Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was first published around the time when the CIA was viewed as the devil incarnate. The book reflects this view of the CIA by its author primarily through the author's very detailed (and interesting) description of the operations he was involved or aware of. A very detailed business. The details of secret operations are more fascinating than anything that can be found in a John La Carre novel. The book is also serves as a very interesting autobiography. The author joins the CIA in order to fight communism but becomes so disillusioned that he decides to fight the organization that he was previously such a strong proponent. THis turn is also fascinating.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Philip Agee does a wonderful job of unmasking the villains and personel of the CIA. It is written in a diary format, with each occasion listed to the exact date. Philip Agee was a former CIA agent positioned in Ecuador. His story depicts how the Company goes about their business and describes what their business is.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I despise what Philip Agee did with this book, endangering the lives of real people and violating his oath as a commissioned officer in the clandestine service. I was also very surprised by the level of detail in the book, and concluded that he intended to betray the CIA well prior to leaving. I've served three overseas tours and three Washington assignments, and from all that time I can barely remember one cryptonym series and not a single true identity. I think Agee took notes and planned ahead to burn the CIA. This is a good diary, and I include it in this bibliography to represent the pedestrian side of the DO-the day to day monotony of going through the motions and doing agent recruitments and agent handling operations in third world countries where the bulk of what one does really does not contribute to U.S. national security or understanding.

Edit of 11 Jan 08 to add comment and links.

Comment: I am committed to reducing the secret budget from $60 billion a year to $12 billion, and the heavy metal military budget from $950 billion to $250 billion, with the savings directed toward waging peace and offering free education in all languages via free cell phones, the only way we will be able to create a prosperous world at peace.
