Readings will include classics such as Sun Tzu’s Art of War, Machiavelli’s Prince, and Discourses.
As a principal text, Fair Play: The Moral Dilemmas of Spying, will provide historical and philosophical insight as well as a series of real-life scenarios that test permissible actions, questioning the extent to which “the end justifies the means.”
