The spin-off of an international conference held in Amsterdam in 1999, this collection includes an introductory essay explaining the importance of signals intelligence in the years after World War II, as well as the reasons that, until now, the field has been virtually ignored by journalists, historians, and other academics. Additional papers shed light on secret Cold War-era intelligence gathering in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, and Indonesia. The papers were first published in a special issue of Intelligence And National Security (spring 2001). Distributed by ISBS.
