Here is Fletcher's classic essay on CIA subversion, long out of print, together with his controversial unpublished UNESCO paper on "The Free Flow of News - A case study in Government intervention". The cloak and dagger operations of America's Central Intelligence Agency are only a small part of its total activities. Most of its budget and personnel are devoted to the systematic collection of information - minute personal details about tens of thousands of politicians and political organisations in every country in the world, including Britain. And this data, stored in the worlds largest filing system at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, is used not only to aid Washington's policy-machine. But in active political intervention overseas - shaping the policies of political parties, making and un-making their leaders, boosting one international faction against another and often establishing rival break-away parties when other tactics fail...One of its targets in the years since the Second World War has been the British Labour Party.
