Save to active project


I owe a debt of gratitude to many people for assisting me and encouraging me in the writing of this book. First, thanks to Heather Staines, Senior Editor at Greenwood Publishing Group, who not only asked me to write this book, but who was instrumental in bringing my first book to publication several years ago. The research and writing on this latest project led to the creation of a new course at Boston University on intelligence and homeland security, one of the first in the nation. I appreciate the encouragement of my Department Chairman Erik Goldstein, the willingness of Dean Jeffrey Henderson of BU's College of Arts and Sciences to approve something so new and untested, and the suppport of Associate Dean Susan Jackson in bringing the course into the curriculum. The results were all one might have hoped.

I was aided a great deal in the research for this book by a team of willing and eager graduate students, who quickly pitched in to dig up some of the more obscure data. I wish to thank Emily Thompson, Greg Joachim, Fadi Petro, Dave Diaz, Jim Enos, and Kara Bombach, all of whom gave willingly of their time.

I wish to thank Richard Valcourt, friend, colleague, and literary agent, who made sure that the proposal for the book was translated into an actual project. Richard's work as Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence has helped make the study of intelligence issues a reality at colleges and universities both here and abroad.
