Прислали мне книгу фактов ЦРУ (2012), вышедшую в Скайхорсе.
Данные книги - приблизительно на начало лета 2011, так что Мубарак у них уже свергнут, а Каддафи еще нет и Судан еще не разделен.
Нет, почему-то, главы "Весь мир", которая на сайте ЦРУ есть.
И мне не понравилось отсутствие цветной вклейки с картами (карты есть, но нецветные, а карты к разделам по странам не только мелкие,но и подслеповатые) и нет вклейки с флагами (описание флагов есть в разделе каждой страны, но вклейки - как в русских изданиях - нет).

Упоминавшаяся выше книга д-ра Тимоти Нафтали "История ЦРУ" не выйдет. Это АМАЗОН ввел в заблуждение. Д-р Нафтали вообще не пишет эту книгу, он сейчас работает над книгой о Кеннеди и Холодной войне. (Инфа 100%, от самого автора).

Willing Accomplices: How KGB covert influence agents created Political Correctness, Obama's hate-America-first political platform, and destroyed America
Kent Clizbe (Author)

Price: $18.99 (это в США, в Европе тоже 19, но Евро)

Paperback: 394 pages
Publisher: Andemca Publishing (July 4, 2011)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0983426406
ISBN-13: 978-0983426400

Book Description
Publication Date: July 4, 2011
CIA case officer, Kent Clizbe, analyzes counter-intelligence details to demonstrate that KGB covert influence agents in American education and academia, Hollywood, and the media inserted the anti-American payload that became Political Correctness (PC). The KGB officers suffered death in Stalin's purges. Their American Willing Accomplices, not needing guidance, built the elite mindset of "reflexive loathing of the United States and its people" that defines PC. In 2008, America elected its first PC President. Obama ran on a barely concealed platform of PC loathing of America and its people. Now we see the results. Willing Accomplices provides the foundation for critical consideration of the roots of the PC-Progressive political platform and its dire consequences in 21st century America.

а вот та книжка про Пеньковского, про которую я упоминал и которая должны выйти в августе-сентябре.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Codename-Hero-B ... 921&sr=8-2

Codename Hero: MI6, the CIA and the True Story Behind the Cold War's Most Dangerous Operation

Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Ltd (13 Sep 2012)
ISBN-10: 1849839271
ISBN-13: 978-1849839273

Product Description
In August 1960, a Soviet colonel called Oleg Penkovsky tried to make contact with the West. His first attempt was to approach two young American students in Moscow. He handed them a bulky envelope and pleaded with them to deliver it to the American embassy. MI6 and the CIA came to believe Penkovsky was genuine and so the two agencies decided to run the operation jointly. It ran right through the Berlin crisis -- in an astonishing near-miss, Penkovsky learned that the Wall was going to be built four days before it happened but was unable to contact his handlers -- and the Cuban Missile Crisis, in which rocket manuals Penkovsky had handed over were crucial in determining what Khrushchev was doing, and helped Kennedy and his team end the crisis and avert a nuclear war. Penkovsky, codenamed HERO, is widely seen as the most important spy of the Cold War, and the CIA-MI6 joint operation to run him has never been bettered. But had the KGB already 'turned' Penkovsky and were the Russians making sure he saw the information they wanted him to see? If so, it may even have been possible that the whole Cuban Missile Crisis might have been a Russian deception operation. Thrilling, evocative and hugely controversial, Codename Hero blows apart some of the myths about one of the Cold War's most well-known operations as the world stood on the brink of nuclear destruction.

About the Author
Jeremy Duns is the author of the Paul Dark spy thrillers, published by Simon & Schuster. His first novel, Free Agent, was a Daily Telegraph Thriller of the Year 2009, and received praise from William Boyd, Eric Van Lustbader and David Morrell, while The Guardian wrote: 'Deep knowledge of espionage and classic spy novels informs this excellent debut'. The Times called the second book in the series, Song of Treason (first published as Free Country), 'a masterly excursion back to the bad old days of the Cold War', while The Guardian said it was 'a treat for fans of traditional Len Deighton-style spy thrillers'. The Moscow Option will be published in early 2012, followed by Codename: Hero, a non-fiction investigation of the Oleg Penkovsky espionage operation.

Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies [Hardcover]
Ben Macintyre (Author)

List Price: $26.00

This title will be released on July 31, 2012.


Book Description
Publication Date: July 31, 2012
In his celebrated bestsellers Agent Zigzag and Operation Mincemeat, Ben Macintyre told the dazzling true stories of a remarkable WWII double agent and of how the Allies employed a corpse to fool the Nazis and assure a decisive victory. In Double Cross, Macintyre returns with the untold story of the grand final deception of the war and of the extraordinary spies who achieved it.

On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy and suffered an astonishingly low rate of casualties. D-Day was a stunning military accomplishment, but it was also a masterpiece of trickery. Operation Fortitude, which protected and enabled the invasion, and the Double Cross system, which specialized in turning German spies into double agents, deceived the Nazis into believing that the Allies would attack at Calais and Norway rather than Normandy. It was the most sophisticated and successful deception operation ever carried out, ensuring that Hitler kept an entire army awaiting a fake invasion, saving thousands of lives, and securing an Allied victory at the most critical juncture in the war.

