From dust jacket: The Central Intelligence Agency shows the importance of the agency and its various methods of gathering information. The history of intelligence and William Donovan's mysterious travels before World War II introduce the book and place the CIA in a historical context. Using hundreds of photographs, maps, charts, and interviews -- many published here for the first time -- the history of America's preeminent intelligence agency and its methods of collecting intellegence are chronicled and detailed. It examines the use of intelligence in the New World, early American intelligence history, and Wild Bill Donovan and OSS operations. It details the functions of the CIA...by discussing what the agency does and does not do and what its charter states are its functions and responsibilities, and by giving a detailed breakdown, department by department, of the agency's organization and structure. Special emphasis is paid to the Directorate of Operations, the arm of the CIA responsible for conducting espionage and covert actions...

4 Schechter, Betty. The Dreyfus Affair: A National Scandal. Illustrated with Photographs.
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, [1965]. First Edition, First Printing, As Stated. 
Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), 264 pp. Near-Fine, with light speckling (age darkened spotting) to top foredge, in a Very Good+ dust jacket with light soiling and slightly darkened spine. “This vivid account of the Dreyfus Affair often reads like a cloak-and-dagger mystery, for the bare facts of Dreyfus's case seem almost too melodramatic to be true. But at the same time, it provides a chilling example of what can happen when justice and the safeguards of proper legal procedure are sacrificed to some presumed honor or security. Although the scene of the Dreyfus Affair was France, the lessons it taught were not peculiarly French; they have meaning for all men who put the rights of the individual above those of society.”
