Today, still living undercover in the United States, the man credited by the CIA as the only person in the Western world who single-handedly demolished an entire enemy espionage service - the one he himself managed - takes aim at an even bigger target: the exotic, widely misunderstood but still astonishingly influential realm of the Russian-born "science" of disinformation. Indeed, within this audiobook, Pacepa, along with his co-author, historian and law professor Ronald Rychlak, expose some of the most consequential yet largely unknown disinformation campaigns of our lifetime.

Open your eyes!
I have read/listened to approx. 35 nonfiction (and almost the same in fiction) books on WW2 and it's aftermath, and the opinion of the Pope's behavior during the war is almost never favorable. Imagine my surprise to find out what might have been going on behind the scenes. Only one of the examples of disinformation. Brought up to the present day the examples pile up. In the US we are so naïve in our own lives, we can't imagine paranoia on the scale of the soviet block, its a wonder that we are still here. Can you imagine what your friends would say if you tried to point out that this news story or that is a Russian conspiracy? Be vigilant, but not paranoid (McCarthy may have been right, but his behavior and his misuse of power was wrong). This book will change the way you think about our history. Google the author for more interesting information.
PS, never confuse crazy governments with the incredible citizens who are forced to live under them. When you meet them, remember what kind of world they live(d) in. Call the police and you may be calling the criminals themselves, imagine having not recourse to justice anywhere.

Politics & history will never look the same again
Eye opening. Revelatory. Explanatory. Disturbing. Transformational.
The Russian's "Science of Disinformation" has had a horrible impact on modern history and is still in use today by Russian and American politicians alike. Chapters 41 and 42 talk about modern politicians' use of Disinformation, such as Obama and Pelosi.
You will never see historical and current events the same way again.
Once you know it's a game, you can no longer be a participant.
