About this event

A Brief History of Espionage

This series will cover the dark arts of covert and clandestine operations in the form of election interference, regime changes and assassinations. We will look briefly at the pre-modern evolution of espionage but focus primarily on the 20th and 21st centuries and the founding and operations of the adversarial American, Russian and British intelligence agencies, with some secondary coverage of German, Canadian and Israeli intelligence history.
