Description

The Encyclopedia of U.S. Intelligence is the first definitive work to chronicle the history, profile prominent figures, examine world-renowned agencies, and mark key events that have shaped the present U.S. intelligence landscape. With contributions from scholars, researchers, academics, and practicing professionals, it explores issues that reflect the public interest about American intelligence at every level from the public to the private sector. The encyclopedia covers topics related to the field of U.S. intelligence practices, agencies, and history, presented in a holistic manner that reflects both academic and applied perspectives. Going beyond a basic overview of the intelligence community and its functions, the entries offer authoritative insight on historical issues and events, significant personalities, legislation, education and training, and current information about terrorism and counterterrorism. Entries detail not only the practice and profession of intelligence within the federal government, but also criminal intelligence and analysis and the organization and activities of foreign intelligence services. They reflect the interdisciplinary nature of intelligence analysis and the variety of government agencies that make up the intelligence community. This two-volume set is a must-have reference for government agencies, research and university libraries, and individuals interested in the development and practice of intelligence in the United States. The Encyclopedia is also available in a continually updated online version.
