Mark M. Lowenthal’s trusted guide is the go-to resource for understanding how the intelligence community’s history, structure, procedures, and functions affect policy decisions. In this Sixth Edition of Intelligence: From Secrets to Policy, the author highlights new challenges facing the intelligence community, examining NSA programs, UAVs, the impact of social media, and the effects of the Snowden leaks on collection and Congressional oversight. An expanded chapter on oversight scrutinizes the role of the FISA court, OMB, and GAO.

Review:

"Intelligence is an excellent introduction into the realm of intelligence, both from the standpoint of the analyst and the policymaker. It is well written, clear and concise with well organized chapters. There is no text out there that covers the realm of intelligence in all of its phases as elegantly and precisely as this one does." Author: Alan Clyde More

"Lowenthal’s book remains the most cogent and comprehensive treatment of US intelligence and the intelligence processes.  Others treat various topics, principally analysis, in greater detail, but lack the scope of Lowenthal, which is what makes it valuable.  With each edition, Lowenthal ensures that the text is relatively up-to-date with recent events and trends.  His sense of humor is a great addition to what otherwise could be rather wonk-ish and dry text." Author: Peter Oleson
