The National Security Agency (NSA) is the largest intelligence gathering agency in the world. James Banford in his sequel to "The Puzzle Palace" draws on newly released government documents and interviews with past and present personel to give a detailed picture of the agency. Tracing its origins from the Truman admisnistration and using examples from modern day incidents (Gary Powers, the Pueblo, the Israeli attack on a U.S. surveillance ship and many more) he provides us with an overview of the murky and dangerous world of intelligence operations.
