Phantom Spies, Phantom Justice
by, Mariam Moskowitz
Memoir
October 5, 2010 by Bunim & Bannigan Ltd


Many years of diligent research by a survivor of the McCarthy-inspired anti-Communist hysteria of the 1950s reveals, through court records, FBI correspondence, interviews, and lawyer's records, how Miriam Moskowitz, now 94, was unjustly convicted of conspiracy to obstruct justice, and how her two years in prison changed her life. An introduction by Anne Montgomery, RSCJ, relates Ms. Moskowitz's experience to present day persecution of 'terrorists.'
 
''For the Commie of six decades ago we now have the 'terrorist'; ....military tribunals mock justice; and torture is legalized. Peace activists who dare to uphold international law face pre-trial motions that forbid mention of the Bible, conscience, the illegality of indiscriminate weapons under international law..., Mariam Moskowitz has the courage and clarity to expose the elements common to those years, prominent among them the deliberate instigation of fear of imminent attack by an evil enemy, and the resulting acceptance of the targeting and demonizing of individuals because of the ethnicity of relationships. ...The corollary is guilt by association and loss of any presumption of innocence before conviction." --Anne Montgomery, from the Introduction (summary from goodreads_
