ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THE MAIN ENEMY
"Risen, the journalistic outsider, and Bearden, the clandestine insider, have combined their insight and knowledge to give us a compelling account of the last fierce days of Cold War machinations between Soviet and American intelligence. This is history very up close and very personal.” –Seymour M. Hersh
"Fascinating stuff . . . an inside view of a complex world . . . it doesn’t get any better than this. It’s great." –Robert De Niro
"Some study war from an armchair; others through field glasses. The best go into the firing line. Milt Bearden of the CIA was one of those. For those of us who recall the Cold War, this is fascinating stuff. For those who are too young, read and learn."–Frederick Forsyth, author of The Day of the Jackal and The Dogs of War
