Professor Jeffrey Burds of Northeastern University delves into the history of espionage in this eye-opening lecture series. The course opens with espionage activity in the ancient world and the Roman Empire and continues with the American Revolution, Age of Napoleon, and American Civil War. Throughout this compelling discussion it becomes evident that spying is not only a never-ending source of fascination but also a major contributor to world history and the development of nations.

This has many very interesting stories about the important role of espionage in history.
I want Part 2!

This ranks in the top ten percent of the three hundred or so audio books I have heard, probably because it relates to my 28 year career as an intelligence officer in the US Army. Professor Burds is to be congratulated for this outstanding presentation. I am dismayed at the gratuitous one star review posted here with no explanation of the reason for it. Why a person would do such a thing escapes me. Bad reviews are useful only if they have substance. If there were any way for the editors to excise reviews that serve only a destructive purpose, I would urge them to remove the review by F-M, and not to accept such contributions in future.
I look forward very much to Part 2!
