Houdini BR
In this the first book ever written about the CIA's Office of Technical Service, former director Robert Wallace (a real-life Q, straight out of the James Bond films) and internationally renowned intelligence historian H. Keith Melton offer an unprecedented look at the CIA's most secretive operations and the devices that made them possible. Against a backdrop of geopolitical tensions — including the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the current War on Terror — the authors show how the CIA carries out its missions employing amazingly inventive tools. Illustrated with images never before seen by the public — and featuring everything from micro cameras to wired kitties to exploding pancakes— Spycraft is both a fantastic encyclopedia of gadgetry and a revealing primer on the fundamentals of high-tech espionage.
