"This remarkable book will change the way you look at intelligence, foreign affairs, the press, and much else besides." – R. James Woolsey, former director of US Central Intelligence Agency

A quarter-century ago, the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official ever to defect to the West, Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, exposed the massive crimes and corruption of his former boss, Romanian President Nicolae Ceauşescu, giving the dictator a nervous breakdown and inspiring him to send assassination squads to the U.S. to find his former spy chief and kill him. They failed. And now Pacepa takes aim at an even bigger target: the exotic, widely misunderstood but still astonishingly influential realm of the Russian-born "science” of disinformation. Pacepa and his co-author, historian and University of Mississippi School of law professor Ronald Rychlak, reveal some of the most consequential yet largely unknown disinformation campaigns of our lifetime inDisinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion and Promoting Terrorism. Join Rychlak (Pacepa lives under a protective identity and does not make public appearances) for a discussion of key cases such as the transformation of Pope Pius XII from a wartime hero into a Nazi sympathizer, the spread of anti-Semitism in the Middle East, and the Kremlin’s cultivation of modern terrorism. We will also screen highlights from the documentary Disinformation: The Secret Strategy to Destroy the West.
