The CIA's Secret War in Tibet


Product Description
Product Details


Conboy and Morrison do a wonderful job of weaving an intricate maze of details within the wider perspective of CIA's operations in China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Laos, in retelling a story very few know about."-The Tibet Journal

"This is a work that makes the reader sit up and take notice. In the hands of Conboy and Morrison, the broader story of the U.S.-backed operation that lasted into the 1970s is engaging as well as important. The tale of Tibet still stands as a salutary warning of the dilemmas of secret and not-so-secret wars."-International History Review

"A superb case study on intelligence that will stand the test of time."-Journal of Military History

"An important story and one that is well told."-Journal of Asian Studies

"The inside story of one of the CIA's most tragic covert operations. Agency officers in the Wild East; nationalist, religious, and ethnic conflict-this is the stuff of a great yarn, which the authors tell in engaging detail."-John Prados, author of Presidents' Secret Wars: CIA and Pentagon Covert Operations from World War II Through the Persian Gulf

"A masterful account of how the CIA sought to play the `new great game' on the roof of the world."-David F. Rudgers, author of Creating the Secret State: Origins of the Central Intelligence Agency, 1943-1947

"An excellent and impressive study of a major CIA covert operation during the Cold War."-William M. Leary, author of Perilous Missions: Civil Air Transport and CIA Covert Operations in Asia
