Butcher, Tim. "Israeli Hero 'Was Spy Who Betrayed Jews.'" Telegraph (London), 31 Mar. 2007. [http://www.telegraph.co.uk]
"Teddy Kollek,... mayor of Jerusalem for almost 30 years, fed sensitive information to MI5 when Britain ran Palestine under a League of Nations mandate. Evidence of Kollek's secret past has been disclosed in documents discovered at the Public Record Office in Kew by ... an investigative journalist working for the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper.... [I]t appears he only gave information in as much as it served the Jewish Agency's side in the fratricidal conflict with the hardliners."

Clark comment: This appears to be a fantasy. http://www.cloakanddagger.com/ dagger: The author claimed to be "a member of Churchill's secret circle with more than 50 behind-the-lines infiltrations in France; she was captured, tortured and escaped to work with a group of Resistance fighters." Wiant, Studies 46.2 (2002), reviewing Nigel West's Counterfeit Spies (1998), comments that Butler "made up dozens of missions into occupied territory."

Byers, Andy J. The Imperfect Spy: The Inside Story of a Convicted Spy. St. Petersbueg, FL: Vandamere, 2005.
Keiser, Proceedings 132.3 (Mar. 2006), says the author "has written a remarkable history of [George] Trofimoff's background and life as a spy.... The Imperfect Spy is a good read." For Peake, Studies 50.3 (Sep. 2006) and Intelligencer 15.2 (Fall-Winter 2006-2007), the author "tells an awful story well." The story of why Trofimoff did what he did, "how he worked for his foster brother, a KGB agent; and the damage he inflicted makes exciting reading. The Imperfect Spy is a distressing story, but a worthy contribution to counterintelligence literature."

Constantinides sees this book as a "paean of praise to British naval intelligence" that is lacking in authoritative sources. "The successes the authors claim for naval intelligence of the prewar period seem exaggerated in the light of later evidence."
