1. Environmental Security. Minneapolis, MN: University of Minnesota Press, 2002.

Krause, Environmental Change & Security Project Report 9 (2003), sees Dalby's work as "a serious attempt to grapple with the broader issues that arise from any attempt to understand modern society's relationship to the environment, and to the threats and insecurities emeging from the complex ... interaction of man and nature."

2. Security and Environmental Change. Cambridge, UK: Polity, 2009.

Salehyan, Perspectives on Politics 9.1 (Mar. 2011), says that this work "presents a comprehensive overview of the ways that environmental challenges affect human security at multiple levels, including individuals, countries, and the planet as a whole."

"[I]f one takes the global situation of burgeoning environmental degradation and global change seriously, then it is clear that security agencies need substantial reform to incorporate a focus on 'domestic' sources of insecurity in the form of unsustainable economic activities and on the international dangers of continued 'development' as it has been practiced for the last half century."

The focus here is "on analyzing key issues that Members ... may wish to consider in evaluating existing or proposed NSP [national security professionals] initiatives, including the fundamental purpose; the concept of integration; the scope of participation; practical modalities for making the program work; the role of centralized oversight; incentive structures for individuals and agencies; recruiting; and congressional oversight. For context, the report also describes early NSP proposals; U.S. government strategic guidance; the experiences of the NSPD [National Security Professional Development] program to date; and significant congressional initiatives."

"Fears that the United States, Britain and other English-speaking countries are using a cold-war eavesdropping network to gain a commercial edge roused passions across Europe [on 23 February 2000], even after Washington and London roundly denied the notion."

Dallin, Alexander. Black Box: KAL 007 and the Superpowers. Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1985.

Miller, IJI&C 1.1: Dallin "attempts to reconstruct the incident. In addition, he reviews various hypotheses regarding the Soviet Air Defense Command and 'insofar as it is relevant,' agencies of the United States. Finally he deduces some lessons concerning the behavior patterns of the two superpowers in the managing of international crises.... [He] essentially conclude[s] that the 007 flight was planned by U.S. intelligence ... [but] is quite circumspect and cautious."

Dallin, David J. "Operation Kidnap: Berlin's Soviet Underworld." American Mercury 74 (May 1952): 55-62.

Accuses Russians of kidnapping anti-Soviet dissidents and calls for West to do more to stop such activity.

Dallin, David J. Soviet Espionage. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1955. London: Oxford University Press, 1956.

Pforzheimer calls Dallin an "authoritative source" who presents "one of the most comprehensive treatments of the subject"; the book is "limited to [the] period prior to the mid-fifties." To Chambers, the book is the "first rigorous Western look at the Soviet intelligence services -- the ultimate reference on the period before the use of the term KGB." Constantinides notes that the perspective of time has diminished the importance of this early effort on this subject.

Dalrymple, William. Return of a King: The Battle for Afghanistan, 1839-42. New York: Knopf, 2013.

Peake, Studies 57.4 (Dec. 2013), says the author "does a magnificent job of describing the intricacies of 19th century Afghan tribal politics and what would today be called their insurgency approach to warfare. He demonstrates what can happen when these factors are ignored by politicians."

Damaskin, Igor, and Geoffrey Elliott. Kitty Harris: The Spy with Seventeen Names. London: St. Ermin's, 2001.

Unsinger, IJI&C 17.1, finds that the authors "use Kitty Harris's life to explain a great deal about the USSR's International Department and its personnel." The Soviet files used by the authors "describe Harris not as a case officer, but simply a cutout for [Earl] Browder [from 1923 to 1929], doing his courier work." During World Warr II, "she began doing work in support of Soviet espionage efforts in the atomic energy sphere, in her usual capacity as courier and cutout." The book "is somewhat of a disappointment," in that it has "just a few quotes from papers in the KGB's Harris files."
