American Secret Intelligence: A Review Essay
John Prados comments on two recent books in the intelligence field that focus on spies and on Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) organization for scientific and technical work. From the spy as con artist to the cloak and dagger uses of laboratories and drafting tables, the works recast images of intelligence or break new ground in little understood areas. Both retain relevance today, although the main problems of intelligence are shifting away from areas where the CIA is strongest.
