Designed for both the student and the general reader, "Silent Warfare" is an insider's guide to a shadowy, often misunderstood world. Abram Shulskey and Gary Schmitt explain such topics as the principles of collection, analysis, counter-intelligence and covert action, and their interrelationship with policy makers and democratic values. This new edition takes account of the expanding literature in the field of intelligence and deals with the consequences for intelligence of vast recent changes in telecommunication and computer technology - the "information age". It also reflects the world's strategic changes since the end of the Cold War. This book provides a framework for understanding today's headlines, as well as the many developments likely to come in the real world of the spy.
