This book challenges distinctions between "popular" and "serious" literature by recognizing le Carre as one of the most significant ethicists in contemporary fiction, contributing to an overdue reassessment of his literary stature. Le Carre's ten post-Cold War novels constitute a distinctive subset of his espionage fiction in their response to the momentous changes in geopolitics that began in the 1990s. Through a close reading of these novels, Snyder traces how-amid the "War on Terror" and transnationalism-le Carre weighes what is at stake in this conflict of deeply invested ideologies.
