The "disappearance of the [communist] menace leaves the CIA without a cause.... Then why not abolish the CIA?... [A]s Truman understood, we still need an intelligence agency -- a centralized, vigilant agency.... So what should be done with the CIA?" Braden asked that question of Clark Clifford, Richard Helms, William Colby, and Ray Cline. "These men ... agree ... on two things: The CIA should remain in business, and its chief business should be intelligence.... At the end of World War II, Bill Donovan was very good at rapid change.... My hope is that Robert Gates, even without a cause, will be good at changing too."

Legvold, FA 83.3 (May-Jun. 2014), finds that the author "exposes in riveting fashion how the Soviet Spy network worked and how it flummoxed the FBI, which was very slow to catch on."
