Customer Review

28 November 2017
I found this book rather disappointing, especially considering the author's closeness to his subject. Despite its title, the actions and analysis of the motivations of Melita Norwood make up only a small part of this book, mostly in the introduction and the final chapter. Most of the book covers more general information about disputes within early revolutionary and communist movements, or technical details about research for and the construction of nuclear weapons. The former is quite interesting, and a reminder of the very different attitudes of those times compared to later cold war assumptions; the latter technical details are dry and could usefully have been put into an appendix. This Kindle edition lacked the illustrations that are, I understand, in the paper version, and the endnote links did not work properly.
