RARE. A comprehensive study of the history and development of intelligence services and techniques around the world, from the Ancient and Classical periods all the way up to the late Medieval period. The study was commissioned by retired World War II General William "Wild Bill" Donovan, Director of the American OSS (precursor to the CIA), as a groundwork study for his own book on the history of intelligence services. Donovan passed away before the study could be completed. Dvornik`s book was published 15 years after Donovan`s death. 235x160mm, [xvi+334] pp. Maroon cloth hardcover with maroon dust-jacket. [CONDITION:] Dustjacket lightly worn around all edges. Page-block edges very slightly age-stained. [SUMMARY:] Aside from mild wear to the dustjacket, this rare book on the origins of intelligence services is in very good condition.
