The Ghosts of Langley (Hardback)

John Prados


THE GHOSTS OF LANGLEY is the story of spymasters, their minions, and the ways in which the Central Intelligence Agency changed the world we see. This is a story of determined men and women who believed in their mission, followed White House orders, and sometimes made them up. It is also a story of some brave reformers who attempted to change the CIA's culture but were swept under the rug, or worse, converted to the dark side. THE GHOSTS OF LANGLEY uses profiles of key figures in CIA history as a lens to detail the history of American intelligence and the ways that actions undertaken by the CIA agents in all their facets helped create the situation America now faces, taking into account not only covert operations, but intelligence analysis, technological discoveries and more. John Prados reaches into areas that have never before been explored in books on the agency, including how its lawyers helped define the parameters of accountability for U.S. intelligence and the ways in which covert operations are conducted and revealed.
