Höhne, Heinz. Tr., J. Maxwell Brownjohn. Canaris: Hitler's Master Spy. New York: Doubleday, 1979. Lanham, MD: Cooper Square, 1999.
From publisher: "What emerges in this definitive biography is a panoramic view of the rise and fall of Nazism as reflected in the destiny of one man who hopes, for patriotic purposes, to harness evil, only to be destroyed by it."
Höhne, Heinz. Codeword: Direktor: The Story of the Red Orchestra. New York: Coward, McCann, & Geoghegan, 1971. London: Secker & Warburg, 1971. New York: Ballantine, 1982. [pb]
To Pforzheimer, this "well documented" book "presents a dramatic account of the confrontation between the Soviet ring and the Nazi counterespionage organization." The author contends that both German and Russians "have greatly exaggerated the impact of the ring on the course of the war."

According to NameBase, "Hoehne and Zolling's book is based on a series they wrote for Der Spiegel in 1971.... The authors interviewed Org members and drew on personal papers and government documents." Pforzheimer sees this as "a relatively objective description of Gehlen's career and his subsequent fall, although there are some errors in both facts and details." Similarly, Constantinides believes the reader will find the work "objective and accurate in some of its broad conclusions and judgments ... and not so reliable on others and on a number of details."
More harshly, the reviewer for Studies 16.3 (Fall 1972) sees this book as both "tendentious and inaccurate." The book's description of "Gehlen's G-2 career in the German Army is very laudatory," as is "the description of the Gehlen Organization's battle with the East German Service under Wollweber." After that, however, the book is clearly anti-BND. Much of the book "is sheer garbage" and "has far too many errors."

Holden-Rhodes, James F. "Kim Revisited: Human Intelligence and Drug Trafficking." American Intelligence Journal 14, no 1 (Autumn/Winter 1993): 33-36.
The author argues that U.S. counterdrug "efforts to date have been predictable and costly, and have shown little return on investment," and points to the "failure of DoD elements to provide support to drug law enforcement agencies that is usable."

1. Sharing the Secrets: Open Source Intelligence and the War on Drugs. Westport, CT: Praeger, 1997.
According to Turner, IJI&C 12.1, this work presents a brief, "useful[,] and instructive" critique of U.S. anti-drug policies and activities. However, the author "ultimately falls short" on his promise to show how open-source intelligence can be made "a fundamental part of the drug war."

Hollingsworth, Mark, and Nick Fielding. Defending the Realm: MI5 and the Shayler Affair. London: Deutsch, 1999.
Rufford, Sunday Times (London), 26 Sep. 1999, calls this "an intriguing account of Shayler's experiences as a spy and his subsequent imprisonment and exile. It is a rare glimse into the workings of Britain's domestic intelligence service. Although it gives away no secrets (it has passed the government censor), the material is illuminating.... Critics ... point out that just because the government censor has approved the book does not mean to say it is accurate, merely that its contents do not endanger national security. Certainly, there are some disconcerting errors of fact.... Notwithstanding, it is an important book that deserves to be read outside the normal circle of spook-watchers."
Hollingsworth, Mark, and Richard Norton-Taylor. Blacklist: The Inside Story of Political Vetting. London: Hogarth, 1988.
Hannant, I&NS 4.4, notes that the authors examine the operation of Britain's postwar security screening or political vetting system. The two authors are journalists, and their work is "likely to leave the academic audience craving more official documentation and a broader theoretical underpinning." In addition, the authors "repeat the accepted view that vetting is almost entirely a Cold War phenomenon." That notion "is utterly erroneous."
Holloway, David. Stalin and the Bomb: The Soviet Union and Atomic History, 1939-1956. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1994.
Legvold, FA 74.2, (Mar.-Apr. 1995), says this "account is ... utterly engrossing. To be able at last to glimpse the people at work behind the shroud ... makes this a hard book to put down. As for spies..., only one seems to have been important: the British atomic scientist, Klaus Fuchs. His contribution to the Soviet atomic bomb, however, was large and direct. The hydrogen bomb the Soviets developed on their own." Surveillant 4.2 calls Holloway's work a "spellbinding ... history of Soviet nuclear policy." See also, David Holloway, "Soviet Nuclear History: Sources for Stalin and the Bomb," CWIHPB 4 (Fall 1994), pp. 1-9.
