The role of intelligence in US government operations has changed dramatically and is now more critical than ever to domestic security and foreign policy. This authoritative and highly researched book provides a detailed overview of America's vast intelligence empire—its organizations, its operations (from spies on the ground to satellites thousands of miles in space), and its management structure. Relying on a multitude of sources, including hundreds of official documents, author Jeffrey T. Richelson provides an up-to-date picture that will allow students to understand the full scope of the US intelligence community's organizations and activities and give valuable support to policymakers and military operations. Fully revised throughout, the sixth edition of this definitive text includes new material on intelligence organization, foreign and domestic intelligence collection and analysis, covert action, and cooperation with foreign intelligence services.

A senior fellow at the National Security Archive in Washington, DC, Richelson has authored numerous works on intelligence, including A Century of Spies, The Wizards of Langley, and Spying on the Bomb.
This work by Richelson should be viewed as the Rosetta Stone' for understanding the intelligence community Richelson's approach is genius, specific, and straight to the point. The US Intelligence Community will prove to be very valuable for people less informed about the intelligence community, as it will be to experts who are already familiar with previous editions.”
