The Great Game of espionage is a game of spies, sabotage, distortion, lies. But it is also about INFLUENCE?conveying the delusion of friendship and cooperation while influencing world events from within a foreign government. So it was that an internationally respected senior statesman serving in the highest levels of the FDR administration was actually Stalin?s asset. How did it happen, and?more imortantly?how can we keep it from happening again? INFLUENCE outlines both the motivation, machination, and consequence of a foreign power pulling the strings of a high American official. INFLUENCE is both a throroughly documented account of our failings, and our best hope to prevent a recurrance of history. Peter B. Niblo has been a member of the American intelligence service since 1950, when he was stationed in Cairo, Vienna and Tokyo. Later, as a Federal law enforcement officer, he served in San Francisco, Washington, Hong Kong and London.
