Long, David E. The Anatomy of Terrorism. New York: The Free Press, 1990.
Clark comment: Long was assistant director of the State Department's Office of Counter Terrorism. Surveillant 1.1 says the book "explores the social, political, and economic factors that help shape the face of terrorism"; it includes "methods for combating it and protecting us from its effects." Motley, IJI&C 5:3, adds that "while interesting to read, it offers little that is new."
Long, David F. Gold Braid and Foreign Relations: Diplomatic Activities of U.S. Naval Officers, 1798-1883. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 1988.
Bates, NIPQ, Spring 1996, extols this as an "elegant" book that suffers from "some slipshod editing." It is a "series of about 270 vignettes describing some 500 incidents where U.S. Naval officers were involved in the creation or implementation of foreign policy." There is "[n]o specific intelligence emphasis, although almost every one of the ventures described had an unspoken mission to gather intelligence."
Long, Emily. "Defense Ends Performance-based Pay for Intelligence Employees." Government Executive.com, 6 Aug. 2010. [http://www.govexec.com]
"In an Aug. 5 memorandum, Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence James Clapper ... wrote that except for National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency employees, the intelligence workforce will move from pay-for-performance to a compensation system similar to the General Schedule.... Clapper wrote that Defense still is committed to a 'performance-driven culture' and will be awarding bonuses, awards and quality step increases based on how well employees do their jobs.... Clapper said the process for moving to a GS-like system has yet to be determined, adding no employees will lose pay as a result of the change."
Long, Helen. Safe Houses Are Dangerous. [UK]: Abson Books, 1989.
Surveillant 1.1: This is the "story of the evasion line; a web of safe houses spread out over occupied France, its heart in Marseille, which sheltered servicemen on the run."
Long, John W. "Plot and Counter-plot in Revolutionary Russia: Chronicling the Bruce Lockhart Conspiracy, 1918." Intelligence and National Security 10, no. 1 (Jan. 1995): 122-143.
The author's conclusion: "Thus, with the evidence now at hand, the famous 'Lockhart Plot' can at last be seen for what it was: on the one hand, a real, if pitiful, anti-Soviet conspiracy concocted (or perhaps deliberately provoked) by the megalomaniacal Sidney Reilly in likely collusion with the eager but inexperienced Bruce Lockhart, and, on the other, a superb example of police provocation brilliantly conceived and expertly executed by the crafty agents of the Cheka."

The NGA director argues for the adoption of ABI throughout the Intelligence Community.
Long, Lonnie M., and Gary B. Blackburn. Unlikely Warriors: The Army Security Agency's Secret War in Vietnam 1961-1973. iUniverse, 2013.
For Peake, Studies 58.3 (Sep. 2014), this "story of the ASA's combat and operational roles" in Vietnam "is a significent tribute to the ASA's little-known role in the war."
Long, Phil. "Former Intelligence Officer Gets Life Sentence in Tampa." Miami Herald, 27 Sep. 2001. [http://www.miami.com]
On 27 September 2001, George Trofimoff was sentenced to life in prison.
Long, Phil. "Spy Suspect Bragged of Deeds, Prosecutor Says." Miami Herald, 21 Jun. 2000. [http://www.herald.com]
On 30 June 2000, Assistant U.S. Attorney Walter Furr asked a federal magistrate in Tampa to keep George Trofimoff in jail while awaiting trial. "Furr detailed how the U.S. government got on the accused spy's trail, and the trap that federal agents laid for him that led to his arrest. The heart of the government's case is "a six-hour interview in Melbourne [Florida] in February 1999, during which the prosecutor said Trofimoff spoke freely about spying for the Soviets for 25 years, beginning in Germany in 1969.... Western intelligence agencies got on Trofimoff's trail, Furr said, following the 1992 defection to Britain of former KGB archivist Vasili Mitrokhin."
Long, Renata Eley. In the Shadow of the Alabama: The British Foreign Office and the American Civil War. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 2015.
From publisher: "This book looks at an allegation of betrayal made against a young Foreign Office clerk, Victor Buckley, who, it was claimed, leaked privileged information to agents of the southern States during the American Civil War. As a consequence, the CSS Alabama narrowly escaped seizure by the British government and proceeded to wage war on American shipping."
Long, Stephen J.K. "Strategic Disorder, the Office of Policy Coordination and the Inauguration of US Political Warfare against the Soviet Bloc, 194850." Intelligence and National Security 27, no. 4 (Aug. 2012): 459-487.
"The US resort to political warfare against the Eastern Bloc was on the one hand too limited and small scale to achieve results....On the other hand, these activities were sufficiently conspicuous and threatening to arouse the concerted interest of the Soviet and local communist secret police services.... Beyond the fundamental strategic flaw that liberation pursued solely through political warfare was unfeasible, the entire organization of the political warfare campaign was beset by bureaucratic inconsistencies and tensions."
