Analyzing Intelligence, now in a revised and extensively updated second edition, assesses the state of the profession of intelligence analysis from the practitioners point of view. The contributors—most of whom have held senior positions in the US intelligence community—review the evolution of the field, the rise of new challenges, pitfalls in analysis, and the lessons from new training and techniques designed to deal with 21st century national security problems. This second edition updates this indispensable book with new chapters that highlight advances in applying more analytic rigor to analysis, along with expertise-building, training, and professional development. New chapters by practitioners broaden the original volume’s discussion of the analyst-policymaker relationship by addressing analytic support to the military customer as well as by demonstrating how structured analysis can benefit military commanders on the battlefield. Analyzing Intelligence is written for national security practitioners such as producers and users of intelligence, as well as for scholars and students seeking to understand the nature and role of intelligence analysis, its strengths and weaknesses, and steps that can improve it and lead it to a more recognizable profession. The most comprehensive and up-to-date volume on professional intelligence analysis as practiced in the US Government, Analyzing Intelligence is essential reading for practitioners and users of intelligence analysis, as well as for students and scholars in security studies and related fields.

National security is pervasive in government and society, but there is little scholarly attention devoted to understanding the context, institutions, and processes the U.S. government uses to promote the general welfare. The Oxford Handbook of U.S. National Security aims to fill this gap. Coming from academia and the national security community, its contributors analyze key institutions and processes that promote the peace and prosperity of the United States and, by extension, its allies and other partners. By examining contemporary challenges to U.S. national security, contributors consider ways to advance national interests. The United States is entering uncharted waters. The assumptions and verities of the Washington consensus and the early post-Cold War have broken down. After 15 years of war and the inability of two presidents to set a new long-term U.S. foreign policy approach in place, the uncertainties of the Trump administration symbolize the questioning of assumptions that is now going on as Americans work to re-define their place in the world. This handbook serves as a "how to" guide for students and practitioners to understand the key issues and roadblocks confronting those working to improve national security. The first section establishes the scope of national security highlighting the important debates to bridge the practitioner and scholarly approaches to national security. The second section outlines the major national security actors in the U.S. government, describes the legislative authorities and appropriations available to each institution, and considers the organizational essence of each actor to explain behavior during policy discussions. It also examines the tools of national security such as diplomacy, arms control, and economic statecraft. The third section focuses on underlying strategic approaches to national security addressing deterrence, nuclear and cyber issues, and multilateral approaches to foreign policy. The final section surveys the landscape of contemporary national security challenges. This is a critical resource for anyone trying to understand the complex mechanisms and institutions that govern U.S. national security.

Drawing upon new approaches or archival sources, each author offers fresh perspectives and insight into the nature of national or international security, broadly conceived. This unique collection of essays, engagingly written and reflecting state-of-the-art scholarship, will be of value both to general readers and students of military history, diplomatic history and national and international security studies.

Mission Creep: The Militarization of US Foreign Policy? examines the question of whether the US Department of Defense (DOD) has assumed too large a role in influencing and implementing US foreign policy. After the Cold War, and accelerating after September 11, the United States has drawn upon the enormous resources of DOD in adjusting to the new global environment and challenges arising from terrorism, Islamic radicalism, insurgencies, ethnic conflicts, and failed states. Contributors investigate and provide different perspectives on the extent to which military leaders and DOD have increased their influence and involvement in areas such as foreign aid, development, diplomacy, policy debates, and covert operations. These developments are set in historical and institutional context, as contributors explore the various causes for this institutional imbalance. The book concludes that there has been a militarization of US foreign policy while it explores the institutional and political causes and their implications. “Militarization” as it is used in this book does not mean that generals directly challenge civilian control over policy; rather it entails a subtle phenomenon wherein the military increasingly becomes the primary actor and face of US policy abroad. Mission Creep’s assessment and policy recommendations about how to rebalance the role of civilian agencies in foreign policy decision making and implementation will interest scholars and students of US foreign policy, defense policy, and security studies, as well as policy practitioners interested in the limits and extents of militarization.

Η πτώση του Ατσαλόκαρδου θα έπρεπε να κάνει τα πράγματα πιο εύκολα, αντί γι’ αυτό, όμως, έφερε τον Ντέιβιντ αντιμέτωπο με νέα, βασανιστικά ερωτήματα που κανείς στο Νιουκάγο δεν είναι σε θέση να απαντήσει. Ο αγώνας της ανθρωπότητας εναντίον των Επικών έχει μεταφερθεί τώρα στην Αποκατεστημένη Βαβυλώνα, την πόλη που κάποτε ήταν γνωστή ως Μανχάταν. Μισοβυθισμένη στη θάλασσα κι έχοντας χάσει την αλλοτινή της αίγλη, είναι ένας τόπος όπου η ανθρώπινη ζωή έχει ελάχιστη αξία και βρίσκεται υπό την εξουσία της μυστηριώδους Επικής Ρεγκάλια. Στην προσπάθειά του να βρει τις απαντήσεις που αναζητά, ο Ντέιβιντ θα κληθεί να αναλάβει μια αποστολή γεμάτη απίστευτους κινδύνους, ακόμα πιο τρομακτική και θανάσιμη απ’ τη σύγκρουσή του με τον πανίσχυρο Ατσαλόκαρδο.

