"[C]ounterterrorism intelligence collection and exploitation efforts should focus on all jihadist extremist tactics," not just on the tactic of terrorism. The Intelligence Community "should not ignore rhetoic simply because it lacks the physical manifestation of violence."

"While the support that CI provides to RTP [Research and Technology Protection] programs is substantial, issues that hinder a collective ability to thwart the loss of research and technolgies remain.... [E]ach agency and department (especially within DoD) implements and executes RTP activities in an independent manner."

Avery, Donald H. The Science of War: Canadian Scientists and Allied Military Technology during the Second World War. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 1998.

From card catalog description: "This book explains how and why Canada was able to play in the big leagues of military technology, particularly in the development of radar, RDX explosives, proximity fuses, chemical and biological warfare, and the atomic bomb. It also investigates the evolution of the Canadian national security state, which attempted to protect defence secrets both from the Axis powers and from Canada's wartime ally, the Soviet Union."

Avis, Peter [CAPT(N)/Canada]. "Surveillance and Canadian Domestic Maritime Security." Canadian Military Journal 4, no. 1 (Spring 2003): 9-14.

"Both Canada and the US are taking maritime domestic security very seriously. It has become apparent ... that the vulnerable North American ports and seaways could be prime targets for a future terrorist attack.... By pooling our resources in maritime surveillance, and sorting out lines of command, we should be able to work together to set a reasonable maritime security system in place against the terrorist threat."


Avni, Zeev. False Flag: The Inside Story of the Spy Who Worked for Moscow and the Israelis. London: St. Ermin's, 1999.

According to Campbell, IJI&C 14.3, this is the story of how a Soviet spy penetrated the Mossad for the GRU. Bath, NIPQ 17.2, notes that this work "has the potential for being a great intelligence story but, unfortunately, fails to deliver."


Axelrod, Alan. The War Between the Spies: A History of Espionage during the American Civil War. New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, 1992.

Surveillant 2.5 describes this work as a "summary and general review of the existing literature on espionage in the Civil War." The AIJ 14.1 reviewer is enthusiastic, calling it a "fascinating book for Civil War buffs interested in intelligence.... Interesting and recommended." Not so Tidwell, FILS 11.5, who comments that "no serious student of the war or the craft of intelligence should clutter his mind or his library with it." A reviewer for MI 19.3 opines that the author's "stories become repetitive" and he "does not fully explore any one person's exploits.... While he has a large bibliography, there are no footnotes to reference specific information to."

Knott, I&NS 9.2, says that Axelrod "seems to have relied considerably on [inflated] memoirs." The lack of footnotes is troubling, and the book is an "awkward read" with an "occasional tidbit of information that piques the reader's interest." Nevertheless, the author's "study of the importance of intelligence..., while not original, is accurate and well presented." This book "would be best for the young reader who might be attracted to its light-hearted accounts of espionage. It is not for the serious student of intelligence history or of the American Civil War."

Rochefort maintains that "up to and including 7 December [1941], we were not reading the Japanese system."
