Lexow, Wilton E., and Julian Hopyman. "The Enigma of Soviet BW." Studies in Intelligence 9, no. 2 (Spring 1965): 15-20.

"A dearth of information continues to keep open the Soviet germ warfare intelligence gap."


Lexow, Wilton. "The Science Attaché Program." Studies in Intelligence 10, no. 2 (Spring 1966): 21-27.

Beginning in 1951, the State Department began placing science attachés in a number of embassies, only to cut back on the program two years later. By 1956, "there were no longer any science attachés at all." (footnote omitted) The launch of Sputnik in October 1957 revived the program, and in 1965 "there were 23 attachés in 17 embassies." Problems remain, however, from misgivings about the program within the Department to difficulties in recruiting. Nor has the program been extended to the Communist countries.

1Conquest in Cyberspace: National Security and Information Warfare. New York: Cambridge University Press, 2007.

Arquilla, Perspectives in Politics 6.4 (Dec. 2008), finds that the author excels "at organizing a complex subject clearly and analyzing it insightfully." Although the work "crisply exposits its subject matter and lays out its argument logically, Libicki does not give disconfirming evidence its due." Nonetheless, Conquest in Cyberspace remains "a thoughtful, well-organized, and lively account of the modes of conflict that might emerge in the virtual domain."

Rocca and Dziak call this a "comprehensive, annotated survey of Soviet books, magazines, and press articles on Soviet intelligence, security and related matters." Constantinides adds that the volumes contain about 3,500 items, listed alphabetically. "There is a descriptive synopsis of each but except for an occasional adjective, there is no evaluation of individual pieces." See also U.S. Congress, below.

According to Auer and Halloran, Parameters (Spring 1996), the authors are quite "vituperative ... in condemning Mr. Truman and his associates." To them "Hiroshima is the 'mother of all cover-ups, creating tonalities, distortions, manipulative procedures, and patterns of concealment that have been applied to all of American life that followed' in Vietnam, Watergate, and Iran-Contra. They assert the decision to bomb Hiroshima ultimately caused the genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda. There is more, but you get the drift."


Lijek, Mark. The Houseguests: A Memoir of Canadian Courage and CIA Sorcery. CreateSpace Independent Publishing Plaform, 20 Nov. 2012..

According to Peake, Studies 57.3 (Sep 2013), and Intelligencer 20.2 (Fall-Winter 2013), the author was one of the six Americans who avoided capture when the U.S. Embassy in Tehran was overrun in 1979 and who were sheltered at the home of Canadian diplomat John Sheardown until rescued in a CIA covert operation. Lijek provides "details from a first hand point of view," and "makes it clear he was upset that the film [Argo] did not give appropriate recognition to the Canadian efforts.... Houseguests is exciting reading and fills an important gap in a history-making story."
