Jenks, John. British Propaganda and News Media in the Cold War. Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2006.

According to O'Malley, H-Albion, H-Net Reviews, Jan. 2008 [], this "detailed, convincing, and scholarly work" deals with the "British government's handling of domestic and international propaganda in the late 1940s and the 1950s." The author provides "a detailed analysis of the nature, purpose, and range of activities of the Foreign Office's (FO) Information Research Department (IRD).... This book makes a valuable, empirically rich contribution to studies of the media and the state in the United Kingdom."

Note from Royal Historical Society Database: "The diplomatic mission of American Colonel Bonner Fellers to Cairo in 1942 and the security breach that occurred."


Jensen, Carl J. "The Intelligence Officer Training Corps: An ROTC-Style Program for the IC." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 24, no. 4 (Winter 2011-2012): 733-746.

The focus here "is limited to establishing a professional analytical entry-level cadre; this is not to imply that a broader approach, encompassing the entire intelligence function, should not be considered." (p. 746/fn. 16)


Jensen, Carl J., III, David H. McElreath; and Melissa Graves. Introduction to Intelligence Studies. Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press, 2012

After pointing out a few flaws, including the absence of source notes, Peake, Studies 57.2 (Jun. 2013), and Intelligencer 20.1 (Spring/Summer 2013), concludes that this text book is overall "a very good primer."


Jensen, Joan M. Army Surveillance in America, 1775-1980. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1991.

Dorwart, I&NS 8.2, comments that Jensen "places army spying within a broader context of national security policy and as part of an evolving American internal security program.... The growth of military surveillance of civilians during the war [WWI] accompanied the expansion of executive authority and federal bureaucracies." According to Surveillant 2.1, the author "sees a growing invisible intelligence empire within the U.S. government." Choice, Mar. 1992, sees this as a "clearly written history.... But there are a number of flaws." The book "wanders from its title statement ... [and] policy methodologies and conceptualizations are notably absent."

Jensen, Kurt F. "Canada's Foreign Intelligence Interview Program, 1953-90." Intelligence and National Security 19, no. 1 (Spring 2004): 95-104.

Since 1968 "located in the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, the Interview Program was for many years housed with the Defence Research Board at the Department of National Defence."


Jensen, Kurt F. Cautious Beginnings: Canadian Foreign Intelligence 1939-1951. Vancouver and Toronto: UBC Press, 2008.

Henderson, IJI&C 24.2 (Summer 2011), sees this as a "well-researched" and "detailed study" in which the author "has made excellent use of government archival materials in Ottawa, Washington, and London." The reviewer does note that Jensen "makes no mention of Canada's role in the North Atlantic Treaty signed in 1949 and the formation" of NATO. For Sayle, I&NS 25.6 (Dec. 2010), the author "provides a short summary of the administration, operations, and sometimes colourful figures involved in the formative era of Canada's intelligence structures." Yet the book "is largely a missed opportunity to establish a historical record of how and why Canadian foreign intelligence structures developed as they did."


Jensen, Mark A. "Intelligence Failures: What Are They Really and What Do We Do About Them?" Intelligence and National Security 27, no. 2 (Apr. 2012): 261-282.

The author discusses "three major components of failure: accuracy, surprise, and IC interaction with decision-makers."


Jensen, Richard. "Web Sources for Military History."

Cohen, FA 80.6 (Nov.-Dec. 2001), calls this site "a handy directory ... that offers remarkably complete coverage."

Jensen-Stevenson, Monika. Spite House: The Last Secret of the War in Vietnam. New York: Norton, 1997.

Jensen-Stevenson, Monika, and William H. Stevenson. Kiss the Boys Goodbye: How the United States Betrayed Its Own POWs in Vietnam. NewYork: Penguin, 1990.

This book is conspiracy theory writ large. It includes allegations (no better supported than the allegations of "deserting" of the POWs) of CIA drug dealing and accompanying coverup.

Jeremiah Panel. "Defining the Future of the NRO for the 21st Century: Report to the Director, National Reconnaissance Office. Final Report: Executive Summary, 26 August 1996." []

This is text of the Executive Summary of the report prepared by the panel chaired by David E. Jeremiah [ADM/USN (Ret.)]. The panel was appointed following the difficulties encountered by the NRO in 1994 (building flap) and 1995 (unspent funds), which had led to dismissal of the organization's director and deputy director in February 1996. The Panel concluded that "the NRO continues to be the right organizational answer to the nation's space reconnaissance needs in the future because it serves the national and military equities represented by the SECDEF and DCI." In addition, the Executive Summary presents 12 issues and makes recommendations on each.

On 5 July 2000, the Prime Minister's Office "said it gave 'full support' to the Mossad and its director, rejecting criticism by Mossad agents that the government had turned its back on the service by sending an agent to stand trial in Switzerland for a bungled wire-tap attempt on a Hizbullah member."
