Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

Agent, double agent, charmer and traitor, Kim Philby betrayed the most secret Anglo-American operations in the early years of the Cold War. This is a story of trust and treachery, class and conscience; of an idealogical battle between friends, exquisitely polite and perfectly ruthless, waged in the comfortable clubs and restaurants of London and Washington; of male friendships forged, and then systematically betrayed. Told with access to newly released M15 files and

previously unseen family papers. 'A Spy Among Friends ' is a story of the monumental deception which defined the Cold War espionage battle and sent hundreds to their deaths. The astonishing life of Kim Philby, the most notorious British defector and Soviet mole in history, is a tale of political loyalty and personal duplicity; a chilling examination of how far anyone can ever really know another human being. 240 x 155mm., pp. xii, 352, notes, bibliography, index. Hard cover in dust jacket. Contents, SIGNED by BEN MACINTYRE on Title page, no other inscriptions; dust jacket, light creasing top/bottom spine. NEAR FINE.
