Originally published in 1987, "Thwarting Enemies at Home and Abroad" is a unique primer that teaches the principles, strategy, and tradecraft of counterintelligence (CI). CI is often misunderstood and narrowly equated with security and catching spies. CI is the art of actively protecting secrets but also aggressively thwarting, penetrating, and deceiving hostile intelligence organizations to neutralize or manipulate their operations. Johnson, a career CIA intelligence officer, presents the nuts and bolts of the business of counterintelligence. Although written during the late Cold War, this book continues to be useful for intelligence professionals, scholars, and students because the basic principles of CI are largely timeless. General readers will enjoy the lively narrative and detailed descriptions of tradecraft that reveal the real world of intelligence and espionage. A new foreward by William Hood provides a contemporary perspective on this valuable book.

"Johnson's book is easily the best introduction to the frequently misunderstood world of counterintelligence. This classic work, packed with timeless principles and highly readable, is a vital addition to the bookshelf of any intelligence professional."-David N. Edger, former CIA operations officer, visiting professor at the University of Oklahoma"Counterintelligence, without question, is the toughest job in the world of spying. And, historically, we haven't been as good at it as we should. That needs to change. One glaring shortcoming in recent years has been the lack of a good treatise on the 'art' of counterintelligence. Bill Johnson's book, which has been out of print for years, fills that gap. He gets it right. Only a respected CI pro like Bill could have described so clearly our arcane business of dangles, doubles, defectors, and deception. Thwarting Enemies will not only be a fascinating read for the general public but will also serve as a text for a whole new generation of CI trainees."-James M. Olson, former chief of CIA counterintelligence and author of Fair Play: The Moral Dilemmas of Spying
