The Central Intelligence Agency is essential in the fight to keep America safe from foreign attacks. This two-volume work traces through facts and documents the history of the CIA, from the people involved to the operations conducted for national security.

• Covers the history of the CIA from its days prior to World War II, when it was known as the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), supplying comprehensive, objective information in a convenient ready reference

• Provides documents formerly classified as ''top secret'' and an extensive bibliography to allow further research by students

• Includes contributions from about two dozen experts in their field of study, ranging from a psychologist describing CIA ''mind experiments'' to former practitioners and historians writing on covert operations during the Cold War

• Provides primary documents such as the oldest formerly classified document held by the CIA (how to make invisible ink, 1918) and intelligence reports that Osama bin Laden was planning to attack the United States (2001)


The book as it stands has plenty of good information and is a useful contribution to espionage studies.' - Reference Reviews Researchers at all levels will be able to use these primary sources in conjunction with the time line and analysis as a launching point for their own projects. The encyclopedia rises above the goals of merely summarizing knowledge. It should remain relevant as a documentary record for many years, even as its content becomes dated and the CIA moves forward in its mission in a very complicated world. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All libraries and levels. - Choice Offering readers a well-documented history of the CIA and its operations, this set is appropriate for most public and academic libraries. - Booklist
