Abstract

This book, written in remarkably short order between March and October 2020, offers a highly
sophisticated theorisation of the central problem of our time: intelligence crime. This is transnational
crime committed by shadowy actors in the highest echelons of power who know how to manipulate
national security apparatuses to advance agendas that benefit themselves while inflicting near
unimaginable harm on others. Committed on a scale almost defying comprehension, yet somehow
remaining ‘invisible’, unpunished and under-analysed, intelligence crime and the means of its
concealment have attracted far too little scholarly attention. In Blurring Intelligence Crime, Willem de Lint
makes a vital contribution to remedying that problem.
