About this title


Before joining the New York Times in 1997, Weiser worked for the Washington Post for 18 years. In 1992, while at the Post , Weiser published two articles on Ryszard Kuklinski (1930- ), a former Polish official who was a crucial source of information for the West in a nine-year, clandestine operation leading to dramatic changes in Poland in the 1980s. Recently, in an unusual arrangement with the CIA, Weiser was granted access to the agency's internal files on the operation. He draws upon the detailed information gained from those files and from additional interviews with Kuklinski now living in the U.S. to create this full, book length account of Kuklinski's covert activities.
