Publisher Comments:

"In this accessibly written book, Washington author Joseph C. Goulden illuminates and defines much of the standard jargon of the intelligence community with refreshing asides about many of spying's urban legends." — The Washington Times
What's a black bag job, a dead-letter drop, a honey trap? Who invented the microdot, and why do they call Green Berets "snake-eaters"? More than just an alphabetical series of definitions, this volume offers a fascinating insider's view of the lingo and operations of the CIA and the FBI, MI5 and MI6, Mossad, the KGB, and other top-secret organizations.

A compelling overview of the world of espionage from World War II to the present, this reference was assembled by a former intelligence operative. Loaded with anecdotal incidents that provide entertainment as well as information, it offers page-turning excitement from the clandestine world of spies and spying. A new Foreword by Peter Earnest, executive director of the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC, presents up-to-date insights.

Synopsis:

What's a black bag job, a dead-letter drop, a honey trap?  Fascinating, readable presentation of definitions defines the lingo and operations of the CIA, MI5, Mossad, the KGB, and other top-secret organizations.
