Product Description

During the Cold War, writers and artists were faced with a huge challenge. In the Soviet world, they were expected to turn out works that glorified militancy, struggle and relentless optimism. In the West, freedom of expression was vaunted as liberal democracy's most cherished possession. But such freedom could carry a cost. This book documents the extraordinary energy of a secret campaign in which some of the most vocal exponents of intellectual freedom in the West became instruments - whether they knew it or not, whether they liked it or not - of America's secret service.

Frances Stonor Saunders is the author of the best-selling Who Paid the Piper?a cultural history of the Cold War that has been translated into ten languages and was awarded the Royal Historical Society's Gladstone Memorial Prize. Her writing has appeared in the Guardian, the New Statesman and Areté. She lives in London.
