Near Fine/Near Fine. 1st Printing. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 367pp. The first history of secret police around the world.Many books have been written about spies, but few, perhaps none, about secret police. Rob Stove tells the story of Elizabeth Is Walsingham, Napoleons Fouche, and the secret police chiefs of the Russian tsars, Lenin and Stalin, and Hitler. The book finishes with J Edgar Hoover. The interest lies in the strange personalities of these chiefs, who built their organisations and shaped them according to their own warped personalities. Bookseller Inventory # 003394
Reseña del editor: Denis Boyles examines the internal crises that have changed the personality of what was once La Belle France, transforming it into a nation afflicted with status anxiety. "Vile France" is a work that will gratify Francophobes everywhere and cause even the most committed defender of the Jacques Chirac worldview to crack an occasional smile.
