The Survival Factor: Israeli Intelligence from World War I to the Present

By Stanley A. Blumberg and Gwinn Owens
Putnam, 1982
307 pp. $15.95
Purchase

Israel's Mossad, an organization which lives by and depends on secrecy, has recently found its exploits celebrated in print by a number of enterprising and admiring journalists, and some of the subjects covered are still burning, or at least smouldering, issues. This book is hardly professional or authoritative history, but it is rich in detail and based on many different sources, and much of it rings true. Sensationalism, but then most of the episodes were in fact sensational.
