Product Description


'A meticulously researched book ... Dubbed an agent of British imperialism, by Joseph Stalin, English Spy Reginald Teague-Jones is the subject of this highly readable biography ... Ter Minassian tells a fascinating tale.' --Cahiers du Monde Russe

'A wonderfully engaging tale of secret service. This is the gripping story of Reginald Teague-Jones, an intelligence officer with a ring-side seat on the clandestine struggle for influence in Central Asia between the Russian and British empires, and a full-blooded account of revolution and rebellion along the Silk Road and across all of central Asia.' --Richard Aldrich, Professor of International Security, University of Warwick, and author of GCHQ: The Uncensored Story of Britain s Most Secret Intelligence Agency

'A well written and thoroughly documented biographical narrative of the life of Reginald Teague-Jones, an Englishman who saw service as a political officer in British India as well as in the Near East. It will appeal to a wide audience interested in intrigue, espionage and ripping yarns and to those with a developed enthusiasm for early Soviet history.' --David Schimmelpenninck van der Oye, Professor of History, Brock University and author of Russian Orientalism: Asia in the Russian Mind from Catherine the Great to the Emigration
