Espionage Description

Now, more than ever before, interest in espionage is peaking. The demand for covert ops grows daily, the CIA's most frequently requested records refer to the espionage cases of Oleg Penkovsky, Gary Powers and the Rosenbergs. Recently released records hold evidence of the truth behind recent (Cold War) espionage legends, and there are increasingly explicit comments now being made about the successes and problems of espionage organisations like the SIS, the KGB, the NSA and the CIA, against the more difficult targets of international terrorism. "Espionage" is a detailed and up-to-date guide to the espionage world in all its complexity - from the times of the Ancients to the current war on terror. A fresh and frank look at the challenges and priorities facing spies of our new century: from keeping alert to the threats presented by surviving Cold War organisations and power blocs to the deadlier and more difficult assignments to foil the efforts of terrorists and criminals. "Espionage" includes detailed insights into technology and tradecraft essential to espionage - letter drops, satellite surveillance, disinformation and decrypting; examples of how (and how not) to join an espionage service; stories of the great Master Spies; explanation of the ins and outs of detecting and avoiding being monitored and includes stories of the classic coups of the recent past.
