Overview

The Handbook of Intelligence Studies examines the central topics in the study of intelligence organizations and activities. The volume opens with a look at how scholars approach this particularly difficult field of study. It then defines and analyses the three major missions of intelligence: collection-and-analysis; covert action; and counterintelligence. Within each of these missions, some of the most prominent authors in the field dissect the so-called intelligence cycle to reveal the challenges of gathering and assessing information from around the world. Covert action, the most controversial intelligence activity, is explored in detail, with special attention given to the issue of military organizations moving into what was once primarily a civilian responsibility. The contributions also cover the problems associated with protecting secrets from foreign spies and terrorist organizations: the arcane but important mission of counterintelligence. The book pays close attention to the question of intelligence accountability, that is, how a nation can protect its citizens against the possible abuse of power by its own secret agencies - known as 'oversight' in the English-speaking world.

This volume provides a comprehensive and up-to-date examination of the state of the field and will constitute an invaluable source of information to professionals working in intelligence and professors teaching intelligence courses, as well as to students and citizens who want to know more about the hidden side of government and their nation's secret foreign policies.
