Abstract:

This classic of spycraft is based on Allen Dulles's incomparable experience as a diplomat, international lawyer, and America's premier intelligence officer. Dulles was a high-ranking officer of the CIA's predecessor, the Office of Strategic Services, and was present at the inception of the CIA, where he served eight of his ten years there as director. Here he sums up what he learned about intelligence from nearly a half-century of experience in foreign affairs. Dulles reveals much about how intelligence is collected and processed, and how the resulting estimates contribute to the formation of national policy; methods of surveillance, and the usefulness of defectors from hostile nations; how the Soviet State Security Service recruited operatives and planted "illegals" in foreign countries; not only the techniques of modern espionage but also the philosophy and role of intelligence in a free society threatened by global conspiracies.--From publisher description.
