Spying on Science: Western Intelligence in Divided Germany, 1945-1961

John Paul Maddrell

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The subject of Paul Maddrell's book has a striking resonance for the world today. Maddrell's book is concerned with the proliferation of ‘weapons of mass destruction’—the phrase seems to have been first used during in the Second World War—by enemy states and ‘rogue regimes’; (mis)assessments by western intelligence services of such weapons; and covert attempts by western governments to undermine the development of such weapons programmes. The intrinsic pertinence of Maddrell's book to the world today, combined with the author's research, means that both specialised and non-specialised readers will find it wide-ranging, stimulating and useful.
