Provides crucial evidence that this action was, in fact, the realization of a longstanding plan. Reveals the explosive strategic reasons why the island was divided, saving its top-secret defence and spying facilities from communist take-over or British defence spending cuts. Makes a crucial contribution to our understanding of great power politics and the strategic importance of intelligence gathering and the role these played in triggering one of the world's most intractable international conflicts. Includes black and white photographs and a 1999 personal interview conducted with Kissinger for this book. Appears unread. Book clean and unmarked with no wear. Light signs of handling to dust jacket. Excellent copy.
