Zelikow, FA 78.3 (May-Jun. 1999), comments that the author's "knowledge of history is sound, and her narrative is concise and smooth." For Mulcahy, APSR 94.2, the author's work "is well grounded in the archival sources" and "is well organized and clearly written." This is a "worthy, if narrowly focused, comparative case study."

"Last month a chagrined CIA admitted that it had no spies in India able to tip off the agency that the new government was planning to explode a nuclear device. Now comes news that the CIA is beginning the biggest recruitment drive in its history to beef up its clandestine operations, which fell into neglect in the post-Cold War rush to cut the agency's budget. In addition, the CIA plans to reopen some of its overseas bureaus that were cut when the Soviet Union went out of business.

"This is a good thing.... The failure of US intelligence to detect the Indian bomb comes as a direct result of the overzealous cuts made in the mistaken and naive belief that with the Soviet Union gone, the need for intelligence was reduced.... The need for the United States to keep informed in the fractured and multipolar world of today argues in favor of enhancing this country's intelligence capabilities."
