Ali, S. Mahmud. Cold War in the High Himalayas: The USA, China and South Asia in the 1950s. New York: Palgrave, 1999.

From publisher: "The book examines elite-insecurity perceptions in India, Pakistan and the USA in the 1950s, the consequent linkages in alliance-building efforts, and subsequent triangular covert collaboration against Communist China."


Alin, Erika. The United States and the 1958 Lebanon Crisis. Lanham, MD: University Press of America, 1994.

Lucas, I&NS 12.3, calls this a "closely argued and well-documented study." The author avoids "the trap of arguing that the US unconditionally opposed Arab nationalism." The reviewer also notes that Alin is evaluating U.S. diplomatic and conventional military responses to events in the Lebanon and throughout the Middle East," rather than focusing on intelligence and covert action issues.

Aline [Griffiths], Countess of Romanones

Aline [Griffiths], Countess of Romanones, has published a series of spy fact/fiction books, perhaps partially and loosely based (particularly for those where the action occurs in the wartime and earlier post-war years) on personal exploits. The author's links with OSS during World War II seem to be widely accepted as fact. These books are not listed elsewhere in this bibliography, because this compiler/editor finds it impossible to place them among the nonfiction works (as bizarre as some of those may be) otherwise presented. The books are listed below in order of publication.

"While its effects are often overstated, an unprecedented amount of information flows from Washington to European headquarters and intermediate staging bases.... But elaborate information flows between higher command levels do not always translate into better support for the warfighter. In fact, life in Bosnia has not changed very much for the American soldier, because the information revolution largely stops at Division level."

Cohen, FA 75.4 (Jul.-Aug. 1995), says that this work "is a distillation of the military's official lessons and hence falls back on true but trite observations: an effective public information program is critical to the success of any operation, mission execution is more difficult without trained and well-organized staffs, and the like."
