Reich, Robert C. "Re-examining the Team A-Team B Exercise." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 3, no. 3 (Fall 1989): 387-403.
Reich finds that the exercise clearly had an important short-term effect: it changed the finished version of NIE 11-3/8. Its long-term impact reaches even beyond changes in CIA methodological practices and include a revamping of U.S. nuclear policy in the 1980s that encompassed many of Team B's conclusions about Soviet strategic objectives.

George, Journal of Conflict Studies 12.2 (Spring 1992), finds that the "central concern" of this book is "to analyze the mentality and/or beliefs of terrorists as sources of their behavior.... [D]espite a few blemishes and with only two exceptions, the Origins of Terrorism, as a collection of psychological and related studies of terrorist behavior, makes a major contribution to the ever-growing literature on terrorism."

Reid, T. R. "Britain Concedes In Virtual Battle: Internet List of Alleged Spies Multiplies." Washington Post, 15 May 1999, A17. [http://www.washingtonpost.com]
"After a futile three-day struggle in cyberspace, Britain's spy services essentially threw up their hands today and conceded that the Internet is so fast and so far-flung that no government can control the flow of information on the global network....
"Having surrendered on the information battleground, the government instead focused on protecting the people who were named as spies. To spread as much doubt as possible, Foreign Minister Robin Cook announced that the Internet is 'highly inaccurate.' Some of those named have no government connection, officials said. Others were said to be officers in the British foreign service, stationed around the world, but not involved in intelligence. Meanwhile, some of those named were placed under 24-hour guard. Others on the list, including staffers at British embassies in some countries, will be transferred to London."

On 8 June 2000, Brigadier Stephen Saunders, British defense attache in Greece, "was shot dead by two gunmen on motorcycles who fired into his car on a main Athens thoroughfare." Brian Murphy, "Terrorist Group Takes Blame for Greece Slaying," Associated Press, 9 Jun. 2000, reports that the Greek terrorist group, November 17, had claimed responsibility for killing Saunders. The claim came in "a 13-page declaration that appeared in the daily newspaper Eleftherotypia."

Constantinides notes that two thirds of the book is mainly concerned with Pepita Reilly's efforts to discover what had happened to her husband. The first third "is presented as Sidney's narrative of his role in the so-called Lockhart Conspiracy," the effort to overthrow the Bolsheviks soon after they took power.
Reisch, Alfred A. Hot Books in the Cold War: The CIA-Funded Secret Western Book Distribution Program Behind the Iron Curtain. Budapest and New York: Central European University Press, 2013.
For a perceptive overview of this still classified covert operation, see Benjamin B. Fischer's review article, "The Best Kept Secret: An Untold Story of a Cold War Operation," International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 27, no. 2 (Summer 2014): 397-427. As Fischer notes, Reisch was a participant in "the book program." He rightly "gives Poland a pride of place in his account," since Poland "is the best case for the argument that the book program, and covertly-funded publishing in general, made a major contribution to ending the Cold War."
Peake, Studies 58.4 (Dec. 2014), finds that even though the author "does not mention the Zhivago project," this "is a meticulously documented study of a successful CIA covert action program that has received little scholarly attention until now. A very valuable contribution to the intelligence literature."

Choice, Jul./Aug. 1992, says this is a "comprehensive and authoritative study of the international and domestic US legal aspects of covert operations.... [It is] thoroughly documented and well written." Peake, FILS 2.4, finds that the book suffers from "semantic and definitional confusion ... [but is] well-written [and] well-documented."
According to APSR 87.1, the book "focuses most of its attention ... on international law.... [The authors] find a international legal regime on intervention (particularly covert intervention) that is asymmetrically more permissive of U.S. action than most traditionalists could accept.... [This is a] tightly reasoned (though terse) book..., [with] copious endnotes, and annotated bibliography.... [I]mportant substantive matters have inevitably been skimmed, others omitted, while the treatment of the cases ... is brief in the extreme."
Turner, NSLR, May 1995, believes the book "provides an excellent overview of legal issues associated with the coercive use of military, economic, diplomatic, and ideological tools. It is particularly valuable in discussing the low-intensity use of military force.... The book also includes a discussion of a number of controversial covert operations," including Iran in 1953, the abduction of Eichmann in 1960, the Bay of Pigs, U.S. intervention in Chile, and the Rainbow Warrior episode in 1985. "If the book has a major flaw, it is that the narrow title may deprive it of the broad readership it warrants. It is highly recommended."
