343 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H). B&w photographs. "Dirty tricks - actions carried out surreptitiously to inflict damage - are the lifeblood of the secrets world and have a far greater impact on the lives of ordinary people than commonly imagined. From the MI5 plot against Wilson to the Iraqi oil-pipe super-gun, 'dirty tricks' have recently dominated the headlines: and in the exciting new era of East-West relations they are a growth industry. The Wilson years were a piping period for dirty tricks, both real and imagined, but the Thatcher reign is also having its share: since Gorbachev came to power the KGB's dirty tricks department has never been so active. In his long career Chapman Pincher has been associated with many dirty tricks and confesses to deliberate involvement in some of them. His latest book is an up-to-date study of the activities of master dirty tricksters from Wilson's 'Rasputin', through Peter Wright and Sir Maurice Oldfield to Gorbachev's army of 'techno-bandits', now using every underhand ruse to secure the Western technology which the Kremlin so desperately needs. It ranges through assassinations, character assassinations, defectors who never were, blackmail through sex, betrayals and deceptions of staggering ingenuity. With access to documents and new information Chapman Pincher is able to reveal the real truth about the Wallace Affair, the plot against Lord Rothschild, and a score of other mysteries. Examining the impact of the new East-West situation on the world's secret services he explains why dirty tricks will continue to prosper and exert their impact on history."
