Ethics of Spying: A Reader for the Intelligence Professional by Jan Goldman

Intelligence Professionals are employees of the government who work in a business that some would consider unethical-the business of spying. Ethics of Spying looks at the dilemmas that exist when someone is asked to perform a civil service that is in conflict with what that person believes to be ethical. It is the first publication to offer essays, articles, and speeches demonstrating the complex moral dilemmas inherent in intelligence collection, analysis, and operations. Some are recently declassified and never before published, and all are written by authors whose backgrounds are as varied as their insights, including Robert M. Gates, former director of the CIA; John P. Langan, the Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Professor of Catholic Social Thought at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University; and Loch K. Johnson, Regents Professor of Political Science at the University of Georgia and recipient of the Owens Award, for his contribution to the understanding of U.S. intelligence activities.

This is a valuable collection of literature for any intelligence professional-providing the building blocks for creating an ethical code that is not dependent on a specific agency, department, or country. Managers, supervisors, and employees at all levels of intelligence operations should read this book. By filling in the gap between warfare and philosophy, Ethics of Spying creates the foundation for the study of ethics and intelligence.
