Great History Lessson  August 15, 2011
by


This is a really insightful textbook; I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in 20th century history. History is too often viewed by non-historians as a chronology of inevitable events. Reading this textbook made it all seem up in the air and unfolding before my eyes. I would rate the seller 5 stars and I plan to buy from ecampus again in the future.






For the President's Eyes Only : Secret Intelligence and the American Presidency from Washington to Bush: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

From the co-author of KGB: The Inside Story and an acknowledged authority on the subject comes "the most important book ever written about American intelligence."--David Kahn, author of The Codebreakers and Hitler's Spies
