Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-This succinctly written, no-nonsense introduction to the business of espionage looks at the history of intelligence gathering from the Revolutionary War to the present, including brief information on specific agents who have affected history. Topics include methods of collecting intelligence, recruiting, "tradecraft" or operational methods, the future of spying, and personality traits and education needed for a successful case officer. This is a useful source for reports and debates, as well as interesting reading for fans of espionage novels and movies who want to know what it's really like. Some of the Web sites appended are difficult to access, but there are some fascinating resources included. Louise I. Gerdes's Espionage and Intelligence Gathering (Greenhaven, 2004), which deals with controversial issues concerning intelligence, is a good complement.-Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, OR Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
