Anyone interested in spies will know the name Nigel West. Currently the European editor of the International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence, West is also the author of several Scarecrow books on espionage, including Historical Dictionary of British Intelligence and Historical Dictionary of International Intelligence. As we learn from this resource, sex has played a significant role in a surprising number of espionage cases. For example, FBI agent Earl Pitts sold secrets to the Soviets to ease his financial burdens, which came from his habitually heavy use of male and female prostitutes. Yuri Nosenko collaborated with the CIA after having misappropriated KGB funds to entertain expensive women while on official duties in Geneva, and Aleksandr Ogorodnik of the Soviet foreign ministry was persuaded to become a spy by his pregnant Spanish lover, an agent recruited by the CIA. You will also find here details of Delilah's seduction of Samson in 1161 B.C.E.; John F. Kennedy and his lover, Mary Meyer; and much more.
