Conspiracy of silence: the secret life of Anthony Blunt
Before Prime Minister Thatcher exposed him in 1979, Sir Anthony Blunt had been a world-class art historian. He was also a core member of the Cambridge Conspiracy, an intelligence operation whose purpose was to recruit young idealists in elite British universities to become covert agents of espionage. The success of Spycatcher (750,000 sold) assures an impressive audience for this title. 24 photos.
