Intelligence Policy and National Security

Archon Books, 1981, 318 pp. $32.50 Purchase

A wide-ranging collection of essays by former practitioners and scholars which address a number of critical issues: how to deal with deception and surprise; problems in the verification of strategic arms control agreements; technological uncertainties; the increasing role of economic intelligence; the management of intelligence activities. Although there are too many contributions and some of the essays are too short to deal adequately with their topic, the volume as a whole provides much grist for thought about an important subject rarely well discussed (in a non-sensational manner) in the open literature.
