Peter Hamilton (born 1917) was a security consultant and author of the 1967 book, Espionage and subversion in an industrial society: an examination and philosophy of defence for management.[1]

Zeus Security

Hamilton was Managing Director of Zeus Private Security Ltd [2] which was hired in 1983 to spy on anti-nuclear activists opposing the construction of the Sizewell B nuclear power station. According to the Guardian, Zeus Security Consultants was originally set up with money from James Goldsmith. [3] Lord Chalfont was according to the Guardian, a board member of Zeus Security from 1981 to July 1983. [4] Chalfont’s Who’s Who entry states only that he joined the board of Peter Hamilton (Security Consultants) Ltd in 1984, which may in fact be the same company, since according to Companies House records, Peter Hamilton (Security Consultants) Ltd was until September 1983 known as Zeus Security Consultants Ltd.
