Oleg Gordievsky was a KGB colonel and Resident-designate in London in 1985 when he defected- it was later revealed that he had been working as a double agent for British intelligence since 1974, regularly risking his life by passing copies of KGB documents to the British. This volume is a revealing selection of this highly classified material, with an informative commentary by Christopher Andrew, based on joint analysis of the documents with Gordievsky.

The book gives us a fascinating inside look at the workings and the thinking of the KGB, whose chairman was General V. A. Kryuchkov, later one of the leaders of the abortive coup against Gorbachev in August 1991. The documents range from somewhat comic instructions to sabotage the U.S. bicentennial to detailed methods for recruiting agents to orders concerning the KGBs largest peacetime intelligence operations, an attempt to secure information on President Reagans (non-existent) preparations for a nuclear first strike against the Soviet Union. The book was first published in England in 1992 under the title Instructions from the Centre.
