"Just as other traditional purveyors of information ... are belatedly discovering that one-time customers no longer find the type of information they convey or the forms in which they do so to be of value, so does the IC face the challenge of proving its continued worth to those whom it calls 'customers.'"

Peake, Studies 56.4 (Dec. 2012) and Intelligencer 19.3 (Winter-Spring 2013), notes that the author is an alum of FBIS and the Open Source Center. In this work, Olcott begins by reviewing the history of open-source intelligence in the U.S. government, "citing theoretical foundations, bureaucratic battles, and various commission reports." However, most of the book "addresses th[e] multifaceted problem" of the information explosion "and its implications." This "is a thoughtful, well-documented, if at times ponderous treatment of a very practical and important problem."

"The views of Kendall and Pettee found little traction in their day but now seem to have important lessons for how the intelligence profession might change if those of us who practice it wish to escape extinction."

"Communist intelligence services saw British universities as among their most fertile recruiting grounds.... A combination of idealism and intelligence made both students and academics obvious targets for spymasters. Opportunity was the crucial third ingredient, the international nature of higher education making it easy for contacts to be made and political allegiances to be established without arousing suspicion."

1. Capturing Jonathan Pollard: How One of the Most Notorious Spies in American History Was Brought to Justice. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2006.

Clark comment: The author is a retired special agent of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS).

Allen, Proceedings 132.12 (Dec. 2006), says that the author's "narrative often has the momentum of a spy thriller." Olive is convinced that Pollard showed that he was a security risk early in his career with the Naval Investigative Service (NIS -- now NCIS) and should have been let go years before he was caught as a spy.

For Brooks, NIPQ 23.1 (Jan. 2007), this "well-written, fast-paced story reads like a novel." The author "was intimately involved in the investigation and has seen much, if not all, of the classified information associated with the case." To Goulden, Intelligencer 15.2 (Fall-Winter 2006-2007) and Washington Times, 24 Dec. 2006, this book "towers over the pack" of the books on the Pollard case.

Peake, Studies 51.1 (Mar. 2007), finds Capturing Jonathan Pollard to be "a well-documented, first-hand account of a benchmark espionage case." The author "spends the bulk of the narrative on how Pollard came under suspicion and how he got caught."

2. "A Spy Left Out in the Cold." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 132, no. 11 (Nov. 2006): 62-63.

Here, Olive tells of Pollard's initial meeting with Israeli intelligence officer Aviem Sella, where a communications plan based on pay phones was worked out.


Oliver, David. Airborne Espionage: International Special Duties Operations in the World Wars. Gloucestershire, UK: Sutton Publishing, 2005.

Peake, Studies 49.3 (2005), finds that the author covers special-mission flying in World War I, between the wars, and in "the glory days of what the Allies called Special Duty (SD) Squadrons," World War II. In addition, Oliver "includes many of the Nazi and Japanese operations against the Allies and also describes their aircraft."
