The author is the best-known bête noire of the Central Intelligence Agency because of the exposures of CIA operations-and, worse, personnel-in his 1974 book Inside The Company, and his efforts since to discredit and destabilize the agency. This fascinating autobiography describes his difficulties with the U.S. and West European governments since he left the CIA and his support for nations and movements which, in his opinion, are victims of U.S. imperialism: e.g., Iran, Nicaragua and the Grenada of Maurice Bishop. The book is likely to raise blood pressure among members of the intelligence establishment-which is, of course, the intent.
