In the post-World War II era, the Soviet Union and the United States wanted to gain an advantage over one another in the international security environment. To do so, both engaged in a variety of intelligence-gathering strategies—some of which involved espionage. This single-volume work provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of the evolution of the espionage game during the Cold War and in the post-Cold War security environment.
