We discover the history of espionage from its origins until today. We shed light on episodes lying in the dark and show the importance of women in the world of espionage. Far more than just Matahari. Economic espionage, the cold war. Former top agents tell stories of their greatest achievements and give a prospect on the 21st century. Explanations of philosophers and statesmen show us new connections and perspectives.
