THE SECRET WORLD: A HISTORY OF INTELLIGENCE
Monday 4 March | 12.30pm | £10
with Christopher Andrew and Helen Fry
Christopher Andrew, the world’s leading historian of intelligence, presents a scintillating global account of three thousand years of spying. From the ultimate Biblical spymaster, Joshua, whose extensive spy network used a brothel in Bethlehem as their base, to the tactics of Caesar, the writings of Sun Tzu, Elizabeth I’s exasperation with her spies, and the West’s failure before 9/11 to understand the role of religious extremism in driving terrorism, this is a brilliant and entertaining account. In conversation with best-selling author and historian Helen Fry.
