In 1917, the notorious exotic dancer Mata Hari was arrested, tried, and executed for espionage - charged with the deaths of at least 50,000 gallant French soldiers.

In this new biography, Pat Shipman explores the life and times of the mythic and deeply misunderstood dark-eyed siren to find the truth. Was she actually a spy?

Mata Hari's life reads like both an action-packed adventure tale and passionate, poignant romance. Shipman reveals new information about this beautiful, brilliant, and dangerous woman, tracing the web of connections between her professional and personal lives that led to her tragic fall.

Pat Shipman is an anthropologist at Pennsylvania State University.
