If secret agents were truly secret, books such as this could never be written. Fortunately for the curious reader, agents become double agents, spies rat out their handlers, and intelligence officers undergo ideological crises. Spies who jump the wall often do so with sensitive knowledge and documents that become public.

The long history of Russian intelligence is a checkered one: sometimes notorious, sometimes triumphant. For decades, the Soviet Union’s KGB was the largest foreign-intelligence service in the world, tracing its history back to the Cheka secret police established by the Bolsheviks in 1917. Agencies stumbled as the Soviet Union crumbled, but these days Russian intelligence is rising, with the SVR, FSB and other organizations that replaced the KGB growing in power to combat modern terrorism.

This book takes a look at the history of Russian Espionage.
