9780810849426: Historical Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Intelligence (Historical Dictionaries of Intelligence and Counterintelligence)

At its peak, the KGB (Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti) was the largest secret police and espionage organization in the world. It became so influential in Soviet politics that several of its directors moved on to become premiers of the Soviet Union. In fact, Russian president Vladimir V. Putin is a former head of the KGB. The GRU (Glavnoye Razvedyvatelnoe Upravlenie) is the principal intelligence unit of the Russian armed forces, having been established in 1920 by Leon Trotsky during the Russian civil war. The GRU was the first subordinate to the KGB, and while the KGB broke up with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the GRU remains intact, cohesive, highly efficient, and with far greater resources than its civilian counterparts.

These are just two of the long list of Russian and Soviet intelligence agencies that are covered in the Historical Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Intelligence. Through a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on organizations like the Oprichnina, Okhrana, GPU, NKVD, KGB, GRU, Smersh, SVR, and FSB, a clear picture of the history of this subject is presented. Entries also cover Soviet and Russian leaders, leading intelligence and security officers, the Lenin and Stalin purges, the Gulag, and noted espionage cases.

About the Author:

Robert W. Pringle is a veteran of 25 years service with the Department of State and the Central Intelligence Agency. From 1998 to 2004 Pringle taught history and political science courses at the University of Kentucky's Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce.

From Booklist:

This entry in the publisher's Historical Dictionaries on Intelligence and Counterintelligence series delves into the culture and alphabet soup of Russian and Soviet Union intelligence. Former CIA analyst and academic Pringle has done a masterful job of sorting out and describing the world of intelligence, its key participants, and the importance that intelligence has played in Russian and Soviet history from the founding of the first Russian secret service in 1564 to the Putin presidency. Countries that were allies of the Soviet Union, such as East Germany, are also given entries.

Almost as important as the dictionary itself are the chronology of intelligence and the introduction at the beginning of the book. These, along with entries such as Tradecraft ("the art or science of spying") and enona (the code name for the decryption of several thousand Russian intelligence messages in the late 1940s), will give the reader a rudimentary knowledge of how the country ran its sophisticated, deeply entrenched intelligence "business."

Entries are a few sentences to a half page or page in length. See alsoreferences are noted in bold type. Although only 300 entries make up the dictionary portion of the work, it is chock-full of key as well as lesser-known operations, people, and agency information. The information on defectors during the cold war era as well as the numerous double agents and operations is surprising. Key cases, such as those of Igor Gouzenko, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and John Walker, are discussed. The 35-page bibliography is a resource worthy of academics and a useful jumping-off point for those wanting more in-depth information in any number of areas of Russian and Soviet intelligence history.

This is a must for those interested in this subject as well as for universities with programs in Soviet or Russian studies. Terri Tomchyshyn
