Overview

"In this study, Gregory Treverton, former Vice Chair of the National Intelligence Council and Senate investigator, offers his insider's view on how intelligence gathering and analysis must change. He suggests why intelligence needs to be both contrarian, leaning against the conventional wisdom, and attentive to the longer term, leaning against the shrinking time horizons of Washington policy makers. He urges that the solving of intelligence puzzles taps expertise outside government - in the academy, think tanks, and Wall Street - to make these parties full colleagues and co-consumers of intelligence, befitting the changed role of government from doer to convener, mediator, and coalition-builder."--BOOK JACKET.
