The need to defend against terrorist outrages has drawn unprecedented public attention to modern-day global espionage, from the US government's involvement in the politics of the Middle East, Europe and Africa, to the surveillance of their own citizens by governments throughout the western world. This compelling reference resource contains over 500 entries covering every aspect of modern-day intelligence-gathering and counter-terrorism, along with a comprehensive overview of its history. Global in scope, Espionage focuses in particular on developments in the field of intelligence since the end of the Cold War:
-Governmental failure to foresee recent terrorist attacks against western targets
-Counter-Terrorism, including the growth in commercial terrorism
-Electronic and communications surveillance
-Illegal activities by the intelligence services from around the world, including assassination, smuggling and torture
-Terminology and equipment explained

With entries on individual spies, politicians and diplomats, from the players to the patsies, and profiles of the key historical events and scandals from the history of spying, Espionage is the ultimate guide for journalists, researchers and anyone with an interest in this highly topical, controversial and chilling subject.
