"In 1992 the British Secret Intelligence Service exfiltrated from Russia a defector whose presence in the West has remained secret until the publication of this book. Vasili Mitrokhin worked for almost thirty years in the foreign intelligence archives of the KGB. In 1972 he was made responsible for moving these entire archives, including all the files on the KGB's deep-cover operatives, to new headquarters just outside Moscow. He was congratulated by the head of foreign intelligence, Vladimir Kryuchkov (later the ringleader of the 1991 Moscow coup), for his success in transferring the archives and his "irreproachable service to the state security authorities."" "Unknown to Kryuchkov, however, Mitrokhin spent over a decade making notes and transcripts of these highly classified files which, at enormous personal risk, he smuggled daily out of the archives and kept beneath his dacha floor." "This first volume of The Mitrokhin Archive gives an extraordinary insight into the KGB's penetration of the West, its secret links with Western communist parties, its covert role in maintaining the Soviet empire in Eastern Europe, and its brutal war against dissidents inside and outside the Soviet Union, all of which wer on a sccale and of a variety wich we have never previously realized."--Jacket
KGB lexicon : the Soviet intelligence officer's handbook by Vasili Mitrokhin( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This publication marks a new departure for this extraordinary man, now approaching his 80s. He remains as determined as ever to bring home to the world the extent of Soviet espionage in the West and beyond and, most importantly, the abuses of power - indeed the criminality - practised in the former Soviet Union by the ruling Communist party primarily through the medium of the KGB, so that they should never re-occur." "In this volume Mitrokhin presents two dictionaries produced by the KGB itself to define its activities in both offensive and defensive intelligence work. The translated documents tell the basic story of the KGB's methods and targets and will be of interest to the general public as well as to the specialist."--Jacket

"When former KGB officer Vasili Mitrokhin defected to Britain he brought with him what the FBI described as 'the most complete and extensive intelligence ever received from any source'. The first resulting book, The Mitrokhin Archive: The KGB in Europe and the West, created a media storm. But it told only part of the story. Now The Mitrokhin Archive II: The KGB and the World reveals for the first time the full extent of the KGB's global penetration, exposing its operations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East."--Jacket
