Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
David Wise is/was the one of the Edward Snowden's of his generation. He writes at length about the tactics that Republican Party, and Nixon, went to bug the Democrats at the Watergate. It talks about the forms of listening and personal intrusion devices that were available at the time. Sound familiar? He was also one of two reporters that broke the U2, Francis Gary Powers thing in the early 60's.

This should sit next to your copies of the Autobiography of Malcolm X, Revolutionary Suicide, the Manifesto, and your collection of Ed Abbey, Ed Snowden, Ellsberg, Chomsky, and Pauling.....at least.

Definitely worth the less than five dollars it takes to get it delivered to your door.
