Crystal Visions Enrichment Program

A member of the faculty of Florida Gulf Coast University's Renaissance Academy and elected a member of the British Royal Society of Health, he has published more than a hundred articles on history and culture in professional journals as well as American Heritage, Forbes, American Legacy, The Washington Post and The L.A. Times. He has been a commentator on The History Channel and is an enthusiastically received destination lecturer who brings history to life with stories of the people and events that changed the world.

Special Interest Lecturer: Intelligence Historian

Nigel West (London, England)
Nigel West is a renowned military historian specializing in intelligence, counterintelligence, and security issues. His many books include At Her Majesty's Secret Service: The Chiefs of Britain's Intelligence Agency, MI6, Historical Dictionary of World War II Intelligence, and Historical Dictionary of Ian Fleming’s James Bond. His latest book is Historical Dictionary of Signals Intelligence. The Sunday Times has commented: “His information is so precise that many people believe he is the unofficial historian of the secret services. His books are peppered with deliberate clues to potential front-page stories.” During 1987-1997, Mr. West was a Member of the House of Commons, representing a parliamentary constituency in Devon, contributing to official secrets legislation and the statutes authorizing the security and intelligence services. He is currently European Editor of the Washington, D.C. based International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence and a lecturer at the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies in Alexandria, VA.
