9780851125916: Guinness Book of Espionage

"The Guinness Book of Espionage" is an insight into the hidden world of the spy - from the earliest existing secret document (an ancient Mesopotamian cuneiform tablet) and the first professional espionage networks, to the roles of MI5, the FBI (and their successors), the KGB (and its Russian successor, the FIS). It also looks at the roles of secret service organizations in domestic policing, at future trends in espionage and the role that technology has to play in the development of espionage. Illustrated throughout, this title charts the history of subterfuge and explains the role of the agent, the setting up of safe-houses, the ins and outs of computer hacking, the problems of communications, and the need for espionage during wars. It also explains how espionage differs from subversion and terrorism and asks: is there such a thing as a typical spy? Packed with case histories, and including profiles of history's most infamous secret agents, plus a comprehensive glossary, "The Guinness Book of Espionage" should appeal to armchair spies everywhere. The author has strong connections with the armed forces and has served in Europe, the Falklands, and the Middle East. His experiences in the fields of surveillance and counter-espionage give him a unique insight into the world of "counter-intelligence". "Mark Lloyd" is a pseudonym.
