Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius, University of Tennessee, Knoxville.Summary: For thousands of years, espionage and covert operations have been powerful but shadowy forces. Much of world history has been shaped by the dramatic exploits of men, women, and organizations devoted to the perilous tasks and undercover missions that are part of a spy's life. Consider that covert operations have played critical roles in epic conflicts such as the Trojan War, the Crusades, World War II, and the War on Terror; political upheavals such as the American, French, and Russian revolutions; and even cultural moments such as the quest to colonize the New World, the 19th-century expansion of empires, and the race to build the world's first atomic bomb. In this course Professor Liulevicius asks and answers tough questions about espionage, and probes intriguing issues and debates about a world that few truly understand.
