Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-This slim book provides a history of the trade, includes memorable spy stories, and discusses the future of espionage. The facts come fast and furiously, interspersed with attractive color photographs. Each topic is dealt with on two to three pages, with a summary at the end of each chapter. Numerous, high-interest archival photos, film stills, cartoons, and pictures of equipment fill the pages. A glossary and abbreviations of organizations round out the presentation. An eye-catching introduction, best for browsers.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
