In 1990 the Berlin Wall fell and the East German security service folded. By that time, they had over a billion documents detailing the lives of their citizens. Overnight, almost a hundred thousand Stasi employees, many of them experienced officers with access to highly personal ...information and an axe to grind, found themselves unemployed. This is the story of what they did next. Former FBI Agent Ralph Hope uses critical insider knowledge and access to Stasi records to track and expose ex-officers of the East German Secret Police from the Russian energy sector to New York start-ups. He examines why the key players have never been called to account and, in doing so, asks whether we have really learned from the past at all. The Grey Men comes as an urgent warning from the past at a time when governments the world over are building an unprecedented network of surveillance over their citizens.
