Overview

Investigative reporter Edward Jay Epstein defines the a seldom seen universe of intelligence and counterintelligence in Deception: The Invisible War Between the KGB and the CIA. Set in the era of the Cold War, it explores the ultimate art of nations: Winning without fighting, or, in a single word, deception. It concerns, as James Jesus Angleton described it to the author, " a state of mind �and the mind of the state."
Praise For Deception
�Edward Jay Epstein ( Legend: The Secret World of Lee Harvey Oswald ) delves deep into the wheels-within-wheels of superpower intelligence and counterintelligence, showing ways in which the CIA and the KGB have been "provoked, seduced, lured into false trails, blinded, and turned into unwitting agents." Readers will find new information here on a multitude of subjects: programs involving CIA-written books published under defectors' names; the story of Yuri Nosenko, a KGB officer who defected in 1963 and was "at the heart of everything that happened at the CIA for a decade"; and the theories of James Angleton, the former CIA chief of counterintelligence, on the hidden motives of KGB super-mole Kim Philby. The book concludes with an ominously plausible argument that Gorbachev's glasnost is merely the sixth phase in a grand strategy of Soviet deception conceived soon after the Bolshevik Revolution. Highly recommended.�
---Publishers Weekly
"Epstein's account of the world of intelligence is fascinating,
instructive, and, in parts, sensational."
�Irving Kristol American Enterprise Institute

"This is an important book that reflects an epoch in United States
counterintelligence operations and philosophy."
�William R. Harris The RAND Corporation

"A brilliant investigator examines the fascinating history of glasnost
and the unseen motives and machinery of the Soviet state."
�Lou Dobbs , Fox News Network
