The world is in flux. Competition between the great powers has heightened and governments around the world are increasingly turning to secret statecraft to give them an edge over their rivals.

This is covert action: perhaps the most sensitive – and controversial – of all state activity. Rory Cormac reveals how such activity is stealthily shaping the world we live in today.
