Woods (history and military studies, American Public U. System) traces the evolution of the spy novel genre from James Fenimore Cooper's The Spy: A Tale of Neutral Ground to the contemporary writings of John Le Carré. He describes the genre's evolution against the backdrop of real geopolitical events, highlighting the nature of the spy novel as a blending (or neutral ground perhaps) of fact and fiction.
