I am updating the text of this book on this site as regularly as possible, with a separate page dedicated to each chapter. Among other things, I am adding further reflections and items of information from new research and new reading of secondary sources. These pages are beginning to look like notes for a new edition.

  1. The Ambassador as Agent-runner
  2. Arrival of the Secret Service
  3. Cuckoos in the Nest?
  4. Spooks as ‘Diplomats’
