Dr Paul Maddrell publishes an article on assassination in The Conversation

The piece by Dr Paul Maddrell, Lecturer in International History and International Relations, explores 'the new age of assassination'.

Paul is currently researching into the history of the security and intelligence services of the former Communist Bloc, above all the East German Stasi and the Soviet KGB. Previously, he researched into the history of British and other Western intelligence agencies during the Cold War. This research led to his monograph, Spying on Science: Western Intelligence in Divided Germany, 1945-1961 (Oxford University Press, 2006). 

His article in The Conversation highlights:  

“Assassination is as old as politics itself. But the increase in terrorism and the spread of the technology and know-how for the development of weapons of mass destruction are increasing its use.”
