Product description

Review

'[Phillips] is an accomplished raconteur who tells his tales with a brisk pace, a sharp eye for detail and a sense of absurdity. His lively enthusiasm about his discoveries makes this book a rattling good read' -- Literary Review

'Phillips has shone a new light on the 1920s and found some ugly images... The wriggling and lying in the official statements are contemptible. We see government ineptitude and officially sanctioned surveillance of ordinary people... A roaring success' --Scotsman

'A welcome and fascinating study of a pivotal yet under-explored aspect of history. Using previously unseen files, Phillips illuminates the growing role of espionage as suspicions grew about the threat from the new Soviet state -- all set against the glamour of 1920s London. It is an intoxicating combination' --Martin Pearce, author of Spymaster

Timothy Phillips is the author of Beslan: The Tragedy of School No. 1 (Granta 2008). He grew up in Northern Ireland and now lives in London. He holds a doctorate in Russian from Oxford University and has written and spoken widely on British and Russian history.
