The Autobiography of the Former Director-General of MI5. Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “The unexpected course of my life has involved me closely with some of the significant issues of the late 20th century, including the rise of terrorism, the end of the Cold War and some of the big social questions, such as women’s place in society (how can work and family be combined?), civil liberties (how far should the state intrude on the citizens’ privacy to ensure their safety?), and open government (how much should the public know about the secret state and how should it be controlled?). These are some of the issues that concerned me throughout my career in MI5, and which I discuss in this book.”
