FIF 122 Espionage In The Cold War And Beyond




Course Description

Espionage in the Cold War. The phrase conjures up images of 'Reds under the beds", the Iron Curtain, double agents and 'spies who came in from the cold' in the best tradition of spy novels and Hollywood movies. Yet behind the fiction are true tales of espionage which are significant in helping to explain political events in the post World War II world. Join us as we explore the true stories behind several key episodes of this era, from the well known, such as the Cambridge Five and the Cuban Missile Crisis, to lesser known stories such as the Iranian hostage crisis and the fate of Herbert Norman. When it comes to espionage, the truth is often not only stranger but also more compelling than even the best fiction.
