Spy Cultures: A Comparative Analysis of Soviet and American Intelligence Operations During the Cold War.

My thesis is a cultural comparison of intelligence communities in the Soviet Union and the US during the Cold War. It focuses on the disproportionate use of technology versus human intelligence between the countries, who was considered the main adversary in each country, and the pre-existing frameworks about the enemy in each country. These themes are synthesized from scholarly sources, expanded upon by interviews I conducted with former intelligence agents, and compared with the representations of intelligence operations in Soviet and American films produced during the Cold War.
