    schema:description ""This publication marks a new departure for this extraordinary man, now approaching his 80s. He remains as determined as ever to bring home to the world the extent of Soviet espionage in the West and beyond and, most importantly, the abuses of power - indeed the criminality - practised in the former Soviet Union by the ruling Communist party primarily through the medium of the KGB, so that they should never re-occur." "In this volume Mitrokhin presents two dictionaries produced by the KGB itself to define its activities in both offensive and defensive intelligence work. The translated documents tell the basic story of the KGB's methods and targets and will be of interest to the general public as well as to the specialist."--Jacket."@en ;
