From the cover: “A defector is a man who changes sides by legal means: one, in fact, who implements such a change by travelling to the country of his choice. Such an undertaking requires a powerful reason. It is the purpose of this study to look at some of the more startling cases that have captured the headlines in recent times. The stories of men like Pontecorvo, Philby, Penkovsky, Hayhanen, and Lee Harvey Oswold cast an interesting light on human nature.”
