Ernst, Maurice C. "Economic Intelligence in CIA." Studies in Intelligence 28, no. 4 (Winter 1984): 1-22. In Inside CIA's Private World: Declassified Articles from the Agency's Internal Journal, 1955-1992, ed. H. Bradford Westerfield, 305-329. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1995.

This is an excellent -- it is tempting to say "classic" -- brief history of the development of economic intelligence in the CIA. It is interesting, although a minor part of the article, that writing in 1984 Ernst says the question of whether the CIA should provide assistance to private U.S. firms "has been a hot issue for more than a decade."

Erskine, Toni. "'As Rays of Light to the Human Soul?' Moral Agents and Intelligence Gathering." Intelligence and National Security 19, no. 2 (Summer 2004): 359-381.

The author "sets out a simple typology of 'realist,' 'consequentialist' and 'deontological' ethical approaches to intelligence collection and explores how different practices might be variously evaluated from each."


Ervin, Clark Kent. Open Target: Where America is Vulnerable to Attack. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2006.

Peake, Studies 50.4 (2006) and Intelligencer 15.2 (Fall-Winter 2006-2007), finds that the author, a former DHS inspector general, has produced a "frustrating, even frightening, but important book." Ervin surveys "every facet of homeland security" and concludes that "[w]hile some progress has been made, albeit wastefully, and it is harder for terrorists to attack now than it was five years ago,... it is still much easier than it should be."

1. Heroines of the SOE F Section: Britain's Secret Women in France. Stroud : History Press, 2010.

From publisher: "Beryl Escott tells the true story of the incredible 40 women who worked" for SOE during World War II. "These women came from a variety of backgrounds.... She explores what made them risk their lives.... She takes us on a journey through their recruitment and training into their undercover operations,...and details their often tragic demise from death by injection to being shot in a prisoner of war camp[]."

2. Mission Improbable: A Salute to the RAF Women of SOE in Wartime France. Cambridge: Stephens, 1991.

Tells the stories of 15 women from the WAAF who served with SOE in France during WWII. The author "examines the role played" in the SOE by women of the Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). "Their mission was indeed improbable and hazardous.... In view of the dangers and horrific ordeals undergone by these young women, it is miraculous that some of the missions were successful, but the cost in lives was high. Beryl Escott uses her knowledge and experience of the Women's Royal Air Force to piece together the stories of 15 women of the SOE."

"[W]e should carefully deliberate before we join or initiate any new armed fights, but draw on drones extensively, if fight we must. They are more easily scrutinized and reviewed, and are more morally justified, than any other means of warfare available."

"COIN is a complicated vessel that must be carefully guided through challenging terrain. It is often burdened by adding missions to its core task to end the insurgency and leave behind a legitimate and effective government. Some of these missions may be fully justified; however, those who pile them on should realize that they further burden COIN, and that it might be overloaded to a breaking point. They had best restrain their ambition as much as possible, which is the subtext of this whole article."
