Spies, Dupes, and Diplomats
Spies, Dupes, and Diplomats
By Ralph De Toledano
Little, Brown, 1952, 244 pp

The book starts with the story of the extremely effective, Soviet-directed, Sorge spy ring in Tokyo and Shanghai and then moves on to a general indictment of American Far Eastern policy before and after Pearl Harbor. The link between the two themes is not clearly established, but rests in part upon the premise that professional spies not only gather information but recommend and determine policies.
