Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An intelligence veteran of more than 30 years, Lowenthal details how the intelligence community's history, structure, procedures, and functions affect policy decisions in significant ways. With his clear, succinct writing and friendly prose, he demystifies the constantly changing world of intelligence in this best-selling text.

Book News Annotation:

This book is intended to provide an understanding of the role of intelligence in creating national security policy and the strengths and weaknesses of the intelligence community. The primary theme of this book, now in its fourth edition, is that intelligence is subservient to policy and that it is most analytically and operationally effective when it works within distinct policy goals. Topics include the development of U.S. intelligence and the U.S. intelligence community, counterintelligence and covert action, oversight and accountability, intelligence reform, and ethical, moral, and transnational issues. Author Lowenthal is a former intelligence official and currently an educator and CEO of a national security training, education, and consulting company.
