In Spymaster's Prism the legendary former spymaster Jack
Devine details the unending struggle with Russia and its
intelligence agencies as it works against our national security.
Devine tells this story through the unique perspective of a
seasoned CIA professional who served more than three decades, some
at the highest levels of the agency. He uses his gimlet-eyed view
to walk us through the fascinating spy cases and covert action
activities of Russia, not only through the Cold War past but up to
and including its interference in the Trump era. Devine also looks
over the horizon to see what lies ahead in this struggle and
provides prescriptions for the future. Based on personal experience
and exhaustive research, Devine builds a vivid and complex mosaic
that illustrates how Russia's intelligence activities have
continued uninterrupted throughout modern history, using
fundamentally identical policies and techniques to undermine our
democracy. He shows in stark terms how intelligence has been
modernized and weaponized through the power of the cyber world.
Devine presents his analysis using clear-eyed vision and a
repertoire of better-than-fiction spy stories, giving us an
objective, riveting, and candid take on U.S.-Russia relations. He
offers key lessons from our intelligence successes and failures
over the past seventy-five years that will help us determine how to
address our current strategic shortfall, emerge ahead of the
Russians, and be prepared for what's to come from any adversary.
