Overview

Cold War espionage was a nightmare of errors, a wilderness of deceptions, treason, assassins, treachery, and invisible governments. France had agents in the United States, China had agents in East Germany, Poland had agents in Great Britain, and the United States and U.S.S.R. had agents everywhere - in governments, industry, the military, and even within one another's intelligence agencies. As fascinating as it was lethal, this labyrinthine world remains a mystery. Yet much is known and knowable, and this encyclopedia offers the latest and current information available from scholarship, memoirs, and journalism. Nearly 300 A-Z entries provide a fascinating glimpse into the subterranean world, events, people and operations of the Cold War. Each entry is thoroughly cross-referenced and concludes with suggested readings. This encyclopedia also contains an extensive annotated chronology and is thoroughly indexed, making it immensely useful to students and researchers of the seamier side of 20th-century world history, Cold War history, and world politics.
