For decades, America obsessed over Russian spies, while China quietly penetrated the highest levels of government. Now, for the first time, based on innumerable interviews with key insiders at the FBI and CIA as well as with Chinese agents and people close to them, David Wise tells the full story of China's many victories and defeats in its American spy wars.Two key cases interweave throughout: Katrina Leung, codenamed Parlor Maid, worked for the FBI for years, even after she became a secret double agent for China, aided by love affairs with both of her FBI handlers. She, in turn, helped a key Chinese-American scientist, codename Tiger Trap, who stole nuclear secrets. These two cases lead to many others, involving famous names from Wen Ho Lee to Richard Nixon, stunning national security leaks, and sophisticated cyberspying. The story leads right up to the present, with a West Coast spy ring whose members were sentenced in 2010but it surely will continue for years to come, as China faces off against America.David Wise's history of China's spy wars in America is packed with eye-popping revelations.

David A. Wise is the John F. Stambaugh Professor of Political Economy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. He is the area director of Health and Retirement Programs and director of the Program on the Economics of Aging at the National Bureau of Economic Research.
