Holger Pfahl, retired former head of Germany's counter-espionage service and BND deputy director, "has disappeared on his way back" to Germany where he was slated "to testify in a politically explosive corruption investigation." Pfahl was to return to Munich from Taiwan for "questioning on charges that he received a kickback for the sale of German armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia" while working for Daimler Chrysler after his retirement from government in 1992. "There is speculation that he has gone to ground in mainland China."

"The fate of tens of thousands of Germans who disappeared inside the Soviet Union" after World War II may be solved by the handover this week to the German Red Cross of KGB files containing the "names, addresses, death dates and the site of their graves" of more than 10,000 Germans.

Boyes, Roger. "Secret Service Funds May Have Bolstered Bonn Party War Chests." Times (London), 2 Feb. 2000. [http://www.the-times.co.uk]
According to disclosures on 1 February 2000, "[m]illions of marks from Germany's espionage budget were channelled into secret party funds to strengthen democracy in Spain and Portugal in the 1970s and 1980s. Some may have flowed back to fund election campaigns in Germany." These disclosures "gave another twist to the scandal that has disgraced Helmut Kohl and rocked the [German] political establishment."

Petersen calls this "a solid overview of the case," although Pforzheimer opines that the "use of the word 'Definitive' in the sub-title of this book is at best an exaggeration." Chambers categorizes The Climate of Treason as "perhaps one of the best books on the Cambridge Five. Well written. I enjoyed it immensely." Constantinides recommends reading the revised version, which actually names Blunt as the "Fourth Man."
Cram recommends the book, "despite its numerous errors of fact and interpretation, because it is a good read on the Cambridge spies." Publication of the book forced the exposure of Anthony Blunt. It is "far superior to John Costello's long-winded Mask of Treachery." However, Boyle makes "a grotesque and inexplicable error" when he points to an atomic scientist, codenamed "Basil." "Unsubstantiated claims about Basil's identity tend to downgrade the credibility of Boyle's work."

Clark comment: This is a collection of eight intellectual and intelligent essays: "International Order in a Multicultural World"; "War and the Clash of Ideas"; "Covert Action and Foreign Policy in World Politics"; "Traditions of Political Warfare and Low-Intensity Conflict in Totalitarian Russia and China: A Comparative Study of Continuity and Change"; "Statecraft and Intelligence in the Non-Western World"; "Knowledge and Method in Comparative Intelligence Studies of Non-Western Societies"; "American Policy and the Illusion of Congruent Values"; and "Strategic Intelligence in Cold Wars of Ideas."
Allen, DIJ 1.2, comments that this is a "remarkable" and "fascinating book," while FILS 11.6 finds it "well worth reading." Surveillant 2.6 calls the book "illuminating.... Bozeman, a professor at Sarah Lawrence College, explains how strategic intelligence is the key to successful statecraft in foreign affairs." Warren, Intelligencer 14.2 (Winter-Spring 2005), says that this book "is worth reading by anyone who wants a different perspective on the relationship of Intelligence to American foreign policy."
Economist, 16 Jan. 1993, says Bozeman recognizes that "intelligence and the making of foreign policy have to be interwoven with each other.... This is no ordinary book of reprinted essays: it deserves to be closely studied, in all places where high policy is made." According to a MI 20.2 reviewer, the "most profound assertion the author makes is that the West does not understand the value systems of other cultures.... This is a wonderful book for students of political science, political intelligence, and policy formation."
