Want to know all about espionage, covert action, andcounterintelligence? Here's an excellent place to begin."

"Gill and Phythian provide the best introduction to the study ofsecurity and intelligence in democratic societies. They have doneso by marrying the rigour of academic analysis with theaccessibility of more popular accounts – no mean trick. Thenew edition is not only updated to include the most contemporarydevelopments, but also expands and deepens the authors’critical reflections on the state of intelligence in the post-9/11world. This is a must-read for everyone concerned with security inthe face of terrorism and for democratic freedoms in the face ofthe expansion of state security powers."
