"Creating a new analytical culture will definitely take time, because during most of the post-Communist period, the main institutional focus has been directed toward intelligence results or 'Products' -- not to 'Processes,' and even less to 'People.'"

Salehyan, Perspectives on Politics 9.1 (Mar. 2011), finds that the chapters on solutions "do not necessarily offer a unified view of environmental management and human security, but do suggest several possibilities for future analysis."


Matthews, John P.C. "The West's Secret Marshall Plan for the Mind." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 16, no. 3 (Fall 2003): 409-427.

The author, a participant in the program, tells the story of the Free Europe Press (FEP) and its mailing program to East Europe and the Soviet Union, which lasted from 1956 to 1993. He concludes his article with the somewhat wistful thought of the importance of George Minden's extensive files sitting in Washington or a country warehouse somewhere.


Matthews, Peter. SIGINT: The Secret History of Signals Intelligence 1914-45. Charleston, SC: The History Press, 2013.

Peake, Studies 58.3 (Sep. 2014), finds that this book "tells some interesting stories about intercept units and operations, but it has two serious drawbacks. It is not documented"; and it "is poorly edited, and the narrative is often hard to follow." Nonetheless, it "offers an interesting account of German SIGINT operations not found elsewhere."

"The key mystery now surrounding the spying activities of Agent Hola [Melita Norwood] centres on precisely what type of atomic secrets she betrayed."

Surveillant 3.4/5 says that this is the "story of Japanese spy rings operating through Spanish embassies and consulates in the UK, U.S. and Australia during WWII. Matthews shows how Japan manipulated a neutral country's diplomatic missions abroad to wreck destruction on the Allies."


Matthias, Willard C. America’s Strategic Blunders: Intelligence Analysis and National Security Policy, 1936-1991. University Park, PA: Pennsylvania State University Press, 2001.

According to Peake, Studies 48.1, the author was a "charter member of the CIA's Office of National Estimates.... The bulk of the book concentrates on the Cold War.... Matthias faults the United States for the Cold War's unnecessary length and vitality.... The reader learns much about the behind-the-scenes exchanges within the Board of National Estimates, the use of their product by the government, and the relationship between CIA analysts and academic experts.... [T]he book gives a unique look at strategic analysis from the inside and is worth serious attention by today's analysts and policymakers alike."

Chinese national "interests will put pressure on the intelligence services to be more active abroad against a wide variety of targets, both official and not. How intelligence performs missions in support of [China's] goals will also serve as indicators of Chinese national policy."


Mattis, Peter. "Assessing the Foreign Policy Influence of the Ministry of State Security." China Brief 11, no. 1 (14 Jan. 2011). []

"Changes in both competency and necessity appear to favor rising MSS influence in foreign policymaking. When political power is absent..., influence usually relates to merit and necessity.... The second major change is the expansion of Chinese interests abroad, which would require better intelligence to monitor effectively."

"[T]he data clearly indicates that analysts should not be so quick to assume substantial Chinese-Western differences in operational methods or goals in intelligence collection."


Mattis, Peter. "China's Misunderstood Spies." The Diplomat, 31 Oct. 2011. []

Characterizations of Chinese intelligence as "a giant vacuum cleaner ... provide no insight into what Beijing demands of its intelligence services, and no guidance for counterintelligence officials working against the Chinese services or trying to counter economic espionage."


Mattox, Raymond M., and Peter S. Rodgers. "Counterinsurgency in the 21st Century: The Foundation and Implications of the New U.S. Doctrine." Strategic Insights 6, no. 6 (Dec. 2007). []

This student thesis from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School suggests that Field Manual (FM) 3-24 on counterinsurgency (COIN) operations "is a necessary step in developing an effective and coherent U.S. approach to COIN. However, it fails to incorporate some more contemporary social movement theory explanations into its strategies. For example, it fails to recognize the relative importance political inclusion in counterinsurgency strategies versus other variables, such as security, as a primary means of success in counterinsurgency campaigns."

"Whether there is a fourth mole [Howard, Ames, and Hanssen being "the three"] remains likely but uncertain. But the strong possibility of his/her existence merits further study and investigation."
