Carmel, Hesi, ed. Intelligence for Peace: The Role of Intelligence in Times of Peace. Portland, OR: Frank Cass, 1999.

Kruh, Cryptologia 24.2, calls this an "important collection of articles by distinguished experts in intelligence and security." It "provides insights to the role of intelligence in times of conciliation and political process and offers an insider's view of how intelligence and secret diplomacy serve in times of peace."


Carment, David, and Martin Rudner, eds. Peacekeeping Intelligence: New Players, Extended Boundaries. London: Routledge, 2006.

To Peake, Studies 51.1 (Mar. 2007), while they may define the problems well, none of the 14 contributions to this work offer practical solutions to solving the complex nature of the relationship between UN peacekeeping operations and their use of intelligence.


Carmichael, Scott W. True Believer: Inside the Investigation and Capture of Ana Montes, Cuba's Master Spy. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2007.

From publisher: The author "served as the lead case agent for the DIA on the Ana Montes espionage investigation." Montes is "the only member of the intelligence community ever convicted of espionage on behalf of the Cuban government."

Peake, Studies 51.2 (2007), comments that "many of the details one would like to know -- just when and how she was recruited, precisely what was it that made DIA security and the FBI think she was an agent -- have been omitted, probably for security reasons.... There is more to be said about the Montes case, but True Believer is a worthwhile start." For Gambone, I&NS 26.2&3 (Apr.-Jun. 2011), Carmichael offers "a fascinating story," but one handicapped by his inability "to present evidence in support of his many assertions."

To Chesser, American Spectator, 3 Jul. 2007, this work "shows that catching spies within our own intelligence structure is a painstaking process." The author, "as much as he is able..., walks readers through each step of evidence gathering and case development, while illustrating the challenges in convincing his higher-ups that Montes was a problem." Goldman, IJI&C 21.2 (Summer 2008), declares this to be "a bad book for many reasons." The author manages to tell us more about himself than he does about Montes, replacing the presentation of facts with "what if scenarios" for which "he provides no evidence or information."

Harter, Intelligencer 15.3 (Summer-Fall 2007), finds "three glaring deficiencies" in this work: "the author fails to fully portray the role of the FBI...; define the damage done by Montes' espionage; and provide a meaningful explanation of her recruitment" by the Cubans. Although the book "is a good overview," it "remains an incomplete treatment." For Prout, DIJ 16.2 (2007), "aside from a glimpse at the bureaucratic organization of DIA, this book provides very little 'inside information'" on the Montes case. The author's "commentary on the modus operandi of well trained professional espionage agents could have come from spy novels and Grade B movies."

Carney, Donald J., and Thomas C. Indelicarto. "Indications and Warning and the New World Environment: The Drug War Example." Defense Intelligence Journal 3, no. 1 (Spring 1994): 89-105.

Drug trafficking is not a traditional threat nor one that "fits into the traditional forms of warning -- strategic or tactical." The authors posit other such "ambiguous warning environments" in the future.


Carney, James. "If You Don't Have Time to Read It ...: The 9/11 Report Is a Riveting -- and Dispiriting -- Read." Time, 25 Jul. 2004. []

"The 9/11 Commission Report ... has produced one of the most riveting, disturbing and revealing accounts of crime, espionage and the inner workings of government ever written.... The narrative of what happened [on 11 September 2001] and in the months and years leading up to it will enthrall readers.... The chapters on how the government tracked and dealt with the threat from al-Qaeda before 9/11 fascinate and dispirit."


Carney, Jeffrey M. Against All Enemies: An American's Cold War Journey. CreateSpace Publishing, 2013.

Peake, Studies 58.1 (Mar. 2014), finds that in this self-published book, "Carney covers his unhappy home life, his decision to defect, his life with his partner in the GDR, his view of his illegal arrest, and his treatment in prison. He doesn't regret his decision to defect and still views the GDR as representing 'the collective hopes and dreams of millions of its citizens.'"

According to Kahn, I&NS 23.2 (Apr. 2008), "[t]his sumptuous book, with its numerous color plates, lays out the intelligence activities" of Philip II. The authors call the late 1500s "the golden age of espionage."
