.This fascinating account of how two young Americans turned traitor during the Cold War is an "absolutely smashing real-life spy story" (The New York Times Book Review). At the height of the Cold War, some of the nation's most precious secrets passed through a CIA contractor in Southern California. Only a handful of employees were cleared to handle the intelligence that came through the Black Vault. One of them was Christopher John Boyce, a hard-partying genius with a sky-high IQ, a passion for falconry, and little love for his country. Security at the Vault was so lax, Boyce couldn't help but be tempted. And when he gave in, the fate of the free world would hang in the balance. With the help of his best friend, Andrew Daulton Lee, a drug dealer with connections south of the border, Boyce began stealing classified documents and selling them to the Soviet embassy in Mexico City. It was an audacious act of treason, committed by two spoiled young men who were nearly always drunk, stoned, or both-and were about to find themselves caught in the middle of a fight between the CIA and the KGB. This Edgar Award-winning book was the inspiration for the critically acclaimed film starring Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn-a true story as thrilling as any dreamed up by Ian Fleming or John le Carre. Before Edward Snowden, there were Boyce and Lee, two of the most unlikely spies in the history of the Cold War.

7 The Fifties : The Way We Really Were
Douglas T Miller; Marion Nowak 1977 Doubleday & Co. Hard Cover. Very Good. No Jacket. 0385112483 / 9780385112482. 
Come back with us to those thrilling days of yesteryear, to the days of bobby sox, soda fountains, Elvis Presley and American Bandstand, hot rods and James Dean. But come back, too, to the "fabulous era" remembered less nostalgically as "a moral disaster" and "one of the worst decades in the history of man." Here is the first in-depth social and cultural history of the fifties: the decade that brought America the anticommunist hysteria of the McCarthy hearings, the Cold War and bomb shelters, "I Like Ike" and "I Love Lucy," quiz show scandals, the Korean War, Richard Nixon's Checkers speech, "the man in the gray flannel suit" arid the Beat Generation, Norman Vincent Peale, Mickey Spillane and Marilyn Monroe, rock and roll, the Kinsey Report, and an ugly racial confrontation at a high school in Little Rock. It was a decade that began in prosperity and national faith and ended in doubt, uneasiness, and a yearning for change. A generation in which the proliferation of TVs, suburbs, and automobiles radically changed the way we lived and the way we thought. An era in which the corruption and waste of "the affluent society" was beginning to mushroom. A period in which consensus was the highest goal and nonconformity the greatest sin, but in which the revolutionary ideas of the sixties were already simmering beneath the surface of conventional morality. In short, a decade that has much to tell us about how we got to be what we are today. After years of research, the authors have written an angry, funny, and insightful book that puts into perspective the contradictions of this critical period in our nation's recent past.--Adapted from book jacket. Surveys the social, cultural, and political history of the United States during the decade of the 1950's.
