Tiger Trap: America's Secret Spy War With China
Joseph C. Goulden, the author of several fine nonfiction books, including The Death Merchant, wrote an interesting review of David Wise's Tiger Trap: America's Spy War With China in the Washington Times.
David Wise, who has been writing about intelligence since the early 1960s and is, in my view, the best in the business, now turns his considerable talent to a little-noted facet of the espionage wars: the ongoing campaign by the People's Republic of China to steal U.S. nuclear-weaponry secrets. For years, of course, Soviet spying spawned movies, best-selling books and incessant publicity elsewhere. But since the collapse of the Soviet Union, China has become “America’s chief rival” in the intelligence wars and has scored many signal and unheralded successes.
