Overview

CIA: Secrets of "The Company" lifts the lid on America's foremost intelligence outfit, the Central Intelligence Agency — one of the world's most powerful secret agencies. This extraordinary book reveals the hidden and often shocking history of an agency so massive, monolithic and chillingly corporate that those on its payroll — from agents to "supergrades" — dubbed it "The Company".

From assassination attempts and LSD experiments, to guns-for-drugs deals and the US-declared "War on Terror" — this is a no-holds-barred expos� of the murky goings-on behind the Company's closed doors...The story unfolds to reveal a sorry catalogue of mistakes — some ghastly, some hilarious — misdeeds, and alleged crimes committed by the Agency. In the post-9/11 world, an examination of the workings of the CIA has never been more valid or timely — this is the unofficial history they don't want you to read.

  • The unexpurgated history of the CIA, from its foundation in 1947 to the present day
  • Intriguing insights into the Company's more unorthodox methods
  • Sifts t through the mountains of allegations and web of half-truths
  • Analyses the Company's greatest "hits" — and most embarrassing "misses"
