9780818404191: On the Run

In 1974 Philip Agee achieved instant international notoriety. He had quit the Central Intelligence Agency three years earlier and later published an expose, "Inside the Company", which blew the cover on the forces behind dozens of political and social upheavals and counter-revolutions around the world. From the day he left the CIA, Philip Agee was marked by it as an enemy: hunted, arrested, threatened, expelled from country after country (often illegally) and sometimes prosecuted. In 1977, after living in Britain for almost five years, he was refused an extension of his visitor's permit and forced to leave the country "in the interests of national security". In 1979 Agee's US passport was revoked. In this book, Agee tells the story of the events and feelings that led him to leave the CIA and of his struggles to survive while writing "Inside the Company" and after it was published. His growing sense of outrage at the CIA's covert interference in nations whose attmepts at social and political reconstruction Agee increasingly admired, coupled with his brave attempts to redress the balance through exposure of CIA agents and actions in Europe, Africa and South America are described here.

From Publishers Weekly:

Agee notes that someone recently asked him why the CIA hadn't "done something" to him. His answer ("Ah, but they have") is elaborated in painful detail in this autobiography. Agee, a CIA operations officer from 1957 to 1968, resigned in disgust over the agency's connection with political repression in South America and wrote Inside the Company: CIA Diary, an expose that caused an international uproar, the echoes of which still reverberate. Here he recounts how he came to join the CIA, his growing disenchantment, the influence of the Cuban revolution on his decision to write Inside the Company and his anxiety-filled life of harassment and exile ever since. Charges that the agency has attempted to discredit himaccusing him of being a traitor, a drunk, a womanizer, a mental caseare backed up with details. It is an ugly story filled with emotion and suspense, and Agee makes no bones about his continued obsession with exposing questionable CIA activities and personnel. His U.S. passport revoked in 1979, Agee now lives in West Germany. 30,000 first printing; major ad/promo.

From Library Journal:

Agee, author of Inside the Company: CIA Diary (1975) and other books exposing and denouncing the Central Intelligence Agency, his former employer, has written a political autobiography detailing his life after leaving the Agency. Now living (somewhat surprisingly) in West Germany, Agee has been expelled from five NATO countries and had his U.S. passport revoked in 1979. In return, he has been relentless in his anti-CIA crusade and his revelations were largely responsible for the law that makes it a crime to publish names of undercover CIA agents. With the flavor of both a spy thriller and an anti-imperialist polemic, On the Run is timely and will appeal to the audience that read his earlier books. Recommended. Gregor A.
