The Defence of The Realm: The Authorized History of MI5

£19.99

Product description

This book is in good condition, with light staining to the dust sleeve, and a small tear, approximately 0.2 cm, at the bottom of the dust sleeve. There is slight creasing around the outer edges of the dust sleeve. When the book is closed, there are dull stains visible on the outside of the pages. There is no damage to the binding and no damage or staining to the pages. The price is written in pencil on the inside front page.

An unprecedented publishing event: to mark the centenary of its foundation, MI5 has for the first time opened its archives to an independent historian. The resulting book will reveal the precise role of MI5 in 20th century British history, from its foundation in 1909, through two world wars, up to and including its present roles in counter espionage and terrorism. It promises to reveal much new information, add significantly to our understanding of major events and individuals, and perhaps lay to rest a few persistent myths. Review, serialisation and media coverage is sure to be significant for what is undoubtedly one of the biggest history books of 2009.
