Описание: From the 9/11 attacks to waterboarding to drone strikes, relations between the United States and the Middle East seem caught in a downward spiral. And all too often, the Central Intelligence Agency has made the situation worse. But this crisis was not a historical inevitabilityfar from it. Indeed, the earliest generation of CIA operatives was actually the region s staunchest western ally. In "America s Great Game," celebrated intelligence historian Hugh Wilford reveals the surprising history of the CIA s pro-Arab operations in the 1940s and 50s by tracing the work of the agency s three most influentialand colorfulofficers in the Middle East. Kermit Kim Roosevelt was the grandson of Theodore Roosevelt and the first head of CIA covert action in the region; his cousin, Archie Roosevelt, was a Middle East scholar and chief of the Beirut station. The two Roosevelts joined combined forces with Miles Copeland, a maverick covert operations specialist who had joined the American intelligence establishment during World War II. With their deep knowledge of Middle Eastern affairs, the three men were heirs to an American missionary tradition that engaged Arabs and Muslims with respect and empathy. Yet they were also fascinated by imperial intrigue, and were eager to play a modern rematch of the Great Game, the nineteenth-century struggle between Britain and Russia for control over central Asia. Despite their good intentions, these Arabists propped up authoritarian regimes, attempted secretly to sway public opinion in America against support for the new state of Israel, and staged coups that irrevocably destabilized the nations with which they empathized. Their efforts, and ultimate failure, would shape the course of U.S.Middle Eastern relations for decades to come. Based on a vast array of declassified government records, private papers, and personal interviews, "America s Great Game" tells the riveting story of the merry band of CIA officers whose spy games forever changed U.S. foreign policy.

Описание: In his classic text, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner John Noble Wilford recounts the history of cartography from antiquity to the space age. They are among the world's great pioneers and adventurers: the mapmakers who for centuries have been expanding our knowledge of who and where we are, and where we want to go. From the surprisingly accurate silk maps prepared by Chinese cartographers in the second century B.C., to medieval mapmakers who believed they had fixed the location of paradise, through to the expeditions of Columbus and Magellan, John Noble Wilford chronicles the exploits of the great pioneers of mapmaking. Wilford brings the story up to the present day as he shows the impact of new technologies that make it possible for cartographers to go where no one has been before, from the deepest reaches of the universe (where astronomers are mapping time as well as space) to the inside of the human brain. These modern-day mapmakers join the many earlier adventurers--including ancient Greek stargazers, Renaissance seafarers, and the explorers who mapped the American West--whose achievements shape this dramatic story of human inventiveness and limitless curiosity.
