Peake, Studies 49.3 (2005), says that the author "gives us a genuine inside look at the FBI and his own life. Both make absorbing reading.... [I]intelligence professionals will be ... interested in his insights into the familiar counterintelligence cases of the era." Smith also provides "very candid comments about the directors under whom he served." This is "is a valuable contribution to current intelligence issues and to the literature of the profession."


Smith, I.C., and Nigel West. Historical Dictionary of Chinese Intelligence. Lanham, MD: Scarecrow Press, 2012.

To Peake, Studies 56.3 (Sep. 2012) and Intelligencer 19.3 (Winter-Spring 2013), this work provides "a valuable mix of case studies, institutional descriptions, organizational relationships, and commentary on key personnel." The book "documents the extent of Chinese global reach in espionage, including cyberespionage, and is the best reference work on the subject to date." Mattis, Studies 56.4 (Dec. 2012), is less than enthusiastic about this work, calling it "incomplete, often misleading, and ultimately" providing "a shaky foundation for building understanding of the challenge" represented by the PRC. Nevertheless, "on its technical merits, the book makes a lot of material readily accessible."

Constantinides notes that Smith served with the CIA from 1950 to 1973. This book looks at the CIA "from the perspective of the case officer" and "gives the reader the feel and smell of operations." Smith does not clarify his motives for publishing these memoirs, which leaves the reader unsure of the author's objectivity.
