Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the most thoughtful, detached and up-to-date primer on the subject ever produced by a recent member of the British intelligence community." The Independent

"...the most thoughtful, detached and up-to-date primer on the subject ever produced by a recent member of the British intelligence community." The Independent

"An excellent work written with enough skill and clarity to be valuable for academic and general readers." J.D. Stempel, Choice

"This is an important book about Anglo-Saxon tradition of intelligence management." Michael I. Handel, The International History Review

"...a grand scale breakthough....No one who is serious about intelligence studies should fail to become familiar with this book." H. Bradford Westerfield, Intelligence and Counterintelligence

"It is a scholarly study and for those readers who want to know about the internal workings of intelligence it provides more fascination than many of the 'cloak and dagger' spy stories. The study of Michael Herman is a very valuable addition to the analytical intelligence literature. It provides a conprehensive overview how intelligence works and functions. As a former intelligence professional, the author knows that not only intelligence but also scolarly results need to be presented in a language which appeals to the novice, the practitioner and scholar alike and he is very gook at this. His thoroughly researched, well-structured, and very readable book is highly recommendable." Newsletter
