The Art of Betrayal: The Secret History of Mi6: Life and Death in the British Secret Service

The Art of Betrayal: The Secret History of Mi6: Life and Death in the British Secret Service Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MI6 has been cloaked in secrecy and shrouded in myth since it was created one hundred years ago.

Our understanding of what it means to be a spy has been largely defined by the fictional worlds of Ian Fleming and John le Carré. Gordon Corera provides a unique and unprecedented insight into this secret world and the reality that lies behind the fiction. He tells the story of how the secret service has changed since the end of the Second World War and, by focusing on the relationships that lie at the heart of espionage, illustrates the danger, the drama, and the moral ambiguities that come with working for British intelligence. 

Synopsis:

"A wide-ranging, thought-provoking, and highly readable history of Britain's postwar Secret Intelligence Service, popularly known as MI6."--Andrew Roberts,
