INTERCEPT is the previously untold - and previously highly classified - story of the melding of technology and espionage. Gordon Corera's compelling narrative takes us from the First World War to the internet age, with shocking revelations about the extent of espionage carried out today. The computer age was born in secret. Under the intense pressure of the Second World War and in the confines of Britain's code-breaking establishment at Bletchley Park, the work of men like Alan Turing led to the creation of electronic espionage. It was a breakthrough that helped win the war, but it also had a profound effect on today's hyper-connected world. We are living in a second golden age for communications intelligence, in which all the old boundaries are being redrawn. Using his unique access to GCHQ, the NSA, Chinese officials and senior executives from some of the most important companies around the world, Corera has gathered stories from heads of state, hackers and spies of all stripes. INTERCEPT is a ground-breaking exploration of the new space in which the worlds of industrial and individual espionage, geopolitics, diplomacy, science and technology collide.Under the intense pressure of the Second World War and in the confines of Britaina#39;s code-breaking establishment at Bletchley Park, the work of men like Alan Turing led to the creation of electronic espionage.
