* A new epilogue analyzing the current state of intelligence
* Updated introductions at the beginning of each piece that help to contextualize chapter content
* Discussion questions at the end of each chapter that reinforce key concepts and encourage class participation
* Comprehensive coverage of many hot topics including the history of intelligence; how the U.S. gathers and interprets global information; the meaning of security intelligence; methods of intelligence collection; intelligence analysis; the danger of intelligence politicization; relationships between intelligence officers and the policymakers they serve; covert action; counterintelligence; accountability and civil liberties; the implications of major intelligence failures in 2001 and 2003; and intelligence as practiced in other nations

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Intelligence—The Secret World of Spies takes a comprehensive view, with the readings pegged to the major components of U.S. intelligence. I cannot wait to use the reorganized and updated fourth edition. I do and will recommend this book to colleagues. I describe it as the best general reader on U.S. intelligence available out there. Johnson and Wirtz get it right, as usual."—Michael A. Turner, University of San Diego

"The chapters are all relevant and timely. This book is an important text for students who either want to go into intelligence as a career or seek a graduate degree in this field. I have already recommended this book to many colleagues teaching national security and statecraft. An excellent choice."—Kamal A. Beyoghlow, American University
