Staff Reviews


Lansdale was the CIA agent who during the 1950s helped save the Philippines from the Communist menace. A patriot with tremendous sensitivity to foreign cultures, his counter-insurgency strategy came unraveled in Vietnam. In this fascinating biography, Boot mines the life and work of a spy to see how his ideas still have relevance to American foreign policy. It's a book that deserves to be read by anybody interested in our place in the world.

— Charles Bottomley
