With vivid storytelling and riveting insider accounts, Weiner traces the roots of political warfare the conflict America and Russia have waged with espionage, sabotage, diplomacy and disinformation from 1945 until 2020. America won the cold war, but Russia is winning today. Vladimir Putin helped to put his chosen candidate in the White House with a covert campaign that continues to this moment. Putin’s Russia has revived Soviet-era intelligence operations gaining ever more potent information from and influence over the American people and government. Yet the US has put little power into its defense. This has put American democracy in peril.
