U.S. Intelligence: Evolution and Anatomy


No major twentieth-century power has so short a history of national intelligence agencies or activities as does the United States, and few have been as public or as tumultuous. A major debate has now opened over the future structure, size, and role of U.S. intelligence in the aftermath of the cold war. This unique and fully updated book is a history of the U.S. intelligence community--as well as a detailed description of the organization and function of the major components of the community as they existed at the beginning of 1992. "A welcome and timely update of one of the most concise and objective guides to the history and structure of U.S. intelligence." Representative Dave McCurdy, Chairman, Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, U.S. House of Representatives
