This book certainly makes for disturbing reading. Especially after the revelations regarding the police and their attempts to undermine the family of racist murder victim Stephen Lawrence. The sheer volume of effort and expense that's gone into these operations is staggering - not only for the fact that much of the actions carried out by people like Environmental protesters, could have been policed under public order legislation (admitted by undercover cop Mark Kennedy) - but also the weird, grey moral area that these undercover officers more often than not decided to step into. Outright criminal acts, destroying the lives of women they became involved with (and the children they fathered with them). All makes for uncomfortable truths.
