Knorr, Klaus, and Patrick Morgan, eds. Strategic Military Surprise: Incentives and Opportunities. New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Books, 1983, 1984.

According to Pforzheimer, this book covers strategic surprise from the Austro-Prussian war of 1866 to the Tet offensive in Vietnam. Lowenthal notes that the analytical framework for the cases "includes a discussion of the attacker's estimates as part of its decision process and of the attacked party's ability to discern the impending threat."

Sexton identifies the author as the head of the Atlantic Section, Combat Intelligence, of the 10th Fleet (the U.S. Navy's equivalent of the British Admiralty's Submarine Tracking Room). Knowles argues that integrated with HF/DF, Ultra provided the "'edge of victory at sea' in the Atlantic. Highly recommended."

Kober, Stanley. The CIA as Economic Spy: The Misuse of U.S. Intelligence after the Cold War. Policy Analysis No. 185. Washington, DC: Cato Institute, 1992.

The premise of those who see economic intelligence as a primary target for U.S. intelligence agencies "appears to be that international economic competition inherently poses a national security threat. Such an unwarranted assumption betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of economics and will distract U.S. intelligence agencies from their proper function: gathering information on genuine security threats. It could also lead to an unhealthy and potentially corrupt relationship between those agencies and American corporations. Finally, it has the potential to poison relations with other democratic capitalist countries."
