Read in July, 2011

Ignatius writes a brilliant spy novel. He begins with a John Milton quote 'First, you push on your territories, where you have no business to be, and where you had promised not to go; secondly, your intrusion provokes resentment, and resentment means resistance. Thirdly, you instantly cry out that the people are rebellious and their act is rebellion . . . . The story ends with the suggestion that wars are not won. Either both sides weary of the war or one side runs out of money. Either way, the residual is anger.
