User Review  - mdubois - LibraryThing

A good historical overview of the CIA. Could be used as a good primer for intelligence gathering with specific descriptions and examples of various types of intel gathering - espionage, surveillance, etc. Not as updated for the 2000's though as expected. Relies heavily on Soviet-era examples. Read full review
