Kessler, Ronald:  Moscow station : how the KGB penetrated the American Embassy
Book Number: 28498
New York Scribner 1989 8vo hardcover 305pp index, b/w illus. very good, spine slightly slantes / very good d/w. From Library Journal: This is all you wanted to know about the lurid Marine, spy, and sex scandal that has recently rocked the American embassy in Moscow. After the antics of the poor, young, single, not-too-bright, and not-well-trained Marines sent to guard the Embassy, the Marine motto of semper fidelis ("always faithful") just won't be the same. Critics have said that Kessler, author of Spy Versus Spy (LJ 9/1/88), theorizes beyond his evidence. But that is not the central point. The description of the laxity about security, the demoralizing conditions of the Marines and embassy staff, and the dimwitted Washington bureaucracies in charge of these things is the real story, and on hearing it one doesn't know whether to laugh at the Get Smart atmosphere or to cry. A neat if somewhat padded expose.

Book Number: 50290
Institute for Research 2007 8vo softcover 198pp index, b/w illus. very good. FOREIGN AGENTS analyzes the history and activities of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. FOREIGN AGENTS begins with testimony and subpoenaed documents from the 1963 Senate investigation into the activities of the agents of foreign principals. Senator J.W. Fulbright's discovery of "conduit" money-laundering operations in the US financed by Israeli principals touched off deep and important questions about US lobbying on behalf of the fledgling nation and the applicability of laws such as the Foreign Agents Registration Act and the Logan Act. The book then uncovers AIPAC election law skirmishes in the 1980s-1990s, analyzing the lobby's role in establishing and coordinating political action committees and AIPAC's role in alleged election law violations.
