Hybel, Alex Roberto. The Logic of Surprise in International Conflict. Lexington, MA: Lexington Books, 1986.

Cubbage, I&NS 3.1, questions the author's scholarship, pointing to "the absence [from the book's bibliography] of a number of important reference works" with bearing on the study and the "total reliance on secondary sources." In his presentation of his four case studies -- Pearl Harbor, Barbarossa, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and Yom Kippur -- Hybel "adds nothing of substance" to the existing histories of these events.


Hyde, Earl M., Jr. "Bernard Schuster and Joseph Katz: KGB Master Spies in United States." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 12, no. 1 (Spring 1999): 35-57.

Hyde uses the Venona materials "to show ... the extent and technique of KGB operations [in the United States], and the use of the Communist Party" of the USA (CPUSA). He focuses on "Joseph Katz, who served the KGB for more than ten years as a supurb multifunctional agent and who managed..., Bernard L. Schuster, the organizational secretary of the Communist Party in New York."


Hyde, Earl M., Jr. "Churchill's Personal Spies." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 18, no. 2 (Summer 2005): 305-319.

"[D]uring the 1930s while exiled from government office," Churchill "elicited secret information from ranking officers in the Foreign Office, the Air Ministry, and from a variety of other military sources." His relationships with Sir Robert Vansittart, RAF Squadron Leader Torr Anderson, Ralph Wigram of the Foreign Office, Senior Air Staff Officer Lachlan MacLean, and Sir Desmond Morton allowed Churchill "to have his own intelligence network within the British government."


Hyde, Earl M., Jr. "Still Perplexed about Krivitsky." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 16, no. 3 (Fall 2003): 428-441.

The author provides a readable (although somewhat speculative) review of Krivitsky's role and life between his defection and his death.

[pb] London: Constable, 1989.

Pforzheimer sees The Quiet Canadian/Room 3603 as an "anecdotal account (excellent, as far as it goes) of British secret intelligence operations in the United States and the Western Hemisphere conducted by British Security Coordination (BSC)." It "is still the best book on Intrepid and BSC." Constantinides notes that Hyde was on the BSC staff and had access to Sir William Stephenson and his files after the war. Thus, "he has "produced ... the best book so far on BSC and Stephenson." There is some feeling that more remains to be learned about BSC's activities, particularly regarding Stephenson's covert propaganda effort prior to U.S. entry into the war. For Petersen, the book is "an incomplete but valid account" of BSC in the United States.

To Stafford, I&NS 5.3, the author presents Stephenson as "running BSC as a virtually independent agency," but BSC was acting on behalf of SIS, PWE, MI5, and the Security Executive in London. The book also makes claims for its subject that are untrue. Charles, I&NS 15.2, calls the book "an early and uncritical exposition of wartime intelligence cooperation." Although Hyde "paints a rosy (and sometimes misleading) portrait of Stephenson and his activities, it nonetheless offers what is accepted as a largely accurate portrayal of BSC activity in the Western Hemisphere." Troy, IJI&C 20.4 (Winter 2007), believes that Hyde's book remains "readable, informative, and generally persuasive."
