I recently found copies of this for ordering online, so thought I'd let folks know who may be interested. To my knowledge, it was only published once,
but when I was younger, I got this book from a friend, and actually did get in a CIA trainee program while in college. The program was soon cancelled,
unfortunately, due to some political events of the time (i.e. the coup in Russia).
But, the book has some very cool stuff. The primary "juicy" info in the book is a listing of espionage-related classes in universities throughout the
country, along with the professors that teach them. Granted, could be outdated, but many of these teachers are tenured, and still reachable for folks
looking to hook up with a local recruiter (that's how I got involved in it). So, figured I'd pass it along.
The publisher is ARCO.
Just got my copy the other day, (as I had since loaned it to a friend who never gave it back to me).
Has a lot of history about the CIA (as this is the primary focus of the exam), but I do remember several practical exercises too, such as how to
handle situations, etc.
The book does do a good job of explaining what a CIA Case Officer does (and it's not what one would most likely think), so it's kind of a good primer
for any Conspiracy Theorist, to get an idea of how an intelligence agency functions, etc.
