Overview

Words of Intelligence: An Intelligence Professional's Lexicon for Domestic and Foreign Threats / Edition 2

Words of Intelligence: An Intelligence Professional's Lexicon for Domestic and Foreign Threats is intended for the intelligence and national security men and women at all levels: local, state, and federal. The intelligence community has undergone massive changes since it was fully developed after World War II. Intelligence work is composed of several functions, including the planning, collection, analysis, and production of information, which provide the life-blood of its existence. Over time, intelligence work has become professionalized, requiring expertise exhibited in its terminology. In the post 9/11 era, the intelligence community has expanded, requiring the transmission of information to state and local public administrators, health officials, and transportation planners in times of a possible domestic attack. In clear and easy terms, this revised edition contains over twice as many terms related to theoretical, conceptual, and organizational aspects of intelligence as the original edition. This lexicon explains terms that relate to intelligence operations, intelligence strategies, security classifications, obscure names of intelligence boards and organizations, and methodologies used to produce intelligence analysis. This dictionary is an invaluable tool for those requiring a working knowledge of intelligence-related issues from both a foreign intelligence perspective as well as a local perspective for law enforcement officials. It includes a topical index and extensive cross references to assist the reader in finding, understanding, and exploring the intelligence community and the intelligence process.
