race Woman: The Lives of Shirley Graham Du Bois
"A well-written, provocative book that could---and should---alter the ways Hoover and Einstein are viewed."
"Vivid and engrossing.... Everybody interested in American history should read it."
---Frederic Golden, former science editor of Time
