Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

While the word "sexspionage" may seem more titillating than useful, it describes an element of aberrant activity that behavioral scientists find fascinating, and counterespionage specialists are interested in the concept in terms of its potential for security breaches. Author West (postwar intelligence, Center for Counterintelligence and Security Studies) has compiled hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on the events, people, agencies, and operations that in some way involved sexspionage throughout history. It also examines the organizations and governments that managed the practice to further their agendas, the frequently tragic histories of those individuals who betrayed or were betrayed, and the role of women in espionage and other clandestine operations.

Synopsis:

In the realm of human behavior, sex can be the catalyst for risky or reckless conduct. The Historical Dictionary of Sexspionage explores this behavior through a chronology, an introduction, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on the secret agencies, operations, and events. From Delilah's seduction of Samson in 1161 BC to State Department official Donald Keyser's conviction of passing secrets to Isabelle Cheng, a Taiwanese intelligence officer, in 2007, Nigel West recounts the history of sexspionage.
