    Advance Praise for The Devil’s Chessboard “A frightening biography of power, manipulation, and outright treason The story of Allen Dulles and the power elite that ran Washington, D.C., following World War II is the stuff of spy fiction All engaged American citizens should read this book and have their eyes opened.”—. Get this from a library! The devil's chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the rise of America's secret government. [David Talbot] -- "An explosive, headline-making portrait of Allen Dulles, the man who transformed the CIA into the most powerful and secretive colossus in Washington, from the founder of and author of the.

    This is the sort of nonfiction book that, inevitably, gets likened to a fast-paced spy thriller. While the comparison isn't wrong, The Devil's Chessboard is also a chilling psychological depiction of a man who seemed to operate outside the moral cosmos that most people inhabit.

The Devil’s Chessboard seeks to shine a torch down the well of “deep politics,” as Peter Dale Scott—an important scholar of American power—has termed this underworld of unaccountable authority. Until we have a full reckoning of the Dulles era and its high crimes, the country cannot find its way forward.
