Editorial Reviews

Review

“Easy to read and understand.”—Library Journal
 
Library Journal

Silent Warfare is the ideal primer on intelligence. It offers not only a comprehensive introduction to the subject, but an analysis of intelligence that exposes the flaws in the conventional wisdom of the intelligence community. A superbly balanced work.”—Elliott A. Cohen, professor and director of strategic studies, School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University
 
-- Elliott A. Cohen

“Contains many insights. . . . Well worth reading.”—Ray S. Cline, former deputy director of the CIA
 
-- Ray S. Cline, former deputy director of the CIA

“The best place for the general reader to start learning about the real world of intelligence work.”—Robin W. Winks, author of Cloak and Gown: Scholars in the Secret War
 
-- Robin W. Winks, author of Cloak and Gown: Scholars in the Secret War

“A thoughtful, authoritative study of intelligence written clearly and insightfully.”—Ronald Kessler, author of The Spy in the Russian Club
 
-- Ronald Kessler
