pdf epub fb2 djvu



This revised edition of the classic guide Silent Warfare accounts for recent earth-shaking world events -- the breakup of the Soviet empire, for example -- and for the most recent laws and thinking on the new dimensions of intelligence. It remains the only intelligence primer.

Shulsky and Schmitt, leading intelligence scholars and government experts, write clearly and for the nonexpert in this first comprehensive overview of the elements of intelligence designed for both the students and the general reader. A guide to the principles of collection, analysis, counterintelligence, and covert action and to their interrelationship with policymakers and democratic values, Silent Warfare provides a useful framework for understanding today's altered intelligence world as well as the future. It is an informative book for anyone intrigued by the shadowy world of the spy or concerned with security threats, terrorism, or economic espionage.
