Intelligence; From Secrets to Policy 7th Edition 2nd Edition
"Intelligence: From Secrets to Policy remains the standard by which all other intelligence studies textbooks should be evaluated. Each chapter covers its topic clearly and concisely, conveying the information within with just the right amount of detail; the sidebar boxes offer excellent topics for classroom discussion. The book is comprehensive and covers topics that are themselves each book worthy." -- Greg Moore
"Lowenthal’s Intelligence: From Secrets to Policy is a comprehensive text which reflects current events and new developments in the field. It is able to introduce difficult to understand concepts in ways that students are readily able to comprehend." -- John Comiskey
"Intelligence: From Secrets to Policy is incredibly informative, timely, well-written, and easily accessible by students and professionals alike. Mark Lowenthal starts by providing a baseline for understanding the role that "intelligence" plays in the operation of a government and its interactions with other countries. He then provides historical context for the development of the U.S. intelligence community. From there, we get a deep look into the practice of intelligence and the broad spectrum of roles with the intelligence community, from protecting our secrets and obtaining the secrets of others. The use of intelligence in formulating policy is also an essential element discussed here and, in a "post-Snowden" era, Lowenthal′s discussions of accountability, ethics, and reform are very timely and insightful." -- Gary C. Kessler, Ph.D.

I rented this book for my class, but I thought that I bought it so I underlined the heck out of all the useful parts (almost the whole entire book) and wrote in it to remember. I felt so guilty and heartbroken when I had to send it back as a rental, but I would have had to pay another $80 to keep it.
