“The dysfunctions and overreach of the total surveillance state were present at its birth, according to this engrossing history of the National Security Administration. Journalist Budiansky traces the development of American signals intelligence… [and] is lucid in describing the science and art of breaking complex ciphers, which helped drive advances in electronics and computing… Budiansky leavens the history and technology with colorful profiles of crytographers and spies; the results is a lively account of how today’s information controversies emerged.”
Publishers Weekly

“This is a balanced, authoritative portrait of an institution in which brilliant innovation in mathematics, computing and technology has coexisted with gross invasions of societal privacy.”
