From abstract: "While cryptologic activities were reduced in the years after World War I, they were intensified again in the late 1930s. The USA had reached good results in the period immediately before Pearl Harbor.... Japan since the early 1930s was [also] able to read the military and diplomatic ciphers of the United States as well as of Great Britain, though to a lesser degree than their enemies, and exchanged cryptographic information with the Axis partners, including captured code books."

Jonkers, AIJ 17.1/2, notes that "[w]hen war broke out in 1941, no intelligence system existed to provide Army Air Forces with the information to conduct effective war in Europe and the Pacific. This is the story of how intelligence organizations were built to collect, process, produce and disseminate intelligence to air command decisionmakers and forces."
For Kruh, Cryptologia 21.2, this "is an outstanding volume, which is fully documented with extensive footnotes." Christensen, I&NS 11.4/763/fn. 8, refers to this work as "an excellent account of air intelligence's short comings." Mahncke, NWCR, Autumn 1998, finds the book's "extensive coverage of the North African, Chinese, and Pacific theater air campaigns ... especially valuable, for they are often overshadowed by the continental European campaign."

Krepon, Michael. "Spying from Space." Foreign Policy 75 (Summer 1989): 92-108.
The author sees a three-tiered system shaping up with regard to the use of space: The first tier (with manned space operations) is the United States and Russia; a second tier includes China, France, Great Britain, India, Israel, and Japan (with satellite launch capabilities); a third tier consists of those countries which will rely on other countries' space assets. A rising trend is the use of commercial satellite images for military applications.

Kreps, Sarah E. "Shifting Currents: Changes in National Intelligence Estimates on the Iran Nuclear Threat." Intelligence and National Security 23, no. 5 (Oct. 2008): 608-628.
The author finds a parallel between the debate about the NIEs on Iran and a series of NIEs on the ballistic missile threat in the 1990s. She concludes that policy makers who accept "an estimate as the last word on any given threat" ignore "the fact that NIEs are, at best, informed guesses based on incomplete information about future capabilities and intentions."

Cohen, FA 78.3 (May-Jun. 1999), sees this as a "scholarly and systematic account of the 1994 American-dominated intervention in Haiti that candidly explores the problems encountered there by the U.S. Army.... Despite some awkward passages, including a heavy-handed analysis of the operation couched in hoary and irrelevant terms..., this is a first-rate study."

"As an empirical matter, the criminal justice system has advanced three important national security goals: disrupting terrorist plots through detection and arrest, incapacitating terrorists through prosecution and incarceration, and gathering intelligence from and about terrorists through interrogation and recruitment of them as cooperating assets.... While our criminal justice system has limits, and is not always the right tool for the job, when it is the right tool it has an exceptional success rate."

Clark comment: Krivitsky was a Soviet GRU "illegal" (his cover was as an art dealer in The Hague) operating in Western Europe; he defected in 1937. Krivitsky was either killed or committed suicide in February 1941. UPA's 1985 edition has a Preface by William Hood, which places the work in historical perspective. For a new biography of Krivitsky, see Gary Kern, A Death in Washington: Walter G. Krivitsky and the Stalin Terror (2003).
Goulden, Washington Times, 10 Aug. 2003, reviewing Gary Kern's A Death in Washington (2003), notes that In Stalin's Secret Service was "written by Isaac Don Levine" and adds that the work "for the most part has proved credible." Earl M. Hyde, Jr., "Still Perplexed about Krivitsky," International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 16, no. 3 (Fall 2003): 428-441, offers a readable (although somewhat speculative) review of Krivitsky's role and life between his defection and his death.
Pforzheimer notes that this is considered an "important 'core' book in the intelligence literature written by Soviet defectors. However, it is of mixed quality and occasionally subject to challenge in the light of later factual data." Nevertheless, "there is excellent material in this book" and it is "an important work." According to Constantinides, "[r]esearchers should keep in mind that the main thrust of the book is correct even though details may not be."
With regard to the 1992 edition, Surveillant 3.1 says that Krivitsky's story is "not completely told here.... [He] wrote the book to get survival money soon after arrival in the U.S.... Before he could write another ... he was found dead in a Washington, D.C. hotel room.... [H]e was never debriefed by the FBI." Commenting on the 2000 edition, Unsinger, IJI&C 15.2, reminds us that the focus of Krivitsky's work was not his espionage activities but, rather, the effort of a true believer to understand what Stalin was doing to the cause for which Krivitsky had labored.

Macartney identifies the author as a Department of Defense analyst who wrote this monograph "as part of her thesis while earning a masters degree in Strategic Intelligence at the College in 1996." This is "an excellent primer on intelligence -- but don't expect to find secrets, derring-do or skullduggery. It's mostly theoretical and practical, about knowledge and analysis -- an epistemology of intelligence if you will."
