Fair Play: The Moral Dilemmas of Spying (Potomac Books, 2006)

From the archives: Should countries spy on each other? Should our government spy on us? We examined the spy game, its benefits and detriments in May with James M. Olson. Olson teaches at Texas AandM University, but before that he served as the chief of CIA counterintelligence at CIA headquarters. He’s also served overseas in Moscow, Vienna, and Mexico City. Olson was in town to speak at the World Affairs Council of Dallas Fort Worth, but we were able to discuss the state of espionage today and his book “Fair Play: The Moral Dilemmas of Spying” (Potomac Books, 2006) while he was here.
