Product Description: More than 50 years of deception by various governments, intelligence agencies, and individuals are documented and given relevance in today's geopolitical milieu by examining design proposals from the Avro company. Recently released official information on the Avro C-102 Jetliner and CF-105 Arrow, and their ultimate cancellations, reveals global intelligence perspectives from before World War II through the Cold War period. The geopolitical, technical, and economic aspects of the Avro Canada story are explored, as is the visionary engineering they demonstrated.