The story of D-Day has been told from the point of view of the soldiers who fought in it, the tacticians who planned it, and the generals who led it. But this epic event in world history has never before been told from the perspectives of the key individuals in the Double Cross System. These include its director (a brilliant, urbane intelligence officer), a colorful assortment of MI5 handlers (as well as their counterparts in Nazi intelligence), and the five spies who formed Double Cross’s nucleus: a dashing Serbian playboy, a Polish fighter-pilot, a bisexual Peruvian party girl, a deeply eccentric Spaniard with a diploma in chicken farming and a volatile Frenchwoman, whose obsessive love for her pet dog very nearly wrecked the entire plan. The D-Day spies were, without question, one of the oddest military units ever assembled, and their success depended on the delicate, dubious relationship between spy and spymaster, both German and British. Their enterprise was saved from catastrophe by a shadowy sixth spy whose heroic sacrifice is revealed here for the first time.

With the same depth of research, eye for the absurd and masterful storytelling that have made Ben Macintyre an international bestseller, Double Cross is a captivating narrative of the spies who wove a web so intricate it ensnared Hitler’s army and carried thousands of D-Day troops across the Channel in safety.

Для меня важно, правда, чтобы книга не была исключительно комплиментарной, с одними одами и восхвалениями непобедимых моссадовцев. Ну, до октября еще долго, м.б. что-то узнаем поподробней.

Capturing Jonathan Pollard: How One of the Most Notorious Spies in American History Was Brought to Justice
Ronald J. Olive

Publication Date: September 1, 2009

Jonathan Pollard, an intelligence analyst working in the U.S. Naval Investigative Service's Anti-Terrorist Alert Center, systematically stole highly sensitive secrets from almost every major intelligence agency in the United States. In just eighteen months he sold more than one million pages of classified material to Israel. No other spy in U.S. history has stolen so many secrets, so highly classified, in such a short period of time. Author Ronald Olive was in charge of counterintelligence in the Washington office of the Naval Investigative Service that investigated Pollard and garnered the confession that led to his arrest in 1985 and eventual life sentence. His book reveals details of Pollard's confession, his interaction with the author when suspicion was mounting, and countless other details never before made public. Olive points to mistaken assumptions and leadership failures that allowed Pollard to ransack America's defense intelligence long after he should have been caught.

Biography
I spent thirty years in law enforcement, the last twenty-two with the NCIS-The Naval Criminal Investigative Service. As the assistant special agent in charge of counterintelligence I personally led the Jonathan Pollard espionage investigation and garnered his confession to spying for the Israeli government against the United States.
In October 2006, when the first edition of Capturing Jonathan Pollard was released, I found myself in an environment never before experienced. I first presented the story of the Pollard case to a sold-out crowd at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., with C-Span Book TV in one dark corner and Israeli TV in another. Many favorable book reviews followed. I kept seeing quotes like "A chilling "true" spy thriller "- "A story of intrigue and espionage" but the superlative surprise came when the Israeli Jerusalem Post and Ha'aretz newspapers published substantial reviews. Although not overly enthusiastic, they proved fair and balanced. One reviewer even recommended that supporters of Pollard should read my book.
The true Pollard story is an extreme example of a counterintelligence failure where mistaken assumptions and leadership failures enabled Pollard to ransack America's defense intelligence long after he should have been fired.
When I present the Pollard case to organizations today, my focus is on how and why this espionage disaster occurred and how it could have been prevented. As the saying goes, "If we don't learn from our past we're doomed to repeat it." The Pollard case is indeed a textbook example of what can happen within our government and corporate America when management and security fail to follow their own policies. The prelude to potential loss of classified and proprietary information begins when rules, regulations, and procedures are misinterpreted, misunderstood, manipulated, circumvented, bent, or simply ignored. Failure of leadership at all levels to take corrective action against employees who are problematic or show signs of potential security risk increase the chance for loss of sensitive information. Finally, employees who become complacent and fail to report security violations or suspicious activity in the workplace can ultimately lead to a total breakdown of national, organizational, and corporate security, unlocking the vault for "Insider Betrayal."
But out of tragedy come lessons. In addition to presenting a behind-the-scenes account, my goal is to provide vital insight into how Pollard's espionage activities could have been prevented. I will consider my effort in writing this book worthwhile if it raises awareness about the need for vigilance on the part of those entrusted with protecting the national defense secrets of the United States.
I own and operate my own company, Consulting and Confidential Investigations Int'l LLC, near Phoenix, Arizona. I enjoy telling the Pollard story and engaging large audiences. People everywhere tell me "truth is stranger than fiction" and walk away in astonishment at how Pollard actually took, and subsequently sold to Israel - more than one million pages of classified material - would fill a six-by-ten-foot room with the stacks rising six feet high.
I also teach part time for the Department of Energy Counterintelligence Training Academy, and work as a retired law enforcement consultant with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, "Team Adam-Missing Child Rapid Response System." In my spare time I enjoy training my horse and my wife and I enjoy trail riding in the mountains.

В ноябре выйдет новый роман Роберта Литтел о Киме Филби "Молодой Филби".
Думаю, что учитывая то, как Литтел изучает материал перед написанием романа, этот РОМАН будет поглубже ДОКУМЕНТАЛЬНОЙ книги Долгополова.
