CIA/FBI manual on subversion?

A couple years ago I read a CIA or FBI manual about subversion in other countries. I believe it was written in the 1950s, and it focused on "mundane" subversion methods. I don't believe it was "The Official C.I.A. Manual of Trickery and Deception." Does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

It was a free PDF, and I remember it because the methods were eerily similar to how people behave in my office, e.g., being purposely obtuse when asked to perform a task, being late, spreading rumors, having a bad attitude so morale would be lowered, and, non-office-related: letting moths go in a movie theater. The idea was to throw a wrench in the system without anyone being able to call you out on it.
