In this book a writer specialising in espionage matters assesses, clearly and with numerous case histories, all we know about the modem spy, from Kim Philby to Howard Hunt: how he is recruited; how he is assessed and trained; what his work consists of; how he himself recruits subagents; what happens to the men and women who succeed - and those who fail. The final chapter looks at the future of spying and counter spying: will technology take over entirely, or will the spy always be among us ?
