The Brother

&#8220;A fresh and fast-paced study of one of the most important crimes of the twentieth century&#8221; (<I>The Washington Post</I>), <I>The Brother</I> now discloses new information revealed since the original publication in 2003&#8212;including an admission by his sons that Julius Rosenberg was indeed a Soviet spy and a confession to the author by the Rosenbergs&#8217; co-defendant.<BR><BR>Sixty years after their execution in June 1953 for conspiring to steal atomic secrets, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg remain the subjects of great emotional debate and acrimony. The man whose testimony almost single-handedly convicted them was Ethel Rosenberg&#8217;s own brother, David Greenglass.
