WATERSTONES NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH AUGUST 2018 AND A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'An astonishingly detailed picture of espionage in the 1980s, written with pacey journalistic verve and an eerily contemporary feel.' Ben Macintyre, The Times ‘A gripping story of courage, professionalism, and betrayal in the secret world.’ Rodric Braithwaite, British Ambassador in Moscow, 1988-1992 ‘One of the best spy stories to come out of the Cold War and all the more riveting for being true.’ Washington Post January, 1977. While the chief of the CIA’s Moscow station fills his gas tank, a stranger drops a note into the car. In the years that followed, that stranger, Adolf Tolkachev, became one of the West’s most valuable spies. At enormous risk Tolkachev and his handlers conducted clandestine meetings across Moscow, using spy cameras, props, and private codes to elude the KGB in its own backyard – until a shocking betrayal put them all at risk. Drawing on previously classified CIA documents and interviews with first-hand participants, The Billion Dollar Spy is a brilliant feat of reporting and a riveting true story from the final years of the Cold War.

Warning: This is an independent addition to The Billion Dollar Spy, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. In The Billion Dollar Spy, David E. Hoffman details the account of a spy in the Cold War so valuable, the United States would risk everything to keep him. It's a true story, but it reads like a screenplay written for Leonardo DiCaprio. The story undulates as tensions rise and fall and Hoffman gives his readers the one-two punch just as the details start coming into focus. This story takes place in Moscow over the course of eight years. It begins with the CIA's difficulty gaining traction against the Soviet Union in the Cold War. Soon enough, however, they find what they were looking for in a seemingly ordinary Soviet engineer. This man didn't open doors for the United States, he blew holes in the foundation. It was his Intel that cost the Soviet Union years of research and saved the United States an almost immeasurable amount of money. This summary can be consumed alongside Hoffman's novel, or it can be read on its own. It is intended to tell the story, but mainly to be a sidecar to Hoffman's hard work. This summary will provide clear and detailed character summary as well as a breakdown of literary elements and themes in the novel. Available on PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device.

The Billion Dollar Spy: by David E. Hoffman | Summary & Analysis Preview: The Billion Dollar Spy: A True Story of Cold War Espionage and Betrayal by David E. Hoffman chronicles the six year relationship between the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and engineer, Adolf Tolkachev, who spied on the Soviet Union for the United States. Tolkachev was the most productive CIA spies during the Cold War, persistent in his undertakings to ensure the undoing of the Soviet Union’s aviation developments, which he personally had a hand in. He was allegedly betrayed by a disgruntled former CIA agent who gave his identity to the Soviet secret police, the Komitet Gosudarstvennoi Bezopasnosti (KGB). While the CIA was largely meant for intelligence analysis at its outset, troubles with the Soviet Union caused the CIA to expand into espionage and covert operations. However, it was difficult to run spy operations within the Soviet Union itself because of heightened national security and suspicion. For these reasons, the CIA had trouble… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

THE TRUE STORY THAT INSPIRED THE NETFLIX FILM THE RED SEA DIVING RESORT. In the early 1980s on a remote part of the Sudanese coast, a new luxury holiday resort opened for business. Catering for divers, it attracted guests from around the world. Little did the holidaymakers know that the staff were undercover spies, working for the Mossad – the Israeli secret service. Providing a front for covert night-time activities, the holiday village allowed the agents to carry out an operation unlike any seen before. What began with one cryptic message pleading for help, turned into the secret evacuation of thousands of Ethiopian Jews who had been languishing in refugee camps, and the spiriting of them to Israel. Written in collaboration with operatives involved in the mission, endorsed as the definitive account and including an afterword from the commander who went on to become the head of the Mossad, this is the complete, never-before-heard, gripping tale of a top-secret and often hazardous operation.

A fresh assessment of the neoliberal political economy behind Canadian foreign policy from Afghanistan to Haiti, Joining Empire establishes Jerome Klassen as one of the most astute analysts of contemporary Canadian foreign policy and its relationship to US global power. Using empirical data on production, trade, investment, profits, and foreign ownership in Canada, as well as a new analysis of the overlap among the boards of directors of the top 250 firms in Canada and the top 500 firms worldwide, Klassen argues that it is the increasing integration of Canadian businesses into the global economy that drives Canada’s new, increasingly aggressive, foreign policy. Using government documents, think tank studies, media reports, and interviews with business leaders from across Canada, Klassen outlines recent systematic changes in Canadian diplomatic and military policy and connects them with the rise of a new transnational capitalist class. Joining Empire is sure to become a classic of Canadian political economy.
