In essays ranging from the exploits of 'Wild Bill' Donovan's OSS during World War II, through the CIA's cold war struggles with its KGB adversary, the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and the Kennedy assassination, to the Aldrich Ames scandal, Thomas Powers argues the American government and public have both lost their innocence about the role of intelligence-gathering in international affairs and sheds informed doubts on whether the CIA can really defend America against terrorism.
