A 'How to' manual of spies, espionage, and other intelligence activities. As the Spymaster-General of Fredonia, you are given advice, practical examples, and historical incidents in order for you to build an effective intelligence agency. Tradecraft (how to do things), recruiting agents (what do you look for in a good spy?), building networks of couriers and assets, and definitions of terms used by most other intelligence agencies. (SIGINT, HUMINT, and more...) Along with accounts by real spies and several cartoons. Something for everyone except an actual intelligence agent, who ought to know all of this already. ( )
