Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very interesting look into India's human intelligence protocol and capabilities by the former Joint Director of Intelligence Bureau (IB), thier version of the CIA. It is amazing to read their perspective on the United States intelligence capabilities and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

This book predominantly focuses on rudimentary operational tradecraft with information on spotting and handling agents, communications methods and surveillance. The technical intelligence and signal intelligence portions of the book are very dated (to U.S. standards) and limited in depth and scope. A lot of the information discussed could be found on-line. One chapter that I found interesting was on the training of intelligence officers, it was an excellent chapter.

Overall it is a pretty good read for the intelligence professional, just for the fact that there are limited publications on the subject of human intelligence outside of the United States. And it provides some interesting tid-bits of information on intelligence operation by a non-western country.

Its nice to see how another country (India as opposed to Russia, China, Israel) views Intelligence and Intelligence training. If you are into the topic or an Intelligence professional, its a good read. Nothing startling but a good professional read.
