Warren, Surveillant 4.4/5, notes that this is a history rather than a biography, and adds that the latter "would have been a better approach." Nevertheless, it "is still a readable and interesting report" about the 17th century French diplomat who liked to dress as a woman and was a spy for Louis XV. Staum, I&NS 11.4, sees this as a "masterful tour de force," the main contribution of which "is to relate d'Eon's career in French secret diplomacy to his surprising gender change."

Mercado, AIJ 21/1&2, notes that Japan's "school to train men in intelligence gathering and covert action" operated from 1938 to 1945. The author, a product of the school, "traces the institution's prewar roots, recounts its wartime exploits, and highlights the postwar activities of several prominent graduates."

Constantinides suggests that this story of a Czech who served as an agent for French military intelligence against the Italians between 1938 and 1942 is of "little consequence."

Kauffman, Michael W. American Brutus: John Wilkes Booth and the Lincoln Conspirators. New York: Random House, 2005.
To Fox, Civil War Times (http://www.historynet.com/cwti/reviews/cwt0605-3/), this work "offers a new but reasonable interpretation of the events surrounding the incident at Fords Theatre.... Kauffman assesses his subject as a manipulator, not a stooge for others.... Novices to the assassination need not fear tediousness or overkill on technical details, however. American Brutus is an engrossing, minute-by-minute account of events surrounding" the assassination of President Lincoln.
Kaufman, Denis C. Medical Intelligence: A Theater Engagement Tool. Report no. A360983. Carlisle Barracks, PA: Army War College, 21 Feb. 2001.
Abstract: "Of all the intelligence challenges in the post-cold war world, medical issues are emerging as one of the most important. Increasingly our policymakers recognize that disease, environmental pollution, and health systems' failures threaten peace, stability, and economic progress throughout the developing world, shaping environments on terms other than ours and, at times, necessitating U.S. humanitarian and peacekeeping involvement. Medical intelligence is one tool that helps national policy makers, theater commanders and operational planners employ the medical instrument to best effect. To be properly employed, however, medical intelligence must be viewed as an intelligence function more than a medical function. Further, medical intelligence assets need to be distributed through the spectrum of intelligence support -- strategic, operational, and tactical."

Kaufman, Marc. "U.S. Reverses, Lets Hmong Exiles Resettle; 15,000 War Refugees Allowed To Apply to Leave Thai Camp." Washington Post, 22 Dec. 2003, A3. [http://www.washingtonpost.com]
"[T]he State Department has agreed to allow the last major group of Indochinese refugees from the Vietnam War era to apply for resettlement in the United States. The order is directed at about 15,000 Hmong refugees -- the remnants of the former CIA secret army of Laos -- who have been living with no legal status at a Buddhist temple north of Bangkok for more than a decade."

Expectations with regard to performance and accountability "should be based on a realistic appraisal of the challenges faced by counterterrorism analysts who on a daily basis deal with amorphous and fragmentary information."
Kauppi, Mark V. "Intelligence Assessments of Soviet Motives." Intelligence and National Security 9, no. 4 (Oct. 1994): 603-632.
The author concludes that JIS 80 (January 1946) "is quite sophisticated and nuanced in that it considered a wide range of possible motivating factors for Soviet foreign policy. By late 1946, however, analysis of motivations in US intelligence documents was replaced by mere assertion and a preoccupation with near-term Soviet intentions." Kauppi attributes this change to the impact of George Kennan's "Long Telegram" of February 1946 and the March 1946 follow-up cable, because "Kennan's analysis essentially foreclosed any perceived need for US intelligence organizations to further assess Soviet foreign policy motivations."

Pforzheimer notes that the author took asylum in the United States in 1959, and calls this book "a rare look into the operation of intelligence in a Soviet Embassy." For Constantinides, the book is "valuable" and "interesting" for its "first-hand account of Soviet disinformation and covert psychological warfare operations.... This book should be on any list of works on Soviet deception." Caslon, Studies 7.3 (Summer 1963), finds that this work "provides a fairly accurate and realistic assessment of the then current Soviet situation in Rangoon, by an unusually gifted observer." It is "a fascinating and informative report."

On 13 March 2009, the CIA's Center for the Study of Intelligence released "six volumes of previously classified books detailing various aspects of the CIA's operations in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos in the '60s and '70s.
