This edited volume brings together many of the world's leading scholars of intelligence with a number of former senior practitioners to facilitate a wide-ranging dialogue on the central challenges confronting students of intelligence.

The book presents a series of documents, nearly all of which are published here for the first time, accompanied by both overview and commentary sections. The central objectives of this collection are twofold. First, it seeks to build on existing scholarship on intelligence in deepening our understanding of its impact on a series of key events in the international history of the past century. Further, it aims to explore the different ways in which intelligence can be studied by bringing together both scholarly and practical expertise to examine a range of primary material relevant to the history of intelligence since the early twentieth century.

This book will be of great interest to students of intelligence, strategic and security studies, foreign policy and international history.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This volume is a welcome addition to the intelligence bookshelf, particularly for use in the university classroom. It is unique in three ways: firstly, in the range of topics that are covered; secondly, in the wide variety of established expertise it brings to bear on a range of primary sources; thirdly, and above all, in the unprecedented access it provides to hitherto unpublished archival material.'

Dr Jennifer Siegel, Ohio State University

'An ideal introduction to the serious study of secret intelligence and the use made of it over the last century: well-chosen case studies with key documents and stimulating commentary. Essential reading for every intelligence studies course.'

Prof. Christopher Andrew, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge
