    The ‘White Lady? spy net stretched across Europe, encompassing more than 1,000 agents and producing 70 per cent of Allied intelligence on the German forces in the First World War.

  • A Foreigner Carrying in the Crook of His Arm a Tiny Bombby Amitava Kumar

    Pan Macmillan 2015; US$ 5.20

    Bureaucratic in its convolutions and brutal in its deceptions, the war on terror has had an impact on our lives that we do not yet understand. We sense it.
