Drawing on over two decades as an intelligence officer and historian of the field, Lowenthal (Columbia U. and George Washington U.) argues that intelligence must be understood within the context of the larger policy process that it serves. In a text for a graduate or undergraduate introductory course, he discusses the process by which intelligence is created and used, including such topics as covert action, counter intelligence, oversight, and challenges and issues of the post-Cold-War era.
