Casey: From The Oss To The Cia

By Joseph E. Persico
Viking, 1990
601 pp. $24.95

A rich, full biography that captures William Casey's tremendous energy, enthusiasm and single-minded focus on the perceived Soviet threat. The author concludes of the CIA years that Casey's "involvements in Afghanistan, China, the Philippines, Iran and Central America had not been simply those of a spy chief but those of a covert foreign minister."
