Jackson, Ian. The Economic Cold War: America, Britain and East-West Trade, 1948-63. New York: Palgrave, 2001.

Heiss, The Historian 65 (2003), calls this work "a fine addition to recent scholarship that offers a compelling account of U.S. export-control policy during the Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy administrations.... In addition to clarifying U.S. policy on the export-control issue," the author "also demonstrates that the Anglo-American 'special relationship' during this period was often fraught with conflicts and difficulties over the issue of export controls.... Of special note here is Jackson's excellent discussion of Britain's determination to undertake relaxation, even if such a move generated U.S. displeasure."

Hamer, Cryptologia 37.4 (2013), finds that much of this book "is a verbatim compilation of the text from declassified NSA files," including the TICOM materials. The "author/editor's 'too-perfect verbatim' approach has resulted in the inclusion of inevitable errors that were included in the original TICOM coverage." The work does pull together in one place material available elsewhere.

"Arguments can be made whether or not NSA should have the job of protecting our civilian critical infrastructure. Many security experts and civil libertarians would argue that this job should not be given to an agency cloaked in secrecy and with a record of surveillance abuses. But absent another agency with the authority and responsibility to do the job, we can expect DOD and NSA to become the de facto defenders of our networks."
