Join Plymouth Athenaeum for this online lecture as Professor Richard Handy FRSB from the University of Plymouth discusses the espionage for new science and technology, and the Nazi-Soviet Pact.
Richard is an internationally respected scientist, editor, and author of technology-led spy thrillers. He has more than 30 years of experience in publishing and is a leading expert on the safety of new technologies, including nanotechnology. His spy thriller series, set in the 1930s and 1940s, involves the escapades of Danny Nash of the British Secret Intelligence Service.
His most recent novel, The Wolfsberg Deception, explores the clandestine deals made in the Nazi-Soviet Pact on advanced technology and the shared secrets aimed at undermining British Intelligence and the Allies.
Richard takes us on a journey through the real history, science, and technology that inspired his novels, with a focus on skulduggery taking place between Germany, Russia and the British in Iran – events that still echo through the politics and troubles of the Middle East today, including the rise of ISIS and other extremist groups.
Join Plymouth Athenaeum for a fascinating and entertaining dip into history, science and creative writing to find out what’s really going on in the world...
