Memories by Andrei Gromyko
London, Sydney, Auckland & Johannesburg: Hutchinson, 1989
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Black boards with Gilt titling to Spine
Translated by: Harold Shukman
Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: The memoirs of Andrei Andreevich Gromyko are a unique publishing event. For more than fifty years he has held high office in the Soviet government, serving under every leader from Stalin to Gorbachev. As his countrys Foreign Minister he has met and negotiated with almost every leader throughout the world. Now in his memoirs he reveals the behind-the-scenes behaviour of Kremlin leaders, and the characters and events which have dominated his political life. Memories is one of the most important documents to come out of the Soviet Union, not only from a political point of view but because of the remarkable insight it gives into Gromykos Russia.

We learn of his upbringing in a small village far from the main cities, of his early academic prominence and of his courtship of his wife, Lidia Grinevich. We see him, in 1943, as ambassador to Washington, then in Yalta, alongside Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill. There are fascinating portraits of all his leading political contemporaries, but revelations too, such as the time Mao asked for Soviet support for an atomic bombing of American forces.

Gromyko also writes of many non-political figures whom he has met, including Charlie Chaplin, Paul Robeson and Marilyn Monroe, and of his friendship with Boris Pasternak. He speaks honestly of the internal issues of the day, such as human rights and of the present administrations attempts at glasnost. Many of his views from his sympathy for Nixon over Watergate to his affection for the Queen Mother will surprise those whose views of Soviet leaders are based on stereotypes.

Memories was first published in the Soviet Union in February 1988. For this edition Andrei Gromyko has added over 30,000 words of new material covering every aspect of his life and times, specifically expanding aspects of his story of interest to a Western audience.

Their Trade Is Treachery by Chapman Pincher
London: Sidgwick & Jackson, 1981
Hardback with Dust Jacket over Red boards with Gilt titling to Spine
Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs;

From the cover: This book is what Chapman Pincher regards as the scoop of his lifetime the inside story of treachery and cover-up in high places, never before told, never even suspected by the general public.

Their Trade is Treachery was originally the title of a booklet prepared in 1964 by MIS to show Whitehall officials the ruthless methods used by the Soviet bloc to trap the unwary into serving as spies and saboteurs. Ironically, the title of the booklet was only too well-chosen, for the security authorities vital to Britains interests both MI5 and MI6 have been far more widely and deeply penetrated by traitors working for the KGB and other Communist organizations than has hitherto been realized.

Burgess, Maclean and Philby are spies known to all, Blunt has recently been exposed as a traitor, but the treachery of others, who held even higher positions of trust, has long remained concealed.

In this remarkable and sensational book, Chapman Pincher reveals the extent of Soviet bloc penetration of Britains top security. He exposes the true extent of the Communist conspiracy to undermine the fabric of British life, and the methods used by Russians and their allies to gain a hold over the vulnerable and the unwary, so that they are prepared to betray their country. He shows how super-moles and super-spies have long served in MI5, MI6, the Foreign Office and defence installations, often reaching the top of their professions and causing untold damage. He shows that even Parliament and the trade unions are not free from this sinister penetration.

Chapman Pinchers Inside Story proved an enormous success. Their Trade is Treachery is more than a sensational follow-up, it is an important book. For Chapman Pincher looks to the future as well as the past, to try to prevent a continuing story of subversion, espionage and cover-up.
