About the Book

Between 1970 and 1986, countries around the world expelled hundreds of Soviet officials and personnel for espionage or other misconduct. One official source puts the number at 672 for the 16-year period, or an average of 42 expulsions per year. Some were forced to live in numerous countries over the years while assuming different identities, their true names never to be discovered. This text documents nearly five hundred Soviet spies who were expelled, exposed or recalled, as well as acts of espionage in nearly one hundred countries. From infiltrating Swiss operations in Indonesia to operating within the Syrian embassy in Moscow, this encyclopedia provides a country-by-country list of various Soviet subversive efforts around the world.
