Through the life story of Rudolph Ivonovich Abel, Bernikow examines the meaning of the title double agent, to friends, neighbors and the concept of identity itself. Living as Emil Goldfus for eight years among New York’s young Bohemians he developed an identity that the author does not take for granted as simply false, but seeks to portray in the light of his later exposure.

A very good copy, in mylar covered dust jacket with torn spine, former owner’s name on front end paper, blind stamp on title page.