Πριν από δέκα χρόνια ο Όλεθρος ήρθε στον κόσμο. Εμφανίστηκε σαν μια εκτυφλωτική λάμψη στον ουρανό και χάρισε υπεράνθρωπες δυνάμεις σε μια πλειάδα καθημερινών ανθρώπων. Πλημμυρισμένος από φόβο και δέος, ο υπόλοιπος κόσμος άρχισε να αποκαλεί τους ανθρώπους αυτούς Επικούς. Οι Επικοί, όμως, δεν είναι φιλικά διακείμενοι προς την ανθρωπότητα. Μαζί με τις απίστευτες ικανότητές τους απέκτησαν και το πάθος της εξουσίας και η απόλυτη εξουσία προϋποθέτει τη συντριβή του ελεύθερου ανθρώπινου πνεύματος. Στις μέρες μας, στο σημείο όπου κάποτε βρισκόταν η πόλη του Σικάγο, ο πανίσχυρος Επικός που είναι γνωστός ως Ατσαλόκαρδος κυβερνά ως τύραννος, προικισμένος με απίστευτη φυσική δύναμη και την ικανότητα να ελέγχει τα στοιχεία της φύσης. Οι φήμες λένε πως οι σφαίρες δεν μπορούν να τον βλάψουν, πως καμιά λεπίδα δεν μπορεί να τον πληγώσει, πως η φωτιά δεν τον αγγίζει... Είναι άτρωτος, ανίκητος. Κανείς δεν τολμά να του αντισταθεί. Κανείς… εκτός από τους Τιμωρούς. Οι Τιμωροί είναι μια μυστηριώδης ομάδα απλών ανθρώπων που έχουν αφιερώσει τη ζωή τους στη μελέτη των Επικών. Σκοπός τους είναι να ανακαλύψουν τα αδύνατα σημεία τους και να καταφέρουν κάποτε να τους αφανίσουν. Ο νεαρός Ντέιβιντ θέλει όσο τίποτα στον κόσμο να γίνει μέλος των Τιμωρών. Λίγο μετά την άφιξή του στο Σικάγο, ο Ατσαλόκαρδος δολοφόνησε τον πατέρα του Ντέιβιντ. Όπως ακριβώς και οι Τιμωροί, ο Ντέιβιντ μελετά εδώ και χρόνια τους Επικούς, καταστρώνοντας σχέδια για την εξάλειψή τους. Το μεγάλο του όπλο στην προσπάθεια αυτή, όμως, δεν είναι κάποιο αντικείμενο αλλά μια ανάμνηση, που οι Τιμωροί έχουν ανάγκη για να εκπληρώσουν την αποστολή τους. Έχει δει τον Ατσαλόκαρδο να ματώνει. Κι η καρδιά του διψά για εκδίκηση.

How does one arrive at a life in politics and policy? What happens to one’s ideals when confronted with the reality that the only way to get things done in Washington is compromise? Who are the men and women who help shape our national agenda, and what drives their work? Dispatches from the Eastern Front provides fascinating, intensely personal, yet universal answers to these central questions. Recounting four decades inside Washington politics, Gerald Felix Warburg brings remarkable candor to a most unusual memoir. An idealistic California Baby Boomer transported to the intimidating world of Capitol Hill policymaking at a young age, Warburg finds himself working to reform nuclear energy, strategic arms control, and foreign policy. As his access and power grow, greater challenges loom: how to maintain principles while cutting deals, and how to balance public purpose with private interests. An eclectic career reveals the slow and often painful development of emotional intelligence for work at the highest reaches of the public arena. Dispatches takes readers inside the closed conference rooms in the U.S. Capitol where leaders strike legislative bargains, to the inner circles of presidential campaigns where advisors jockey for position, and to the firms where well-paid lobbyists use their expertise to advance the interests of corporations and NGOs. Up close and personal profiles of many of our current national leaders emerge. Cycles of action, followed by academic reflection, permit the type of introspection and insight rare in our national politics. With Dispatches from the Eastern Front, Warburg has crafted a highly literate memoir chronicling the political education of a generation, along the way offering a subtle but effective call to the young to enter the public arena. His sage advice tells how, and why, to construct a career in public service, with irrepressibly optimistic counsel that will make this book a political science standard for years to come.
