This is a history of the spy novel as a literary, social and political history. It discusses different authors including Buchan, Ambler, Greene, and le Carre and the questions concerning the relationship of the genre to politics in the 20th century. There are sidelights on the authors themselves and their own relationship with the intelligence services.
