Loans and legitimacy the evolution of Soviet-American relations, 1919-1933 by Katherine A. S Sibley ( )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Because the United States did not recognize the Soviet Union until 1933, historians have viewed the early Soviet American relationship as an ideological stand-off. Katherine Siegel, drawing on public, private, and corporate documents as well as newly opened Soviet archives, paints a different picture. She finds that business ties flourished between 1923 and 1930, American sales to the Soviets grew twentyfold, and American firms supplied Russians with more than a fourth of their imports. American businesses were only too eager to tap into huge Soviet markets. Along with purchases went credit from major American manufacturers and banks. Under the Soviets' New Economic Policy and first Five Year Plan, American firms invested in the U.S.S.R. and sold technical processes, provided consulting services, built factories, and trained Soviet engineers in the U.S. Most significantly, Siegel shows, this commercial relationship encouraged policy shifts at the highest levels of the U.S. government. Thus when Franklin D. Roosevelt opened diplomatic relations with Russia, he was building on ties that had been carefully constructed over the previous fifteen years. Siegel's study makes an important contribution to a new understanding of early Soviet-American relations
Red spies in America : stolen secrets and the dawn of the Cold War by Katherine A. S Sibley ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When the United States established diplomatic ties with the Soviet Union in 1933, it did more than normalize relations with the new Bolshevik state - it opened the door to a parade of Russian spies. In the 1930s and 1940s, Soviet engineers and technicians, under the guise of international cooperation, reaped a rich harvest of intelligence from our industrial plants. Factory layouts, aircraft blueprints, fuel formulas - all were grist for the Soviet espionage mill. And that, as Katherine Sibley shows, was just the beginning."--BOOK JACKET

Red spies in America stolen secrets and the dawn of the Cold War by Katherine A. S Sibley ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Meticulously documented through ... new research in American and Soviet archives, [the author's] book provides [a] detailed study of Soviet military-industrial espionage to date, revealing that the United States knew much more about Soviet operations than previously acknowledged. She tells of spies like Steve Nelson and Arthur Hiskey, who passed on information about he Manhattan Project; moles within the federal government like Nathan Silvermaster; and Soviet agents like Andrei Schevchenko, who pressed defense workers to divulge high tech secrets. At the same time, [the author] shows, hundreds of other Red agents went completely undetected. It was only through the revelations of defectors, and the postwar cracking of Soviet codes, that we began to fully understand these breachers in our national security. [The author] describes how our response to this wartime espionage shaped a generation of red-baiting - triggering loyalty programs, blacklists, and the infamous HUAC hearings - and how it has clouded U.S.-Soviet relations down to the present day. She also reviews recent cases - John Walker, Jr., Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen - that demonstrate how Russian efforts to gain American secrets continue well into our present times. ... [the author]s] work spells out what we actually knew about communist espionage and suggests how and why that knowledge should also shape our understanding of intelligence in the age of terrorism. -Dust jacket
