MEDIA REVIEWS
"Whether readers are new to the topic of intelligence or are intelligence professionals, this book takes them from A to Z in scope, from basic concepts to specific issues, and from current events intelligence to historically significant incidents in the annals of intelligence. Each part opens with a
succinct, cogent overview, followed by three or four chapters giving detail, perspective, insight, and color to the overarching topic. All the chapters are first rate and exceptionally well suited for inclusion. When so combined, the total value of the book is far greater than the sum of the
individual works. This is a testament to the editors' diligence in locating the selected material and to their expertise in recognizing its quality and applicability."--William J. Daugherty, Armstrong Atlantic State University
"The selections are thoughtful, timely, and provocative. Collectively, they help demystify the world of the spy without sacrificing the excitement and intensity that makes this an interesting subject in the first place. Kudos to the editors for assembling a volume that is so nicely balanced."--Ken
Kitts, Francis Marion University
"This is a superb anthology that includes many of the most important contributions to the literature, but what makes this anthology most useful are the nine chapter-length introductory essays. These essays, along with pedagogical aides such as synopses of each article, a comprehensive bibliography,
charts and diagrams, and two indexes transform this book to a stand-alone text."--Pete Peterson, University of San Diego
