9780742540392: Intelligence and the National Security Strategist: Enduring Issues and Challenges

Intelligence and the National Security Strategist: Enduring Issues and Challenges presents students with a useful anthology of published articles from diverse sources as well as original contributions to the study of intelligence. The collection includes classic perspectives from the history of warfare, views on the evolution of U.S. intelligence, and studies on the delicate balance between the need for information-gathering and the values of democratic societies. It also includes succinct discussions of complex issues facing the Intelligence Community, such as the challenges of technical and clandestine collection, the proliferation of open sources, the problems of deception and denial operations, and the interaction between the Intelligence Community and the military. Several timely chapters examine the role of the intelligence analyst in support of the national security policymaker. Rounding out the volume are appendices on the legislative underpinnings of our national intelligence apparatus.

About the Author:

Roger Z. George has recently joined the Sherman Kent Center, part of the CIA University's Sherman Kent School for Intelligence Analysis. He completed a 3-year teaching assignment at the National War College, where he served as the DCI's Faculty Representative from 2001-2004. Dr. George has been a career intelligence analyst at CIA for 25 years and is a member of the Senior Analytic Service (SAS). He has also served as a Policy Planning Staff member in the Department of State from 1989-91, was the National Intelligence Officer for Europe from 1991-1995, and was the Director of the Policy and Analysis Group for the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, from 1995-1997. Dr. George received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Occidental College in 1971 and his Ph.D in International Relations from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in 1977. He has taught International Politics at Brandeis University, Occidental College, UC Santa Cruz and was a post-doctoral research fellow at Stanford University prior to government service. Robert D. Kline is currently working as an independent consultant after recently retiring from the U.S. Department of Defense, where he served for more than 25 years as a senior executive. He was on the faculty of the National Defense University from 2000-2003, and taught in the Department of National Security Strategy at the National War College. Prior to serving at the Department of Defense, Mr. Kline was a senior analyst at the U.S. General Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress, where he also served on the staff of a Member of Congress. Mr. Kline is a native of Washington, D.C. His undergraduate work was in Political Science and History at the University of Maryland, College Park, and he holds graduate degrees from both the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University. He is also a graduate of the Federal Executive Institute.

Review:

An extraordinarily rich collection, covering almost every topic likely to be featured in any college, graduate, or professional school course concerning intelligence. (Ernest May)

The anthology provides an excellent baseline for educating any analyst or consumer, new or experienced, on many of the issues consistently at play within the intelligence community. Providing content and context to the issues of requirements, collection, exploitation, analysis, and consumer use, the book provides an excellent foundation for understanding the challenges inherent in each part of the intelligence cycle. It is ideal for its intended use as a textbook for future analysts and policy makers, and is equally suited for anyone interested in how the intelligence community and its components operate. (Naval War College Review)
