Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
Starting with the perspective of President John F. Kennedy during the beginning of the Cuban Missile Crisis, this book traces the role of spies during the struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union. Despite working together to end World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union developed strong military capability and established very different goals. The U.S. spy agency known as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) positioned itself to do a better job than the Soviet counterpart, the KGB. The book details the work of the competing spy groups and the ongoing war of weapons and words. Famous spies are described and the work of both spy agencies is explained. This conflict between two world powers lasted from the 1940s until the 1990s, when U.S. President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev agreed to end the Cold War. The text is accessible and the stories engaging, making this a high interest and exciting text. The book also includes a glossary and information about sources for further research. Reviewer: Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
