Inhaltsangabe: A new biography of J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings - voted as 'book of the 20th century'. In this biography the consulting editors put forward a compelling case that Professor Tolkien was not the ivory tower Professor who did little other than suddenly publish two best sellers, but that he had a parallel career in Intelligence. With careful examination of Tolkien's existing biographies and the inadequacies of the explanations given and perpetuated from one biographer to the next, a persuasive picture is built up of what Tolkien may have been involved in over a period of decades. The writings themselves are amongst the most revealing proof of Tolkien's preoccupation with espionage and Intelligence and they are analysed closely and carefully. This biography is ground breaking and overturns decades of held belief. It will mark a start of a new phase in Tolkien criticism that takes the post Cold War era into account.
Über den Autor: The consulting editors Alexander Lewis and Elizabeth Currie are long term members of the Tolkien Society. Mr Lewis has been both Chairman and Secretary and a Trustee of the Tolkien Society during a period of some three decades. With his co author Elizabeth Currie they have written and published three previous books on the works of Tolkien as well as writing many papers and articles and presented papers at international conferences.
