Spies in Time

How have spying and intelligence activities influenced the course of history? Investigate case studies of how great powers have used spies in war and peace. This program traces the history of spying from the Dreyfus case in France (1894-1906) to the Aldrich Ames case in the U.S. (1980s and 1990s). Douglas Wheeler focuses the discussion on how human motives, traits, and ideas shape the search for secret information and how that information is used and misused in international affairs.
