"[N]either the mistakes nor the successes of Britain's internment policy can be attributed exclusively to MI5. To do so is to fail to understand its role within the British government. MI5 did not and does not make policy decisions."

This is a coffee-table book -- pictures and text -- on British intelligence. The narrative is better than one might expect.
Grant, Robert M. U-Boat Hunters: Codebreakers, Divers and the Defeat of the U-Boats, 1914-1918. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2003.
Bath, NIPQ 20.3, finds that "there is a wealth of information on the cryptographic history of the First World War" in this book. The author "is recognized as a leading expert" on the U-boat war of 1914-1918, and this work "expands upon and updates previous works." For Kruh, Cryptologia 30.2 (Apr. 2006), this is a "groundbreaking book." An "incredible story emerges" from the author's "digging through the radio interception records, telegrams, and the records of the Admiralty Salvage Department."

Constantinides finds some "interesting anecdotes" in this work based largely on German records captured in 1945. However, such is not the overall pattern of the book. Primarily, the focus is on the author's statistical methodology; it is possible to wonder whether "the accumulated facts are properly put in perspective."
Grant, Sam, and Peter C. Oleson. "Dual Use of Intelligence Technologies: Breast Cancer Detection Research." Studies in Intelligence (Semiannual ed. no. 1, 1997): 27-34.
"On 4 April 1995, the television networks' evening news programs carried an unusual item. The Acting Director of Central Intelligence, Adm. William O. Studeman, held a press conference at the National Photographic Interpretation Center (NPIC) to address the topic of breast cancer. Also participating were the chairman and vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI), Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and Senator Robert Kerrey of Nebraska, and Dr. Susan Blumenthal, the deputy assistant secretary of Health and Human Services and head of the Women's Health Office of the Public Health Service.
"Admiral Studeman announced that the Intelligence Community (IC) had been involved in an effort to identify and promote technologies developed within the IC that had promise in the national fight against breast cancer. He said this effort was to continue with the CIA, National Reconnaissance Office, and Community Management Staff (CMS) each contributing to the effort."
Grant, Zalin. Facing the Phoenix: The CIA and the Political Defeat of the United States in Vietnam. New York: Norton, 1991.
Surveillant 1.3 says this book is "based on the central figure of Tran Ngoc Chau ... [whose] plan to defeat communists by community action ... was perverted by CIA." Wirtz, I&NS 7.2, concludes that "by describing the experiences of many of the officials involved in covert operations during the war, Grant has made a significant contribution to both the history of the conflict and the story of the CIA's role in Saigon."
According to NameBase, "Grant believes that certain players had a good handle on how to neutralize the enemy through local political action and enlightened aid programs. Just as they were making significant progress, however, they were defeated by corruption in Saigon and by big-bang, big-bucks conventional-warfare mongers like William Westmoreland.... This book is valuable because the author's experience in Vietnam (he speaks the language), along with his many contacts and interviews, add to our impression of what was happening in the country."
