Overview

For readers unfamiliar with Cold War spooks and spookery, Trahair (social research and psychology, La Trobe U., Australia) offers a first resource for research, with entries on people, institutions, events, operations, and other aspects. Each entry is extensively referenced and cross-referenced to other entries. In addition to the main section, he provides a detailed chronology based on main entries and on research by others; and a glossary of some important technical terms used by spies and secret agents, which also contains short entries of people, agencies, and such that were not central enough to be included in the main section.
