Clean, tight, unmarked; very light wear to inside corners; light age tanning; otherwise spine straight and uncreased; appears unread; This is an insider's view of the CIA. Among many other startling disclosures, McGarvey, a former agent, reveals that the CIA stole a Soviet Sputnick. McGarvey's main purpose, however, is to shatter the myth that the CIA is a superhuman organization capable of every sort of trick and strategy. Here, for the first time, the reader sees another side of intelligence operations: the loneliness, the tension, the broken marriages, and the trauma of exposing children to danger in foreign outposts. Yet in spite of his critical views, McGarvey makes it clear that the CIA is a vital part of America's defense system, although sorely in need of change.
