(Thomas Dunne Books)

In this primer on espionage, the author traces the careers and pitfalls of infamous spies such as Robert Hanssen and Aldrich Ames and examines why spying produced useful information during the Cold War but has been less successful in the war on terrorism. Hitz offers ideas to reform intelligence operations against terrorist targets. A former inspector general of the CIA, Hitz teaches at the University of Virginia’s law school and politics department.
