About This Item

New York: Random House, 1999. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover with Dust Jacket. Fine/Fine.

No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal shelf handling and a faint small pen mark on the lower edge near the spine.  9.5 inches tall; 402 pages with Bibliography and Index. Illustrated.. Jay Lovestone's remarkable life, an often overlooked tale of the twentieth century, began when he immigrated to the US from Lithuania in 1897.

Initially ascending to leadership within the Communist Party of America, Lovestone later broke ties with Moscow and aligned with the anti-Communist camp post-World War II. His pivotal role in Cold War strategy earned him recognition as one of America's top power-brokers.

His story reads like a gripping spy novel, complete with surveillance, love affairs, and clandestine operations. Through the skilled narration of a talented biographer, it unveils hidden aspects of Cold War history and CIA operations, shedding light on the global power dynamics of the era.
