Shadow State: Murder, Mayhem and Russia's Remaking of the West (Paperback)Luke Harding (author)
- In stock
A riveting account of ruthless spies, shadowy intelligence and the systematic disruption of Western politics, Harding's scorching book details the extraordinary covert operations that Putin’s Russia is engaged in in the West.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Collusion
No terrorist group has deployed a nerve agent in a civilian area or used a radioactive mini-bomb in London. The Kremlin has done both.
Shadow State is a gripping investigative account of how Russia's spies helped elect Donald Trump, backed Brexit, murdered enemies and threatened the very basis of western democracy. The operatives come in disguise. They pose as toursits, journalists and businessmen. Utterly ruthless, sometimes bungling and always ambitious, they roam from Salisbury to Helsinki, Ukraine to the Central African Republican, London to Washington.
Shadow State is a riveting and alarming investigation into those spies and the way Russia has used them to wage an increasingly bold war in the UK and beyond. The Kremlin has attempted to reshape politics in their own mould; the future of Western democracy is at stake as a result.

“If you need a book that pulls together the evidence of interference this is the book!”
This book is the perfect companion piece to Mafia State and Collusion. The book brilliantly pulls together all of the threads to help understand Putins interference with western democracies. A must read!
