On "false Defectors" Empty On "false Defectors"

This is from the book Historical Dictionary of International Espionage by Nigel West, the pen-name of Rupert Allason who is apparently widely regarded as the "expert's expert" on the subject.

On "false Defectors" False_10

So according to Allason, the concept didn't even exist until Dec 1961, based on advice from Golitzyn, with that advice dead wrong and only one possible example of a false defector from the Soviet Union ever materializing - and that was in the 1970s. 

Is Allason dead wrong? Is he just ignoring any US program? Or were their other ways of describing such a program prior to Golitzyn?

I think Allason answers the question. Yes, they were called "penetration" agents and had a different role to that suggested by Golitzyn.
