Engberg, a former staff writer for Fortune magazine and one-time managing editor of Buslness International, provides a sharp and highly readable discussion of the art of industrial espionage. He also discusses industrial espionage in the context of the broader issue of the individual’s right to privacy. The author details all the basic weapons included in the arsenal of the corporate spy engaged in the modern science of purloining business secrets, and discusses the countermeasures available—a sort of counter-industrial espionage. A definitive work encompassing the entire story from crude beginnings to the present state as well as its broader implications.
