Spying, it has been said, is the "second oldest profession." In fact, the first known intelligence report was written on a clay tablet four thousand years ago and spoke of a secret mission on the Euphrates River. From that time forward, the fabric of history has been woven with the thread of espionage. Indeed, it might not be an exaggeration to say that history itself would not exist without the countless untold stories of leaked information and traded secrets that influence its ebb and flow - what one might call the secret history of history. Here, in Spying: The Secret History of History, the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC, takes us behind the scenes and shows us how the world of espionage really works in this fully illustrated, information-packed history of espionage throughout the ages and across the globe.
