Special tasks : the memoirs of an unwanted witness, a Soviet spymaster by Pavel Sudoplatov( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to KGB archives, Pavel Sudoplatov directed the secretive Administration for Special Tasks. This department was responsible for kidnapping, assassination, sabotage, and guerrilla warfare during World War II; it also set up illegal networks in the United States and Western Europe, and, most crucially, carried out atomic espionage in the United States, great Britain, and Canada. Sudoplatov served the KGB for over fifty years, at one point controlling more than twenty thousand guerrillas, moles, and spies. But his involvement with the most nefarious Soviet activities - and the rulers who ordered them - made Sudoplatov an unwanted witness, and he was arrested in 1953 after Beria's fall. Despite torture and solitary confinement he refused to "confess," disavowing any criminal actions. He spent fifteen years in prison, then struggled two decades more for rehabilitation. Special Tasks is an astonishing memoir and a singular historical document of a man who knew and did too much for the Soviet empire

12 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Soviet military had been stalled by the fact that his father had fought against the Bolsheviks during the 1917 Revolution, and he was obsessed by this legacy, which made him suspect in the U.S.S.R. For the CIA and MI6, Penkovsky was the ultimate inside source; his access to military secrets was unparalleled and his devotion to serving the West was unlimited. No other work has detailed in such spellbinding fashion exactly how the CIA "runs" its agents - or how
Russian negotiating behavior : continuity and transition by Jerrold L Schecter( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As he examines the historical and cultural underpinnings of contemporary Russian negotiating behavior, Schecter finds that the Bolshevik legacy remains largely intact despite the Soviet Union's demise. A step-by-step examination of the negotiating process, based on unique inside accounts from retired Soviet officials, exposes the areas of greatest continuity in Russian interests and style, as well as areas of change. Russian Negotiating Behavior also identifies counterstrategies that western negotiators can use to protect their interests, and it outlines the requirements for doing business in Russia's nascent market economy
