I rather like this book, and believe it continues to have value as a primer on intelligence for both students and entry-level employees. Most interesting is the distinction that Shulsky, himself a former defense analyst, professional staffer on the Hill, and sometime Pentagon policy wonk, makes between the “Traditional” view of intelligence as “silent warfare”, and the “American” view of intelligence as “strategic analysis.”
