Shadow State

11.50

Based on years of investigations, Luke Harding reveals how Russian spies helped to sway the 2016 US presidential elections in favour of Trump and backed the campaign which resulted in Brexit, and how they lied, deceived, and murdered to do so. From Salisbury to Helsinki, Washington to the Ukraine, the Kremlin has attempted to reshape politics in their own mould; the future of Western democracy is at stake as a result.

No terrorist group has deployed a nerve agent in a civilian area or used a radioactive mini-bomb in London. The Kremlin has done both.

Shadow State is a riveting and alarming investigation into the methods Russia has used to wage an increasingly bold war in the UK and beyond. In this updated edition, featuring a new afterword, award-winning journalist and bestselling author Luke Harding uncovers fake news, cyber intrusions, dirty money and ruthless spies in disguise, showing how Vladimir Putin helped elect Donald Trump, backed Brexit, and now threatens the very basis of Western democracy itself.

‘A superb piece of work . . . essential reading for anyone who cares for his country.’
JOHN LE CARRÉ, on Collusion
