The Scientist and the Spy


Journalist and Pulitzer Prize finalist for Unnatural Selection, Mara Hvistendahl's The Scientist and the Spy is a look at global corporate espionage that combines history, research, and new reporting to explore how ideas and experts move easily across borders; the role espionage plays in innovation and development; whether current counter-espionage strategies actually help; and effective solutions to the legitimate problems of trade secret theft.
