Espionage, election meddling, disinformation, assassinations, subversion and sabotage – all attract headlines today about Putin’s Russia. But they are far from new. Spies and intelligence have been the Kremlin’s means of equalising the imbalance of arms between the East and West since before the Cold War.
This hidden espionage can be traced across continents and decades, from the freezing streets of St Petersburg in 1917 to the beaches of Normandy in 1944.
Intelligence expert Calder Walton examines a long century of conflict between Russia and the West and examines how this will continue to develop and dominate the 21st century.
Calder Walton is one of the world’s leading intelligence historians. He is editor-in-chief of the Cambridge History of Espionage and Intelligence, to be published by Cambridge University Press in three volumes, which will be a landmark study in the global history of intelligence. He is currently the Assistant Director of the Applied History Project at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
