About this title


This text demonstrates intelligence intervention in politics in the modern democratic state. In theory, intelligence work should be objective, autonomous and free of political influence; at its best, it should be guided solely by the professional ethic of intelligence. In reality, however, unavoidable political pressures, as well as bureaucratic and personal interests, can and often do influence the conduct of intelligence work. In tracing and explaining the effects of these pressures and interests on the behaviour of intelligence organisations and individuals, Uri Bar-Joseph analyses four case studies of intelligence intervention in politics: the 1961 Bay of Pigs episode; the 1954 Israeli 'Unfortunate Business Affair'; and the 1920 'Henry Wilson Affair'; and 1924 'Zinoviev Letter Affair'; in Britain.
