Tiger trap : America's secret spy war with China

David Wise.

In the Cold War between the US and Soviet Union, little attention was paid to the espionage operations of China as a rising world power. In a narrative as riveting and sex scandal-ridden as any spy thriller, Wise (Spy: The Inside Story of How the FBI's Robert Hanssen Betrayed America) relates the inside story of how Chinese intelligence stole secrets about America's weapons systems. In an update, he discusses the cyberattacks that prompted Google to opt out of China. Photos include figures in the FBI "Tiger Trap" case implicating a former nuclear engineer.
