Bruce Berkowitz and Allan Goodman draw on historical analysis, interviews, and their own professional experience in the intelligence community to provide an evaluation of U.S. strategic intelligence.
"While covert operations grab the headlines, intelligence analysis, carried out by CIA officers and their colleagues who are more professorial than conspiratorial, is more important to America's security. This is a primer to that analytic function."--Foreign Affairs
"Berkowitz and Goodman have performed a great public service.... Their careful analysis makes a major contribution to the sensible assessment of the problems the intelligence community faces now and in the years ahead."--William E. Colby
"A truly significant achievement.... [This] book should be read carefully by the Director of the CIA and by members of the pertinent Congressional committees."--Zbigniew Brzezinski
