9780753828335: MI6: Life and Death in the British Secret Service
Rezension:

His analysis is shrewd, his judgement sound...(the book's) strength is to present stories of the secret service's successes and failures within the political and strategic context of the times. (Adam Sisman THE SUNDAY TIMES 2011-08-07)

THE ART OF BETRAYAL tells the history of MI6 in the words of real spies. (THE MAIL ON SUNDAY 2011-08-15)

A refreshing...(and) compelling read. (Christopher Silvester THE DAILY EXPRESS 2011-08-19)

Corera, the BBC's security correspondent, has enjoyed privileged access to key spy players from the past few decades and, writing in an engaging style, he picks up the story of the MI6 at the point where the "official" history grinds to a halt after the Second World War. (Annie Machon THE SUNDAY EXPRESS 2011-08-21)

As a good journalist and a reader of spy novels, Corera presents his material as fast-paced stories, from the covert diplomacy of the Cold War to recent and current security concerns in Afghanistan and the Middle East, and he humanises the grand dramas of a duplicitous trade. (Iain Finlayson THE TIMES 2011-09-03)

Highly readable and well-researched account of the Service...Let's hope the current generation of spooks has learnt from past mistakes. (Con Coughlin THE DAILY TELEGRAPH 2011-09-03)

Corera provides a unique insight into how British intelligence has changed since the Second World War and how our spymasters reacted to major crises such as the September 11 attacks and the Iraq war. A fascinating read. ( THE PEOPLE 2011-09-03)

Superb new history of British intelligence ( THE EVENING STANDARD 2011-09-07)

The best post-1949 account of British intelligence I have read...this is as good as it gets. And it's a good read. ( THE SPECTATOR 2011-09-17)

This book will intrigue anyone with a taste for adventure and an interest in the moral dilemmas of loyalty and disloyalty. ( COUNTRY LIFE)

His readable, breezy book's strength is to present the service's successes and failures within the political context of the times. (Adam Sisman THE SUNDAY TIMES CULTURE 2012-09-30)

BBC security correspondant Gordon Corera's illuminating postwar history of Britain's secret intelligence services is told with the brio of a thriller and a good deal more clarity. ( THE FINANCIAL TIMES 2012-10-20)

An absorbing and often exhilarating account. ( THE SUNDAY BUSINESS POST 2012-10-21)

This fast-moving account by the BBC's Security Correspondent reveals that the true story of Britain's overseas intelligence service is as gripping as any novel... Corera works wonders in untangling the murky, convoluted doings of the organisation through the decades. ( THE INDEPENDENT 2012-12-01)
