Inhaltsangabe: Please include this as the description: "On May 1, 1960, the news that the Soviet Union had downed a CIA high-altitude spy plane added the names “U-2” and “Francis Gary Powers” to the convoluted narrative of Cold War espionage. Yet this celebrated episode was only one aspect of an extraordinary history of covert, high-tech intrusion of secret U.S. aircraft into other nations’ air space worldwide. Now, The Central Intelligence Agency and Overhead Reconnaissance: The U-2 and Oxcart Programs offers an official, comprehensive, and authoritative history of this manned overhead reconnaissance program. Long classified, it describes not only the program's technological and bureaucratic aspects, but also its political and international context. The book begins by carefully documenting the origins of the U-2, the top-secret testing of the plane, its specially designed high-altitude cameras and complex life-support systems, and even the suggested use of potassium cyanide capsules by the pilots if captured (it was up to each pilot to decide if he wanted to take one with him?some did, most did not). Once operational, its flight over the USSR in July 1956 immediately made the U-2 the most important source of intelligence on the Soviet Union, but its use against the Soviet target for which it was designed produced a persistent tension between its program managers and President Eisenhower, with the former much more eager to expand its use and the latter going along only reluctantly. After the 1960 U-2 incident and the capture of pilot Gary Francis Powers, the President forbade any further U-2 flights over the USSR. This was hardly the end of the U-2’s participation in the Cold War. From the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban missile crisis to the skies of Laos and North Vietnam, the U-2 provided the same top-secret intelligence data as it had in the 1950s on revolts in Indonesia and Tibet. Even after the end of the U-2 era, the CIA attempted to continue its work via the Oxcart project?the A-12 surveillance aircraft?until fiscal pressures and CIA-Air Force rivalry caused its demise. Based upon both full access to CIA records and extensive classified interviews of its participants, along with maps, drawings, and low-resolution photographs, this important study provides an engrossing and timely look into the development and implementation of a top-secret U.S. intelligence effort, its technological wizardry, notable accomplishments?and the worldwide negative repercussions when it was revealed. Both fascinating history and cautionary tale, The Central Intelligence Agency and Overhead Reconnaissance will be of immense interest to students of military aviation, intelligence operations, international relations, history of the Cold War."

From the Author: This is probably a reprint of the 2013 CIA release, which has the advantage of fewer deletions than the first one from 1998, but the maps and photos remain virtually unreadable because all you are getting is a print of a low-resolution PDF file.  In 2016 Skyhorse Publishing brought out a much more complete version of this 2013 release with the entire text typeset for clear reading, new photos provided by U-2 expert Chris Pocock, plus a new introduction by me as the original co-author and by Chris Pocock.  Unless you are really trying to save money, my recommendation is to get the 2016 version of the book.  Be careful, because amazon's "What's Inside" preview gives you a link to the Skyhorse contents even though that is not what you get (there is a small message saying you will get the 2013 version).  By the way, I don't receive any royalties from any of the editions of this book (US government books have no copyright), but to me the Skyhorse Publishing 2016 edition is definitely the one to read, not the poor-quality reprints of the CIA PDF, especially not the heavily redacted 1998 release.Dr. Gregory W. Pedlow, co-author
