Regency Spies: Secret Histories of Britain’s Rebels and Revolutionaries
Pen and Sword, 2016
An adorable book about the period when democracy and liberty were still regarded as dubious in Europe. Sue Wilkes reveals the shadowy world of Britain’s spies, rebels and secret societies from the late 1780s until 1820.
I am delighted she agreed to write an insightful guest post about the secret means of communication used by spies in the late 18th century. You can read “Burn after Reading: Spying Secrets of the Regency Period – Guest Post by Sue Wilkes” here.
