com User, May 10, 2000. John Wortman . The Fine Art of Spying is a collection of true, and truly amazing, stories written by Somerset Maugham, Anthony Abbott, Winston Churchill, Fletcher Pratt, Alan Hynd, Kurt Singer, and other famous authors. This book is a most excellent read. It is good for people casually interested in espionage and those with more background in it. One of the most overlooked areas was the periods between the world wars and the late 19th Century which is well treated. It is also written in a fast paced style that is never boring. I highly recommend this book.

SPYING FOR AMERICA The Hidden History of . But later as what Nathan Miller calls ''America's first spymaster,'' he confused British foes during the Revolutionary War by adroitly planting false information. In one instance he instructed his officers to prepare grossly inflated reports on troop strength and let a British spy snatch them from American quarters. The British consequently decided against immediate attack. Such superior spy work often allowed the outnumbered Continental Army to choose its conflicts and defeat better-trained British forces in pivotal battles.

Although Miller grandiosely claims that this is the first attempt to survey two centuries of American intelligence efforts within a national framework, not much is new here, though it's nice to have it tidily in one place. Miller covers the "Tub Plot"; Pinkerton's Hattie Lawton; the Van Lew Ladies (especially Mary Elizabeth Bowser, who's interesting enough to have her own book); Lewis and Clark's "covert military foray": and Lincoln's personal spy William Lloyd.

Miller picks his losers by asking, How badly did they damage the nation they were supposed to serve?

For example, he indicts Silent Cal Coolidge with Mencken’s faint praise: He had no ideas, and was not a nuisance. Those of us who favor limited government see it differently. Miller picks his losers by asking, How badly did they damage the nation they were supposed to serve? What’s strange, then, is that the presidents he selects were mostly peacetime leaders who did little perceptible damage to the Republic and its institutions. Take Coolidge, whom Miller writes off as a reluctant refugee from the nineteenth century.

It is obvious in the first three chapters of this book that there is no original research here. It is simply a matter of going to the library and regurgitating what was already written in secondary sources. Other author's conjectures about the Revolutionary war spying story are simply repeated here, so accurately that one can tell which books they are taken from. It would be permissible to copy the historical fact, but when the old myths and conjecture of past researchers are repeated here as well, along with the fact, that is unacceptable.
