Item description for Influence: The Soviet Task Leading to Pearl Harbor, the Iron Curtain, and the Cold War by Peter B. Niblo...
The Great Game of espionage is a game of spies, sabotage, distortion, lies. But it is also about INFLUENCE--conveying the delusion of friendship and cooperation while influencing world events from within a foreign government. So it was that an internationally respected senior statesman serving in the highest levels of the FDR administration was actually Stalin's asset.
How did it happen, and--more imortantly--how can we keep it from happening again? INFLUENCE outlines both the motivation, machination, and consequence of a foreign power pulling the strings of a high American official. INFLUENCE is both a throroughly documented account of our failings, and our best hope to prevent a recurrance of history.
