Opis produktu

In scenes eerily parallel to the culture of fear inspired by our current War on Terror A Need to Know explores the clandestine history of a CIA family defined and ultimately destroyed by their oath to keep toxic secrets during the Cold War. When Bud Goodalls father mysteriously died his inheritance consisted of three wellworn books: a Holy Bible The Great Gatsby and a diary. But they turned his life upside down. From the diary Goodall learned that his father had been a CIA operative during the height of the Cold War and the Bible and Gatsby had been his codebooks. Many unexplained facets of Buds childhood came into focus with this revelation.The high living in Rome and London. The bloodstained stiletto in his jewelry case. Bud as a child was always told he never had a need to know.Ł Or did he? Now as an adult and a university professor Goodall attempts to fill in the missing pieces of his Cold War childhood by uncovering a lifetime of family secrets. Who were his parents? What did his father do on those business trips when he was working for the government?Ł What betrayal turned a heroic career of national service into a nightmare of alcoholism depression and premature death for both of his parents? Slowly inexorably Goodall unearths the chilling secrets of a CIA family in A Need to Know. 2006 Best Book Award National Communication Association Ethnography Division
