Summary
  • "An inside look at the deadly world of espionage
  • Spies exposes the secret successes and public failures of intelligence gathering and operations from ancient times to the current War on Terrorism. Secret agents have affected the outcomes of wars and crucial battles throughout history, and they often help nations avoid war altogether
  • With easy-to-follow illustrated case studies and sidebar features, Spies reveals the behind-the-scenes stories of famous spies, international secrets, betrayals, and bravery in the long history of spying. The book describes in vivid detail the art of tradecraft -- the techniques and devices used to steal state secrets and help agents survive in hostile environments. And a special section explores whether or not spies like James Bond really exist
  • Today, sophisticated digital and space-based technology gathers untold amounts of raw data. Yet far from rendering the spy on the ground obsolete, human intelligence is more vital than ever to separate the truth from the deception
  • Spies is a factual and fascinating look into a dangerous world where nothing is what it appears to be
