Abram N. Shulsky was a senior fellow at the National Strategy Information Center in Washington when he wrote Silent Warfare. He currently serves in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. Gary J. Schmitt was also a senior fellow at the National Strategy Information Center while preparing the second edition of this book. He has served as executive director of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board and as minority staff director of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.From Library Journal:
Intended as a textbook to contribute to the academic study of this specialized field, this work also aims to counter some of the more alarmist and anti-intelligence books available. In eight chapters it explains the concepts, philosophies, and procedures of intelligence-gathering analysis and management. It examines how intelligence was used in various historical situations to explain a government's actions. It shows the importance of an individual's personality at every step of the process, particularly when it comes to acting on available intelligence. This easy-to-read-and-understand book should be considered by academic and large public libraries and those collections that support courses in security studies.
