Husain, Aiyaz. "Covert Action and US Cold War Strategy in Cuba, 1961-62." Cold War History 5, no. 1 (Feb. 2005): 23-53.

From abstract: "An examination of the administration's covert actions in Cuba, both prior to and during Operation Mongoose, reveal clear bounds within which President Kennedy sought to circumscribe those actions. And the policy he adopted, a preponderant body of evidence shows, stopped well short of overt military intervention."


Hussain, Imtiaz. "A Mexico-U.S. Security Community? Intelligence Without Policy, Policy Without Intelligence." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 22, no. 1 (Spring 2009): 31-49.

The post-9/11 "Mexico-U.S. security incompatibility stems from both design and default.... [W]ith Mexico's heart, mind, and soul refusing to join the war against terrorism without first settling emigration and economic integration issues, this relatively minor country and lesser antiterror player ultimately holds the northern superpower's security needs hostage to its non-security imperatives."

Dick was Captain of the Sea King that carried the Special Forces team into Argentina. The operation is described in detail including events in the air and on the ground in Argentina and Chile."

Hutchinson, Harold R. "Intelligence: Escape from Prisoner's Dilemma." Intelligence and National Security 7, no. 3 (Jul. 1992): 327-334.

The "prisoner's dilemma" game theory model is a static, one-time situation. Many situations between nations might be seen more as a motion picture, rather than as a snapshot (my analogy, not the author's). When played as an iterative game, it is possible for a progressive stability of cooperation to emerge. Under such conditions, "intelligence is a means by which the players can establish and sustain a cooperative relationship.... Without intelligence, the optimal strategy choice of conditional cooperation is not possible."

Hutchinson, Robert. Elizabeth's Spy Master: Francis Walsingham and the Secret War that Saved England. London: Phoenix, 2006.

Dafforne, I&NS 22.6 (Dec. 2007), uses such terms as "lucid account" and "fine narrative" to describe this work. However, the reviewer would have preferred that the author have paid more attention "to major historical events." In addition, "Hutchinson tends to draw comparisons with the twenty-first century too readily and too frequently." However, these are "minor faults in an otherwise excellent book."

Constantinides: The author was in charge of the production of escape aids for the British escape and evasion organization, MI9, during World War II. Official Secret "should be basic reading in escape and evasion training."

A reviewer for Studies 5.3 (Summer 1961) suggests that this work "may be merely a pecuniary speculation by an exile fabrication mill, or [it] may be something more sophisticated, a product of Moscow's cold warriors; a case can be made for either view."

Huyser, Robert E. [Gen/USAF (Ret.)] Mission to Tehran. New York: Harper & Row, 1986.

The author was EUCOM deputy when President Carter sent him on a special mission to Iran in January 1979. Campbell, FA 66 (Spring 1987), say that the author's "primary purpose is to show how he carried out his not-very-clear instructions, and this he does in a factual description of his daily activities, taken up largely in contacts, conversations and exhortations with the chiefs of the Iranian armed forces and in telephoned reports to the secretary of defense in Washington."
