Throughout history, governments have used covert methods to obtain political and military intelligence to outfox the enemy at home and abroad. The public needs and wants protection, but how far should secret intelligence be allowed to go in a democratic society? Former Director of GCHQ David Omand (Principled Spying) and international security expert Richard Aldrich (The Black Door) explore the fascinating world of espionage past and present, and consider the everchanging relationship between spying and the state with Oliver Balch.
