Roger Faligot’s Chinese Spies from Chairman Mao to Xi Jinping is a fascinating story of Chinese intelligence services, tracing their trajectory from limited beginnings after the formation of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in 1921 to their current elaborate structures and wide range of clandestine activities. Mr Faligot’s book is packed with considerable detail, not all of which may be of interest to a general reader.
