Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-This book attempts to look at both sides of such issues as the importance of U.S. intelligence gathering abroad, how much leeway the government has under the Patriot Act, and if better intelligence and operations could have prevented 9/11. A few of the articles delve into the history of our numerous intelligence agencies and how earlier policy changes may have caused a breakdown in our communication abilities that could have exacerbated 9/11. For the most part, researchers with little background will find the material readable, but one can get quickly bogged down in the acronym soup inherent in this subject. This is a useful book because of its hard-hitting, current essays.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
