GORDON THOMAS SECRET WARS: ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF BRITISH INTELLIGENCE (St. Martin’s Press, 2009)

By Dr. Joseph Fitsanakis

Note: Dr. Joseph Fitsanakis (joe [at] intelNews.org) teaches politics, history and intelligence at King College, USA. He is Senior Editor at www.intelNews.org.

Gordon Thomas’ Secret Wars (St. Martin’s Press, 2009), whose publication coincides with the centennial year of Britain’s intelligence and security services, is a useful historical narrative of MI5 and MI6. The book’s strength rests on Thomas’ skilled storytelling, which, coupled with some interesting new information, will appeal to both popular enthusiasts and scholarly devotees of intelligence history. The latter, however, will have to overcome the surprising absence of any source notes in the book. Thomas attempts to make up for this by naming approximately half of his primary information sources. Noticeably, however, of the author’s 44 named primary sources, 12 are Israelis and only 11 are British.

Mr. Kyriakopoulos Konstantinos (Journalist) contributed to RIEAS the following research articles: Illegal Trade (in Greek) and Children’s Sexual Abuse (in Greek).

We are inviting Classical Scholars (Historians, Archaeologists) to examine the evidence on the history of Macedonia. The dispute between two countries for the name "Macedonia" brought up misinformation and inaccuracies concerning ancient Macedonia and its king Alexander the Great. The scholarly community has a duty to preserve historic truth. An example of what we would like is the evidence presented in the "articles" section. Read more.
