Chan, Minnie. "Military Spy Chief Held in Graft Inquiry." South China Morning Post, 5 Mar. 2015. []

Maj. Gen. "Xing Yunming, the former liaison office head of the People's Liberation Army's General Political Department, was taken away by the army's anti-graft watchdog" on 17 February 2015. Xing "is under investigation for alleged corruption.... Xing's detention follows that of Ma Jian, former executive deputy minister of the ... Ministry of State Security. Ma is closely linked to Ling Jihua , who was detained last month on corruption charges and was an aide to former president Hu Jintao. Ma is the highest-ranking national security official to be investigated since the downfall of Zhou Yongkang, the former security tsar who was detained in July over alleged corruption."

Surveillant 3.6 calls this an "impressive military history work" the scope of which is mostly "far afield" from intelligence. However, Sexton notes that there are "informative entries discussing the importance of Signals Intelligence and ULTRA."

"More than a dozen insurgents ambushed and killed seven Spanish intelligence officers on [29 November 2003] on a highway near [Latifiya,] south of Baghdad....

Charney, David L.[M.D]. "True Psychology of the Insider Spy." Intelligencer 18, no. 1 (Fall-Winter 2010): 47-54.

The author, a clinical psychiatrist who has consulted within the Intelligence Community and who was part of the defense teams for Earl Pitts, Robert Hanseen, and Brian Regan, proposes that "[a] novel way to approach the problem of insider spying would be to build mechanisms that create safe exits for troubled insiders before they start to spy and safe exits for those already engaged in spying."


Chang, Jung. and Jon Halliday. Mao: The Unknown Story. London: Jonathan Cape, 2005.

Peake, Studies 50.2 (2006), finds that "the dominant theme" of this book is "Mao's self-centered lifelong pursuit of power, the steps he was willing to take to achieve and keep it, and his distaste for the peasant.... An essential element in both acquiring power and keeping it was a reliable security service. The authors blend Mao's actions toward this end throughout the book, and they describe his mercurial relationship with Kang Sheng."

Surveillant 3.1 identifies this as a "collection of formerly secret documents" that is "more document reproduction ... than text." According to FILS 11.6, there are some CIA documents here, but the "lion's share are of Department of State, White House, and Defense Department origin." See Chang, et. al., eds., The Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962: Guide and Index, 2 vols. (Alexandria, VA: Chadwyck- Healey, 1990). See also McAuliffe, ed., CIA Documents (1992).

"How should this new department be organized to utilize existing intelligence assets and to generate new sources and types of intelligence? The U.S. military's recent experience, especially in organizing for joint warfare, might be a place to turn for some lessons."

Orange, I&NS 9.3: Did a Wellington night-bomber squadron in Egypt in 1942 "need a comparatively elderly [32] schoolteacher, entirely ignorant of aviation, as an 'intelligence' expert?... The answer emerges ... in this absorbing book as Chappell progresses ... to ... respected authority." The book was "first published by William Kimber in 1980 and re-appears in a slightly corrected edition.... [The] tone throughout is sensible and sensitive."

Giangreco, NWCR, Spring 1998, calls this a "fine work" that "fleshes out our knowledge of the environment in which all life-and-death decisions had to be made in 1945."
