Patriots, Traitors and Empires is an account of modern Korean history, written from the point of view of those who fought to free their country from the domination of foreign empires. It traces the history of Korea's struggle for freedom from opposition to Japanese colonialism starting in 1905 to North Korea's current efforts to deter the threat of invasion by the United States or anybody else by having nuclear weapons. Koreans have been fighting a civil war since 1932, when Kim Il Sung, founder of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, along with other Korean patriots, launched a guerrilla war against Japanese colonial domination. Other Koreans, traitors to the cause of Korea's freedom, including a future South Korean president, joined the side of Japan's Empire, becoming officers in the Japanese army or enlisting in the hated colonial police force. From early in the 20th century when Japan incorporated Korea into its burgeoning empire, Koreans have struggled against foreign domination, first by Japan then by the United States. Patriots, Traitors and Empires, The Story of Korea's Struggle for Freedom is a much-needed antidote to the jingoist clamor spewing from all quarters whenever Korea is discussed.

Students and enthusiasts of American history are familiar with the Revolutionary War spies Nathan Hale and Benedict Arnold, but few studies have closely examined the wider intelligence efforts that enabled the colonies to gain their independence. Spies, Patriots, and Traitors provides readers with a fascinating, well-documented, and highly readable account of American intelligence activities during the era of the Revolutionary War, from 1765 to 1783, while describing the intelligence sources and methods used and how our Founding Fathers learned and practiced their intelligence role. The author, a retired CIA officer, provides insights into these events from an intelligence professional’s perspective, highlighting the tradecraft of intelligence collection, counterintelligence, and covert actions and relating how many of the principles of the era’s intelligence practice are still relevant today. Kenneth A. Daigler reveals the intelligence activities of famous personalities such as Samuel Adams, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Nathan Hale, John Jay, and Benedict Arnold, as well as many less well-known figures. He examines the important role of intelligence in key theaters of military operations, such as Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and in General Nathanael Greene’s campaign in South Carolina; the role of African Americans in the era’s intelligence activities; undertakings of networks such as the Culper Ring; and intelligence efforts and paramilitary actions conducted abroad. Spies, Patriots, and Traitors adds a new dimension to our understanding of the American Revolution. The book’s scrutiny of the tradecraft and management of Revolutionary War intelligence activities will be of interest to students, scholars, intelligence professionals, and anyone who wants to learn more about this fascinating era of American history.

Patriots and Traitors helps define the nature of important intersections between culture and politics in postwar Japan. A new shift in consciousness during the 1950s and after can be observed in the sustained public response to various events surrounding the Sorge/Ozaki affair, one of the most celebrated spy cases of the period. Ozaki Hotsumi, a prominent Japanese intellectual during the 1930s, was an astute writer on China, a reporter for the Asahi newspapers, and, eventually, a highly placed government adviser. In his attempt to fight fascism in prewar Japan, he began to collaborate with the Soviet Union through his associations with the Soviet spy Richard Sorge, justifying this clandestine activity as the only means he could find to combat those forces of domestic repression he felt were ultimately to destroy his own country. Ozaki and Sorge were executed before the end of the war, but the reverberations of Ozaki's actions, and of his execution, left significant traces in the minds of many Japanese as they attempted to come to terms with the ultimate meaning of their involvement in the Pacific War. The Sorge case remains a cultural phenomenon and reveals some of the strategies undertaken by the educated public to discover ways in which to deal with important and disturbing issues in their collective past.

This is a classic morality tale – a story of the eternal struggle between good and evil. It speaks of those who resisted that evil and of those who succumbed to it. Little is known about those whose courage and conviction drove them to risk and lose everything to bring the Third Reich to an end. The story of Georg Elser and his attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler encapsulates the wider story of the anti-Nazi German resistance almost perfectly. All the moral and ethical issues and the practical problems that the resisters faced are found in his story. In sum, it is a microcosm of the larger story. Elser personified the entire resistance movement! Presented within the broader context of German history and contemporary world events, this comprehensive study relies on extensive historiography by noted scholars to produce a well-balanced, timely narrative of the German resistance to one of history’s most violent regimes. Traitors or Patriots? tells a story of incredible courage and conviction that transcends time and place—a story for our own time and for all time.

After decades of erosion of the U.S. Constitution, the United States is faced with a major constitutional crisis not seen since the Civil War. Despite being plagued by scandals and economic woes, a president astoundingly wins re-election to a second term largely based on the promise of redistribution of the nation’s wealth and an “October Surprise.” The night he is re-elected, an assassination attempt throws America into chaos, resulting in riots, food shortages and violence across the country. When it is discovered the assassin has ties to the Tea Party, the President and his administration see their opportunity to quash political opposition and launch a diabolical conspiracy to hide the truth of the assassin’s real motives. The President and his minions attempt to keep the lid on the conspiracy by any means necessary, including issuing unconstitutional executive orders. Jack-booted federal agents are ordered to raid private citizens’ homes to eradicate the Tea Party once and for all. After an ordinary citizen in Texas, a founder of a local Tea Party, is terrorized and held without due process, the governor of Texas dispatches iconic Texas legend Pops Younger to rescue him. The entire country becomes riveted in the suspense of the high-stakes chess game that pits the State of Texas and the Texas Rangers against the administration and the ATF, which in turn escalates to unprecedented proportions. An exciting and fast-paced political thriller, Patriots of Treason presents a very realistic ‘what if’ scenario that will keep you on the edge of your seat, regardless of your political persuasion.
