Reviews

"Intelligence--The Secret World of Spies takes a comprehensive view, with the readings pegged to the major components of U.S. intelligence. I cannot wait to use the reorganized and updated fourth edition. I do and will recommend this book to colleagues. I describe it as the best general reader on U.S. intelligence available out there. Johnson and Wirtz get it right, as usual."--Michael A. Turner, University of San Diego

"The chapters are all relevant and timely. This book is an important text for students who either want to go into intelligence as a career or seek a graduate degree in this field. I have already recommended this book to many colleagues teaching national security and statecraft. An excellent choice."--Kamal A. Beyoghlow, American University
