Product Description & Reviews

Provides a compelling study of the life and career of Richard Sorge, who entered Soviet intelligence in 1920 and led a life of espionage for the Russians in the Tokyo Spy Ring, where he was embraced by the Germans as a Nazi journalist. Dr. Richard Sorge, writes British journalist Robert Whymant, deserves to be considered "one of the most successful spies in modern history." The grand-nephew of a close comrade of Karl Marx, Sorge became an active member of the German Communist Party after being wounded in World War I. Having moved to Moscow, he then worked in the Soviet intelligence service, returning to Germany in the early 1930s. Securing work as a journalist after passing himself off as a supporter of the Nazi regime, Sorge traveled to China and then to Japan, where he became a confidant of German and Japanese businessmen and diplomats. The information he gathered from these contacts he sent on to Moscow. He eventually recruited a small circle of Japanese and European associates, and his spy ring operated successfully under the noses of the redoubtable Japanese secret service. Despite the reliability of his reports, Whymant notes, Sorge's intelligence was often dismissed--as when he warned that the Germans were planning to invade the Soviet Union. When the Germans did indeed invade, however, his stock rose, even if Stalin doubted Sorge's assurances that the Japanese would not join their German allies in attacking eastern Russia. The Japanese finally arrested Sorge in 1941, and three years later he was hanged for espionage, along with most of his confederates. Whymant's gripping account makes a powerful case for their being regarded as heroes in the antifascist cause. --Gregory McNamee

The Legend of Mar Qardagh: Narrative and Christian Heroism in Late Antique Iraq
By University of California Press
ean: 9780520245785, isbn: 0520245784,
This pioneering study uses an early seventh-century Christian martyr legend to elucidate the culture and society of late antique Iraq. Translated from Syriac into English here for the first time, the legend of Mar Qardagh introduces a hero of epic proportions whose characteristics confound simple classification. During the several stages of his career, Mar Qardagh hunts like a Persian King, argues like a Greek philosopher, and renounces his Zoroastrian family to live with monks high in the

The Macedonian State: Origins, Institutions, and History (Clarendon Paperbacks)
By N G L Hammond
mpn: line figures, 1 chart, 1 colour folding, ean: 9780198149279, isbn: 0198149271,
In 338 B.C. Philip II of Macedon established Macedonian rule over Greece. He was succeeded in 336 B.C. by his son Alexander the Great, whose conquests during the next twelve years reached as far as the Russian steppes, Afghanistan, and the Punjab, thus creating the Hellenistic world. Based on his earlier work, a first-ever comprehensive history of ancient Macedonia, this abridgement now provides, in one volume, a history of the Macedonian State from early times to 167 B.C.
