Chambers says this is "more like a booklist." Rocca and Dziak note that the work contains 556 general intelligence selections, with brief annotations; it is "[u]sefully cross-indexed by subject." Constantinides comments that some of the author's recommendations indicate that his "knowledge is extensive rather than intensive."

"[T]he Dutch were almost completely absent" from the Congress for Cultural Freedom (CCF). "[T]he main explanation for the Dutch lack of interest in the CCF [is] to be found in Dutch society itself.... [P]ost-war Dutch writers and artists hardly had a deeply-rooted tradition of political engagement." At the same time, "Dutch political intellectuals lacked cultural interest."

AFIO WIN 01-04 (12 Jan. 2004) suggests that this is an "angry, burn-the-bridges, insider look at [Dew's] experiences as female and agent in the pre-1990 Bureau.... She suggests the Bureau is a dysfunctional family which fosters the environment where someone like Robert Hanssen can work and thrive."

According to Peake, Studies 49.1 (2005), this book "describes several constants" in the author's "relatively brief but promising career. The positive ones include rapid promotion, awards, and commendations. The major negative aspect ... was the pervasive and persistent sexual harassment.... In part two of the book, Dew ... reviews the Hoover legacy with its emphasis on law enforcement." She "examines the effect of the Bureau's reluctance to cooperate with other intelligence agencies, the impact of several discomforting recent espionage and terrorist cases ... and the failures associated with 9/11. Since she was not involved, she merely gives views based on her experience." Dew also "makes a series of specific recommendations aimed at long-range FBI improvement."

Clark comment: Using the nom de guerre of Passy, Dewavrin managed Charles de Gaulle's Free French intelligence services and organized the Resistance in France.

Kahn, I&NS 23.2 (Apr. 2008), calls this a "dazzling study.... [T]here is no book like it in all of intelligence literature." Dewerpe's work "is encyclopedic but not exhaustive. It lacks a good knowledge of the secondary English-language literature."

After noting that the author is the Director of Studies of the French École des hautes études en sciences sociales, Brückner, JIH 7.2 (Winter 2007-2008), comments that a "reader expecting a traditional historical anthropology will be disappointed. It is a structuralist ... presentation of the public image of secret intelligence. It should be required reading for the public relations officers of intelligence services because it demonstrates what they are up against."

Jack Weeks died in 1968 when his A-12 apparently exploded on a test flight. "A couple of weeks before his death, he became the pilot who located the USS Pueblo,... after it was captured by North Korean patrol boats.... Battleship Park, home of the USS Alabama, will commemorate the 40th anniversary of his death on June 4 with a ceremony that will include an Alabama Air National Guard fly-over."

De Witte, Ludo. Trs., Ann Wright and Renée Fenby. The Assassination of Lumumba. New York: Verso, 2001.

Lippman, Washington Post, 26 Aug. 2001, finds this to be a "brief [224 pages] but well-documented" work. The author's argument is that "the Belgian government and major Belgian corporations -- with the support of the Central Intelligence Agency and the United Nations -- conspired with corrupt Congolese to get rid of Lumumba because he threatened their capitalist order." Along the way De Witte engages in some "over-the-top Marxist rhetoric." Nonetheless, "he has assembled a staggering amount of detail to support his allegations of direct [Belgian] government participation in Lumumba's murder."

Dhar, Maloy. Fulcrum of Evil: The ISI-CIA-Al Qaeda Nexus. New Delhi: Manas, 2006.

Peake, Studies 50.3 (Sep. 2006), says that the author's "somewhat warped analysis [concerning the CIA] suggests care should be taken in accepting his statements about other players. But the book has real value, despite its lack of documentation.... As a view from inside India and Islam, this is ... important if not easy reading."

Dhar, Maloy Krishna. Intelligence Tradecraft: Secrets of Spy Warfare. New Delhi: Manas, 2011.

Peake, Studies 57.2 (Jun 2013), notes that the author "has included some historical background and candid comments on what he perceives are the strengths and weaknesses of the Indian intelligence services. But in the main, Intelligence Tradecraft sticks to tradecraft and is thus one of the few books to treat it in such depth. It is interesting and informative, well worth attention."

Dhar, Maloy Krishna. Open Secrets: India's Intelligence Unveiled. New Delhi: Manas, 2005.

Peake, Studies 50.2 (2006), comments that whether the author "has got it exactly right is difficult to say since he provides no documentation." What he offers "is a professional intelligence officer's view of India's intelligence organizations based on his observations during a 29-year career. The central theme of the book is that legislative oversight of the organizations, which are subordinate only to the executive branch, has long been needed.... Dhar retired in 1995 after being passed over ... for the top position in the [Intelligence Bureau], and he is critical of the man who got the job -- D.C. Pathak.... But this doesn't distract from the unique look Open Secrets provides into India's intelligence services."
