Las culturas se fosilizan si están aisladas, pero nacen o renacen en el contacto con otros hombres y mujeres, los hombres y mujeres de otra cultura, otro credo, otra raza. Si no reconocemos nuestra humanidad en los demás, nunca l. a. reconoceremos en nosotros mismos. De los espejos de obsidiana enterrados en l. a. urbe totonaca de El Tajín a los espejos ibéricos de Cervantes y Velázquez, el de l. a. locura y el del asombro, un intercambio de reflejos culturales ha ido y venido de una a otra orilla del Atlántico a lo largo de más de quince años; este ensayo cuenta esa historia, los angeles nuestra.
Sólo nos vemos enteros en el espejo desenterrado de l. a. identidad cuando aparecemos acompañados del otro; entonces somos por fin capaces de mirar de cerca las consecuencias de nuestras acciones y convertir los angeles experiencia en conocimiento.

But such operations require careful attention to detail—a deception exposed is like a boomerang—and as we perceived in Vienna, the KGB’s execution could be less sophisticated than its plan. Among the false agents they strewed in our path in Vienna, like Feoktistov mentioned above, was Olga, a half-Russian interpreter from Austria whom we duly recruited to spy on the Soviet military command where she worked. After a number of meetings which netted us mediocre tidbits about the Soviet city command in the Bellaria building on Vienna’s Ring, Olga told us she was being avidly pursued by a young Soviet ofﬁcer named Sasha, and she rather liked him, too.
It was a climate made for adventurers, black marketers, information peddlers and fabricators, soldiers without an army, refugees from the East without prospects of going further, and former intelligence operatives with a cunning sense of what the increasingly hostile occupiers would want to know about each other. More promisingly, the city offered extraordinary access to Soviet ofﬁcials, the only potential human sources of the critical military-political intelligence the White House was desperately demanding of us in CIA.

I turned to see the red hair and smiling face of John Dimmer, a friend from student days in Switzerland. Neither of us knew that the other had signed on. ’’ he said. ’’ With all the authority of his three months’ seniority this veteran added another bit of advice. ‘‘You should join us in Vienna. Small station. ’’ This sounded good to me, having already had a taste of Vienna.
