“Best of the Best” from CIA Insider Think Pieces,
December 18, 2000
Professor H. Bradford Westerfield
Brad, a respected scholar in his own right, was given unique access to all past publications of the CIA’s internal journal, Studies in Intelligence, and has produced an absolutely lovely collection of the best thoughts inside CIA from 1955-1992, organized into sections for imagery intelligence collection, overt human intelligence collection, clandestine human intelligence collection, human intelligence and its consumers, the analysis function, analysis and its consumers, and counterespionage. I regard this book as an essential supplementary reading for teaching both students and practitioners.
