"When Anthony Blunt died in 1983 be was a man about whom almost anything could be - and was - said. He was accused of everything from causing the death of Allied agents during the war to conspiring to suppress the reputation of British art; from blackmailing the Royal Family to paedophilia. He was a blank screen on which fantasy and delusion were projected." "Anthony Blunt: His Lives reveals the man behind the myths and rumours: aesthete, communist, homosexual, spy. As Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures and Director of the Courtauld Institute, Blunt's position as a stellar member of the Establishment had seemed utterly assured. But, in 1979, Margaret Thatcher exposed him as a former Soviet spy, and Blunt was stripped of his knighthood and became a figure of universal opprobrium."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
