From the Publisher"Gill and Phythian describe Intelligence in an Insecure World as an 'informative and relevant introduction' but it is much more than this. They have produced a unique study of the state of the intelligence world, ranging widely over the whole system, using a remarkable range of sources and maintaining a level of critical analysis that is as impressive as it is unusual. This is an important and timely book that has a particular value in the manner in which it addresses the many issues concerning the conduct of intelligence in the post 9/11 era."
—Paul Rogers, University of Bradford
"Peter Gill and Mark Phythian have combined their considerable scholarly talents and expertise. The result is surely one of the best books published on intelligence since the tragic failures of the secret services associated with the 9/11 attacks and the incorrect assessments about unconventional weapons in Iraq. No one interested in understanding what went wrong and what we can do to avoid future intelligence disasters will want to miss this persuasively argued new book."
—Loch K. Johnson, University of Georgia
