Grier, Peter. “Ex-Wife’s View of Life with an Accused CIA Spy.” Christian Science Monitor, 27 Jan. 1997.

The Nicholson case "is one of the strangest and most troubling incidents of alleged espionage that US intelligence has faced since the end of the cold war. The reason: Nicholson was a hard-working man on the rise.... A look at Nicholson's life -- including a lengthy, exclusive interview with his longtime spouse -- reveals a man that some might judge tightly wrapped. He pursued work instead of vacations, advancement instead of family relations, and after his divorce struggled with the demands of being an expatriate single father."

Griffin, Jim [LTCDR/USN]. "Naval Intelligence Needs a High-Low Mix." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 132, no. 1 (Jan. 2006): 66-70.

This article was the 2005 Naval Intelligence Essay Contest 1st Prize winner. The author argues that "[t]he first priority of Naval Intelligence must be the ability to answer any question a commander may ask about a potential adversary. To successfully do that, the community must organize and evaluate itself based on its knowledge of the threat.... A mix of intelligence capabilities to meet the diverging threats of the post-9/11 world is needed." This mix would include both conventional (high-end) capabilities and unconventional (low-end) capabilities.

Grimmer, Reinhard, Werner Irmler, Willi Opitz, and Wolfgang Schwanitz, eds. Die Sicherheit. Zur Abwehrarbeit des MfS. Berlin: Edition Ost im Verlag Neues Berlin, 2002.

According to Wegmann, JIH 2.2, this work is the product of a group of 20 officers who occupied high positions in East Germany's Ministry of State Security (MfS). It "concentrates on subjects of internal national security and intelligence." Die Sicherheit "deserves the unbiased attention of all who take a serious and unprejudiced interest in East Germany's system and ministry of state security and intelligence."


Grimmett, Richard F. Intelligence Authorization Legislation: Status and Challenges. Washington, DC: Congressional Research Service, Library of Congress, 21 May 2012. Available at:

From "Summary": After "President Bush signed the FY2005 Intelligence Authorization bill ... in December 2004, no subsequent intelligence authorization legislation was enacted until the FY2010 bill was signed by President Obama in October 2010." In June 2011, the President signed the Intelligence Authorization Act for FY2011. Then, in January 2012, the President signed into law the Intelligence Authorization for FY2012. "The passage of these ... bills appears to reflect a determination to underscore the continuing need for specific annual intelligence authorization legislation."

"Canberra's process of adjusting its intelligence to meet the challenges of global terrorism,... started more than two years before the September 11 attacks..., in preparation of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. After September 11, the Australian government further strengthened its intelligence capabilities through legislative and funding adjustments."

Gross, Chuck. Rattler One-Seven: A Vietnam Helicopter Pilot's War Story. Denton, TX: University of North Texas Press, 2006.

Guilmartin, Air & Space Power Journal 23.2 (Summer 2009), notes that this book is about the author's "one-year tour of duty as a ... UH-1 'Huey' pilot ... beginning 15 May 1970." His "style is spare and straightforward, and his account modest and direct, unsparing in his assessments of himself and others.... Gross flew a variety of missions," including "inserting special operations groups into Laos as well as extracting them. His account of a night extraction of a compromised patrol from a minuscule landing zone (LZ) in south Laos had the hair standing up on the back of my neck!"

According to Maddrell, I&NS 18.4, Großmann succeeded Markus Wolf as head of the East German foreign intelligence service (HVA) in 1986. He is "tight-lipped when discussing the HVA's spies and only discusses those whose espionage is already known." Nonetheless, the book "contains much of interest both for historians of intelligence and security and for historians of the DDR."
