Ropes of Sand: America's Failure in the Middle East

More revelations of the CIA and its works, these from a middle-rank official who dealt with Middle East matters for the Agency, the Pentagon and the National Security Council in the 1950s. The book is autobiographical, self-advertising, and filled with fascinating glimpses of the policies, "operations," and personalities of that time. Whether all that is said would be corroborated by those personalities is another question.
