Learn about how spies were used by Moses, Alexander the Great, and Sun Tzu. Read about the gadgets that help spies get the information they seek. Readers are sure to be interested in the accounts of real-life spies, including Nathan Hale, Mary Bowser, Elizabeth Van Lew, Odette Sansom, and Moe Berg. Portalupi also includes information about spy education and training, as well as about modern day spying. The book's epilogue includes information about the International Spy Museum.
