228 pp, 9 1/2" H. "(A)s military connections between Canada and the U.S. grow ever closer, urgent questions have arisen: do the CIA and other American intelligence organizations manipulate our Canadian intelligence services? How much national autonomy do our intelligence agencies really have? These disturbing questions were brought to (the author's) attention in conversations with authorities at the highest levels of government. Over the last six years he has conducted his investigation through interviews with key players in the RCMP, the new Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), and other branches of both the Canadian and the U.S. governments. Many of them spoke to him with surprising frankness. Here, Littleton exposes the unwritten, secret agreements that exist among the Canadian intelligence services, the CIA and other Western intelligence agencies - without the full knowledge of our top government officials. He reveals how the intelligence services were part of the American attempt to implicate Lester Pearson as a Soviet spy, the dramatic increase in the power of the Canadian intelligence services since the end of the Second World War, and the efforts of the Diefenbaker, Pearson and Trudeau governments to come to grips with U.S. demands to use Canada as a strategic military zone between the two superpowers. As the cold war escalates, so does the pressure on Canad to accommodate Star Wars, Cruise missile testings, and other schemes that require the use of Canadian territory. (This) is a fascinating, disturbing account of how, in the family of the Western intelligence network, the closely linked interests of the secret services are sometimes placed before the welfare of Canada." A few tiny bumps to fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, three tiny scuffs.
