Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains a lot of very detailed info written by people who clearly know their subject but it is a difficult read. It should be interesting because of the detail given but it is written at times in such an "informing" and sometimes patronising academic essay way that it was a struggle to maintain interest. I came back to it several times but eventually gave up without finishing.
Some of the info is now out of date but the punchline is basically that all the main secret services have kept themselves in a job at the end of the cold war by talking up the threat from terrorism.

I agree with a previous reviewer that it is a difficult read but it is illuminating nonetheless if somewhat outdated. Much has transpired in the world in the past eleven years and Western intelligence services are facing a much more challenging environment. I would welcome an up-to-date account presented in a more readable form.

This book is 230 pages long and filled with an up to date account of the current state of intelligence services around the world.

It explains the new role that secret services have found themselves in since 9/11 and discusses these organisations and how they operate on the fringes of the law in many cases.

Excellent stuff
