Abstract:

For two and a half decades David Atlee Phillips stood "the night watch" as an agent in the arcane profession of espionage. As a Central Intelligence Agency officer he rose to become director of the Western Hemisphere Division. Phillips gives an eminently readable rendering of his experiences in eight countries; his account, sometimes humorous, sometimes harrowing, is always fascinating and the implications are profound. Phillips recalls impromptu meetings with presidents and revolutionaries, statesmen and assassins. While he is candid about the CIA's failures, The Night Watch is an avowedly pro-CIA book.
