This description of the CIA's activities, including its covert operations, has the ring of authenticity. The author, a sophisticated career officer with a quarter century of experience, upholds the necessity for various forms of espionage, and believes that excesses or abuses could be controlled through limited congressional oversight, an internal ombudsman and wise Presidential leadership. One of the more balanced works of recent years on the agency.
