Carlisle, Rodney. The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Spies and Espionage.  Indianapolis, IN:  Alpha Books, 2003. 

Peake, Studies 47.3, calls this book "an encyclopedia of errata.... While the identification of organizations and events is useful, the details are suspect."


Carlisle, Rodney, ed. The Encyclopedia of Intelligence and Counterintelligence. 2 vols.   Armonk, NY:  M.E. Sharpe, 2005. 

According to Tomchyshyn, Booklist (quoted at, this "encyclopedia presents more than 420 entries on people, places, and organizations" arranged alphabetically.... Articles are signed by their contributors and include see also references and a bibliography of resources." Also included are an alphabetical list of articles; a "Timeline of Intelligence" from 1294 B.C. to the present; a "Resource Guide" listing books, articles, and Internet sites; and an appendix with extracts from The 9/11 Commission Report.

Peake, Studies 49.3 (2005), finds that compared with the author's Complete Idiot’s Guide (2003), this "is a much improved, more scholarly effort, whose entries have greater scope and depth.... While the principal focus is on ... American intelligence, the encyclopedia covers other countries and their services as well." In terms of errors, there is an "unrivaled collection of misstatements in Carlisle’s entry for Cambridge spy Donald Maclean." This "is a good place to start when readers, students, or analysts look for historical background," but "check other sources where particular facts are important to the case at hand."

Carlson, Elliot. Joe Rochefort's War: The Odyssey of the Codebreaker Who Outwitted Yamamoto at Midway. Foreword, Donald "Mac" Showers [RADM/USN (Ret.)] Annapolis, MD: U.S. Naval Institute Press, 2011.

Russell, NIPQ 28.1 (Jan. 2012), finds that this book tells Rochefort's "story in superb fashion." It especially recounts the story of "Rochefort's success with regard to Midway ... to a degree and with details not previously seen." For Dooley, Cryptologia 36.2 (Apr. 2012), the author "does an excellent job not only of leading us through Joe Rochefort's life, but also giving us a feel for how the US Navy operated in the interwar period." The book "has a journalistic flavor," but is also "very well researched and comprehensive."

For Peake, Studies 56.3 (Sep. 2012) and Intelligencer 19.3 (Winter-Spring 2013), this "[w]ell told and well documented" book tells the "story of a talented, sometimes abrasive, but always effective, officer battling the bureaucracy and unjustified criticism in a tradition-bound Navy."

Carlson, Elliot. "Missing Clues and Cracking Codes in the Pacific War." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 137, no. 12 (Dec. 2011): 66-71.

The author suggests that Rochefort's 27 November 1941 briefing of Admiral Kimmel "might have unintentionally reinforced the Fleet commander's attachment to the conventional outlook at Pearl: Japan would strike -- on the other side of the Pacific."
