Wilhelm, Richard J. "The New NRO: A CMS Perspective." American Intelligence Journal 17, no. 1/2 (1996): 53-55.
As Executive Director for Intelligence Community Affairs, the author heads the DCI's Community Management Staff (CMS). He concludes that the "NRO may find itself in increasing competition with new sources of intelligence.... [For example,] SPOT imagery has already proved its value to many traditional NRO customers.... [T]he NRO must look far into the future,... and plan to produce systems that will offer unique access from an overhead perspective rather than only what has been successful in the past."

According to Cain, JIH 4.2, the author resigned from Australia's Office of National Assessments (ONA) "in a blaze of publicity in protest at the decision of the Liberal Party-led government ... to join the invasion of Iraq in March 2003." Wilkie maintains that he "realised that the many documents and reports he had handled in ONA were being misused by the government to justify a war."

Wilkinson, Nicholas. Secrecy and the Media: The Official History of the United Kingdom's D-Notice System. London: Routledge, 2009.
Peake, Studies 54.1 (Mar. 2010) and Intelligencer 54.1 (Winter-Spring 2010), notes that this is "the official history" of the D-Notice System. The author "served as secretary to the Defence Press and Broadcasting Advisory Committee (DPBAC), the body that oversees" the D-Notice System. Wilkinson traces the DPBAC's "evolution in great detail" from the first such committee in 1912 until 1997. The work "is documented by official sources that are cited. It should be of great interest to all those concerned with national security, intelligence, and freedom of the press."

Miller, IJI&C 1.4, calls this the "best single book that I have read on the subject." It "says everything that needs to be said, and does it cogently and with style." The author "emphasizes the importance of the peculiar problems that terrorism presents to liberal states.... [S]uperb."
Wilkinson, Paul, ed. Technology and Terrorism. London: Frank Cass, 1993.
Robertson, I&NS 10.1, notes that this material originally appeared as an issue of the journal Terrorism and Political Violence, Vol. 5, no. 2 (Summer 1993). "Some of the essays are of very specialized interest being concerned with the physical aspects of airport security.... It is perhaps ironic that ... the most thoughtful of the essays is the one which concludes that terrorists have not made great changes in technology." Choice, May 1995, adds that the "essays ... are authored by ... experts in security measures, chemistry, and the military and government. All are well written. A few involve technical language but are still most readable."

For Lane, I&NS 13.2, this "is among the more stylish of the latest crop of memoirs of the Second World War in occupied Europe.... [The author] planned and then led the 'Clowder' mission to the Slovene Partisans.... This is a splendidly written and rounded account of the early chapters in a fascinating and extraordinary life."

Surveillant 3.4/5 says that there is a "good section on the complications of running an organization dedicated to Special Operations which must cut across all areas of turf from other Bureaus, and the organization itself was divided between helping resistance groups and guerrillas, or engaging in subversion and sabotage." According to Seaman, I&NS 11.2, this book is not so much a biography "as an examination of the most significant part of Gubbins' professional career as the driving force behind SOE." Both of the authors had a "close professional and personal attachment" to Gubbins, and they are able to give the book "a real insider's view."
