Goldberg, Alfred. The Pentagon: The First Fifty Years. Washington, DC: Historical Office, Office of the Secretary of Defense, 1992. UV26V8G65

"This book addresses the building itself -- its origins and its construction, and how it has changed during the first half century of its existence. It may also dispel some of the myths and misinformation about the Pentagon that have been common for many years. Finally, it may inspire greater appreciation of the remarkable feat of conception, design, and construction achieved by the planners, architects, engineers, builders, and workmen who created the building."

Goldberg, Peter A. "The Politics of the Allende Overthrow in Chile." Political Science Quarterly 90, no. 1 (Spring 1975): 93-116.

Allende "failed precisely because he had succeeded in changing the conditions on which the stability of Chile's institutionalized system rested.... The conflict between the government and the opposition ... was between alternative ways of defining the dominant stake of Chilean politics.... Competing with the claims and actions of the opposition, the government was at a disadvantage because of the conservative, consumptionist, and status-conscious predispositions of many middle-class Chileans."


Goldberg, Robert Alan. "'Who Profited from the Crime?' Intelligence Failure, Conspiracy Theories and the Case of September 11." Intelligence and National Security 19, no. 2 (Summer 2004): 249-261.

The author argues that there is a "symbiotic relationship between intelligence failure and conspiracy thinking." He "outlines the conspiracy theories of left and right" raised in the wake of the intelligence failure of September 11, 2001. U.S. "government authorities validated their opponents' plot-making by defending themselves with their own cries of conspiracy."

According to Schecter, I&NS 17.2, the author "portrays a massive conspiracy against Pollard.... [His] charges of American government complicity remain unproven conjecture designed to portray Pollard as a victim of state persecution and anti-Semitism."

Peake, Studies 51.4 (2007), comments that "[p]ublication of a book by two participants in the [Litvinenko] case gave hope of learning new details -- it didn’t happen.... [U]nburdened by answers," this book "broods on coincidence and implies the return of the KGB when what is needed is a rigorous scholarly treatment of this unusual case." [Italics in original]
