A brand new edition of this fascinating book on MI5 intelligence operations. Updated and expanded with brand new material on the War on Terrorism, such as insider reports on the Bali Bombing as well as MI5's tragic lack of intelligence surrounding September 11, and how it was regarded as a massive intelligence failure.
Both authors are well-regarded broadsheet reporters, well-connected and leading experts in the field. 'Defending The Realm' provides a rare insight into the secret world of MI5 and breaks new ground in revealing covert techniques. This new edition also provides a profile of MI5's new female director, Hon. Eliza Manningham-Buller.
