Editorial Reviews

"Britton has produced a comprehensive guide to the many espionage-oriented television series that have aired in the United States from the 1960s to the present.... Offers a fascinating window into an understudied genre. The first entry in a new series on television, this work is recommended for academic libraries that support television and popular culture programs and public libraries."-Library Journal
