Spies Of The Empire

Original title: Espías del imperio
Category: Non-Fiction | History
Synopsis:

A history of the Spanish secret services in the time of the Hapsburgs.

One of the sequels of the anti-Spanish Black Legend is the disdainful opinion of the performance of the Spanish intelligence services in the centuries of “imperial” apogee. In fact, Spanish espionage was at the forefront of the world during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This book gathers the history and the most outstanding facts of Spanish intelligence and of many of its shadow agents (some as well known as Quevedo or Cervantes), who operated successfully in Europe and the Mediterranean.
