Summary
Revolutionary, spy, missionary, and conman, Trebitsch Lincoln was one of the most bizarre figures in modern history. A juvenile criminal in his native Hungary, he emigrated to Canada in 1900 as a missionary in Montreal and then became, successively, Anglican curate in Kent, Liberal Member of the British Parliament, German agent in both world wars, outlaw in the USA, member of the 1920 right-wing German military government, conspirator in the "White International," adviser to warlords in China, and Buddhist abbot in Shanghai. Historian Bernard Wasserstein unraveled the career of the many-faceted Trebitsch Lincoln by unearthing police reports, intelligence files, and diplomatic dispatches from more than a dozen countries and integrating them with numerous other archival documents and unpublished papers, to create a striking portrait of an enigmatic man. Trebitsch bamboozled many, including Lloyd George, Himmler and J. Edgar Hoover, and his life story mirrors the unquiet spirit of his age.--From publisher description
