Analyzing Intelligence

Analyzing Intelligence, now in a revised and extensively updated second edition, assesses the state of the profession of intelligence analysis from the practitioner's point of view. The contributors--most of whom have held senior positions in the US intelligence community--review the evolution of the field, the rise of new challenges, pitfalls in analysis, and the lessons from new training and techniques designed to deal with 21st century national security problems.

The Central Intelligence Agency : An Encyclopedia of Covert Ops, Intelligence Gathering, and Spies

Covers the history of the CIA from its days prior to World War II through 2015. Includes documents and intelligence reports formerly classified as top secret.

Handbook of Warning Intelligence

This new and final edition is a follow-up to the author's first book, Anticipating Surprise (University Press of America, 2002) and the Handbook of Warning Intelligence (Scarecrow Press, 2010). The Handbook of Warning Intelligence was written during the cold war and was classified for 40 years. Originally written as a manual for training intelligence analysts, it explains the fundamentals of intelligence analysis and forecasting, discusses military analysis, as well as the difficulties in understanding political, civil, and economic analysis and assessing what it means for analysts to have "warning judgment." In these last chapters, Grabo discusses scenarios where the United States will need to take action, especially describing Soviet indicators of such action. She also talks on how to influence policymakers to take, or not take, action based on intelligence.

Homeland Security Intelligence

Comprehensive treatment of intelligence-related topics for homeland security practitioners with a focus on counterterrorism and cyber-security.

Intelligence Analysis

This is the second edition of an earlier work that looks at current threats to the United States. The US under a new presidential administration is looking to depart from globalization, though there are still inextricable linkages among all countries in the world. This book provides an open source intelligence analysis of regions, countries and non-state actors from around the world that could have an impact on the United States. These areas and actors are dissected using predominately qualitative analysis techniques focusing on secondary data sources in order to provide an open source intelligence look at threats as seen by the United States using two models (the York Intelligence Red Team Model and the Federal Secondary Data Case Study Triangulation Model).

Terrorism : The Essential Reference Guide

Provides overview of how terrorism has changed over time and what new threats may be on the horizon. Analyzes counterterrorism policies and discusses terrorist groups; their tactics, techniques, and procedures; and their ideologies, motivations, and objectives.
