Diab, Youssef. "Army Officer Sentenced to 20 Years for Collaboration." Daily Star (Beirut), 18 Jun. 2011. [http://www.dailystar.com.lb]
On 17 June 2011, a Military Tribunal "sentenced Army Col. Mansour Diab to 20 years hard labor after finding him guilty of supplying Israel with documents and classified information about the army as well as military and civilian sites."
Diamond, Sigmund. The Compromised Campus: The Collaboration of Universities with the Intelligence Community, 1945-1955. New York: Oxford University Press, 1992. HV6285D53
Surveillant 2.4 comments that while the "basic facts are revealing," the author's "conclusions seem more based on personal experience and still open wounds than supported by events." Reinforcing that appraisal, Savage, I&NS 9.1, finds that Compromised Campus suffers from a "general disorganization. It is a barrel of information, data and polemic rather than a tightly organized argument." Diamond was one of those faculty members purged by Harvard because he would not inform on his colleagues. The "bulk of the book is ... about the Red scare of the 1940s and 1950s."
Noting that "Diamond focuses mostly on Harvard, which is the subject of six of his ten chapters," Freeland, Journal of Higher Education, Mar. 1994, adds that "[t]hree additional chapters are devoted to Yale, and a final essay discusses the FBI's efforts to identify subversives at a large number of other American campuses.... [He] seems to have done very little interviewing of individuals involved in the incidents he recounts. Basically, he relied heavily on the materials he obtained from the government, particularly the FBI, through his persistent FOIA requests." The book does not present a coherent overview of the subject, but rather a "collage of snapshots and vignettes." Diamond "believes the real issue ... is the existence of a systematic and covert 'institutional relationship' between Harvard and the federal intelligence apparatus.... In support of his thesis Diamond provides some fascinating and troubling information... In the end, however, Diamond's fragments cannot sustain his central claims."
Wirtz, IJI&C 8.2, notes that "Compromised Campus is not a detailed history of intelligence-academic interaction.... Instead, it is an indictment of Harvard and Yale McCarthy-era administrators and luminaries for acting as FBI informants." According to Whitehead, JAH, Jun. 1993, Diamond "demonstrates ... that Harvard as well as Yale and other major universities fully cooperated with the FBI, often at the level of the university president, in providing information about the political activities of faculty and students.... His account achieves a remarkable balance of documentation and passion.... This is an important book that questions the inner culture and values of the nation's leading universities."
NameBase feels that "Diamond has the inside scoop after numerous FOIA requests filed with the FBI, access to private collections and archives, and dozens of interviews. Much of this book deals with the FBI on campus and their use of informants (including Henry Kissinger and William F. Buckley), although it breaks off before the FBI got really nasty in the late 1960s. That still leaves two revealing chapters on Harvard's Russian Research Center.... This book is essential for anyone interested in the CIA-campus connection."

"Supervision ... is still unfinished business, as was clearly demonstrated by the difficulties experienced in the work of the commission of inquiry into the terrorist attack of 11 March 2004." The Higher Defense Intelligence Center (CESID) was created in 1977. The reforms of May 2002 replaced CESID with the Centro Nacional de Inteligencia (CNI). The author argues that, even with recent reform efforts, parliamentary and judicial "supervision of CNI remains a virtual fallacy."

"Since the 1980s, and especially since the end of the Cold War, the academic discipline of Intelligence Studies has undergone a progressive revolution in Spain." Nevertheless, "Intelligence Studies remains only an incipient discipline in Spain."

Surveillant 3.1 says this book "recreates what the jungle fighting was like." Short, I&NS 8.2, finds the book "compelling reading." It is a "detailed and sympathetic account.... SAS must surely have provided the highest possible return on an investment of military capital." According to Yang, WIR 13.6, "Dickens offers a micro ... view of the Borneo confrontation as seen through the eyes of the participants.... Although the text is somewhat awkward at times, the gems of information on counterinsurgency operations are well worth the trouble."

Government privatization of covert activities is of particular concern."

The Digital Bibliography of the Russell J. Bowen Collection of Works on Intelligence, Security, and Covert Activities. Washington, DC: National Intelligence Book Center, [?].
Peake, Reader's Guide, supplies the following information: The database is known as Bowen Digital Bibliography (BDB). It has over 8,000 entries -- 6,500 in English and about 2,000 in other languages (approximately half of which are in Russian). About 500 of the entries are from newspapers and journals. This is "the largest known digital database of books and articles on or related to intelligence ... in the world." The remaining 3,000 items in the Bowen Collection "will eventually be included." The BDB's software program is "extremely fast and easy to use." The database can be searched on the basis of "specific titles, authors, participants, keywords, dates, publishers, or some combination of these options." This is a "read-only" database -- what you buy is what you get; updates require an additional purchase.
Jeffreys-Jones notes that the BDB has "wider indexing than the Library of Congress system." The database comes with "a copyright-protective security key, which means it cannot be networked." See Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones, "Manual Indices and Digital Pathways: Developments in United States Intelligence Bibliography," Intelligence and National Security 9, no. 3 (Jul. 1994): 555-559.
