Espionage: Books and Movies

ID : 559   
« back to classes page
Join us again this spring for another round of espionage books and movies. In this session, we will look at spy stories from World War II and the Cold War. We will continue our previous format of watching the movie first, and then discussing both the book and the movie, although we reserve the right to put a little twist on the format if the mood strikes us. The books/movies we will use are: Assignment in Brittany by Helen MacInnes; The Manchurian Candidate by Richard Condon; The Quiller Memorandum by Adam Hall; Funeral in Berlin by Eric Ambler; The Odessa File by Frederic Forsyth and Hopscotch by Brian Garfield. The books may\be read in any edition and are available from Amazon or in libraries. In addition to discussing the books and authors themselves, we will dig into the ethical, strategic and tactical aspects of spying that these stories suggest, as well as look at how intelligence gathering has changed with technology, but somehow has stayed the same.
