Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the world of espionage — from the early spymasters to the electronic surveillance of today. Everybody knows that spies wear white dinner jackets, drive sports cars, like their drinks shaken not stirred, and carry electric saws disguised as watches. Or do they? Certainly, some real spies are sophisticated members of the diplomatic service, but most are ordinary people from all walks of life. Spy is a journey through the history of espionage, from biblical spies who helped bring down the walls of Jericho to today's technological intrusions on the internet. Real-life spying equipment and gadgets are as amazing as those designed by Q for James Bond. Eyewitness Spy shows how, after the Cold War, and despite the new spirit of international cooperation, there is still a place for the spy in the modern world. Written by Richard Platt, author of the best-selling Cross-sections! Man-of-War and Eyewitness Pirate, Spy is a unique introduction to the dangerous lives of those who exist in the shadowy world of espionage.

Synopsis:

Go under cover to investigate the intriguing world of espionage. From spies of Genghis Khan to the real inspiration behind James Bond to the history and operations of secret service offices around the world, this volume reveals all the fascinating tools, disguises, and tricks of the trade. Full color.
