Ernest May Fellow Calder Walton Co-edits Landmark History of Espionage

| Dec. 05, 2018

Three volumes are scheduled to publish together in 2022.

Ernest May Fellow in History & Policy Dr. Calder Walton and Christopher Andrew, Emeritus Professor of Modern and Contemporary History at the University of Cambridge are co-editing the three volume Cambridge History of Espionage and Intelligence, which has been commissioned by Cambridge University Press and will be available in print and digital formats. Publication is scheduled for 2022.

Walton and Andrew are heading up an international team that includes historians and ex-intelligence practitioners from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe.

The history intends to show the use of intelligence and intelligence agencies throughout history, from biblical times to the present day; how both intelligence gathering and the use and misuse of intelligence have provided the background to conflicts and international relations throughout history; and how recent global events have shown the way in which modern intelligence-gathering remains an important feature of the international landscape.

Walton's first book was Empire of Secrets. British Intelligence, the Cold War and the Twilight of Empire (Harper-Press 2013).

The Cambridge University Press announcement is available here.
