Kim and Jim: Kim Philby and James Angleton, Friends and Enemies in the Cold War (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This is an account of the master-spy Philby and CIA boss Angleton primarily in their roles as secret intelligence professionals, and they were two of the most pre-eminent members of that guild.

On the other hand, they had personal lives: parents, friends, spouses, children, and in Philby's case an alternate career, that of a Foreign Correspondent. Both had remarkable fathers, Angleton's a self-made man in the mythologised manner of the American frontier, Philby's an important member, then a critic, of the colonial service of the Raj. These matters are also described, insofar as they are relevant. James Angleton and Kim Philby were friends for six years, or so Angleton thought. They were then enemies for the rest of their lives. Both agreed on that.

Their first meeting had been at Bletchley in 1944. Their relationship was long over when Philby defected to Moscow in 1963. Kim and Jim is the story of their intertwined careers and the effect of those careers on the Cold War. It is a gripping study in friendship and treachery that takes a new approach to a familiar tale of espionage and double-dealing.
