Hopkirk, Peter. The Great Game: On Secret Service in High Asia. London: John Murray, 1990. [pb] London: Oxford University Press, 1991. The Great Game: The Struggle for Empire in Central Asia. New York: Kodansha America, 1992. New York: Kodansha/Globe, 1994. [pb]

Surveillant 3.1 calls the book an "account of the epic struggle" by the agents of Great Britain and Tsarist Russia "in their attempts to conquer, or keep free, vast regions" in Central Asia. Hitchens, WPNWE, 5-11 Oct. 1992, comments that "innumerable pressing matters [today], from the status of Tibet to the continued Russian occupation of some Japanese home islands, date from the opening moves in the Great Game."

For Popplewell, I&NS 6.4, Hopkirk's work as "a masterly epic of action, in which the author uses his formidable powers of description to relate both secret missions and military campaigns." To Poth, IJI&C 7.1, the book is "something of a disappointment in detailing Russo-British intelligence activities on India's northwest frontier." It is "essentially a series of adventure stories"; however, it is "entertaining and informative."

Lebson, WIR 13.2, says that Hopkirk has produced an "easy-to-follow narrative about explorers in this vast, unknown region." He is "very effective at explaining the patterns of behavior of the key players and of the indigenous people." He also "describes the methods used by many of the protagonists in developing military information from their travels."

According to Surveillant 4.1, the author "describes the attempt of Wilhelm II of Germany to harness the forces of militant Islam against Britain's imperial interests in central Asia during WWI.... Hopkirk weaves a romantic yet factual tale of intrigue.... The book covers, in detail, some of the shadowy episodes of the period." Popplewell, I&NS 10.2 (Apr. 1995), says that "Hopkirk's work "ignores the Bengali revolutionary movement almost as much as it ignores British intelligence. Though he claims that the work 'draws on the secret service documents' of the times, it is unclear what these documents are."

Hopper, D. Ian. "FBI Can Spy More Widely on Web than Thought." Chicago Sun Times, 18 Nov. 2000. [http://www.suntimes.com]

"The FBI's [Carnivore] e-mail surveillance tool ... can retrieve all communications that go through an Internet service ... a recent test found, according to bureau documents." The Washington-based Electronic Privacy Information Center "obtained the FBI documents providing the test results as part of [FOIA] litigation.... While law enforcement officials have admitted that Carnivore can capture much more than e-mail, including Internet chats and Web browsing, FBI officials insist it is only used to copy e-mail to or from a criminal suspect in accordance with a court order. Opponents say the system's secrecy keeps the public from knowing what it can really do."

Hopple, Gerald W., and Bruce W. Watson, eds. The Military Intelligence Community. Boulder, CO.: Westview, 1986.

Petersen sees this as "a useful collection of articles on organization and functions." Gordon, IJI&C 1.2, disagrees: "[T]he reader is asked to pay $29.50 for a poorly edited, meandering paperback of 300 pages that provides neither new insight, revelation, nor controversy." This is a "collection of eighteen articles.... Some are very good [Part IV & articles by Christianson, Beitler, Goldman, & Holman], but as many are inadequate.... Tactical intelligence is barely mentioned throughout the text.... This book won't earn a place on the professional's bookshelf."
