They say the two trades share much of the same allure: Money, secrecy, sex, great public interest, and peoples reputations--or lack thereof--are involved in both professions. Spies are probably the objects of greater curiosity, given their proximity to the corridors of power. And now Polmar and Allen have come up with a compendium that informs on the informers, from A-2 (the intelligence staff of the U.S. Army Air Corps) to Zelle, Margaretha (Mata Haris real name). More than 2,000 entries deliver the scoop on agencies, operations, jargon, technology, and even such fictional figures as James Bond.
