Synopsis: An account of the Profumo scandal of the 1960s reveals the truth behind Stephen Ward's double-agent claim and argues that his trial was a corruption of justice

From Library Journal: In this compelling investigative study, Knightley and Kennedy (not the Caroline Kennedy) reexamine the scandal that rocked the British government in 1963 and present persuasive new evidence to clear the name of Stephen Ward. Ward, a "society osteopath" involved in espionage activities, committed suicide following his implication in the sex scandal. This book not only brings the entire affair back to life, but places it within the context of critical East-West political maneuverings. It is based on Ward's own tapes and writings, on more than 80 interviews, and on some previously-classified FBI documents. Fast-paced yet solidly researched, this is recommended for large public and academic libraries. Thomas A. Karel, Franklin and Marshall Coll. Lib., Lancaster, Pa.
