Reveals the history of espionage and its use of and dependency on technology, beginning with the Second World War and continuing through the Cold War and into the present Internet age where hackers and surveillance are commonplace.The intertwining forces of computers and espionage are reshaping the entire world: what was once the preserve of a few intelligence agencies now affects us all.

A good (very) high level look at the problem of spying and warfare blurring together with the coming of the Internet (and computerisation in general). Contains zero technical content (like all BBC reporting) which really lets the book down. I'm sure the intent was to make the book accessible but other books manage this by explaining technical issues, not by completely ignoring them. It also suffers from time compression of the past as the author quickly catches up to modern times making this less of a history book and more a contemporary report.

If you compare it to Code Warriors by Stephen Budiansky this comes up really thin and light on the historical and technical content. If you were to pick one go for that instead. ( )
