Miller, Joan. One Girl's War: Personal Exploits in MI5's Most Secret Station. Dublin: Brandon, 1986.
Steiner, I&NS 3.2, calls this "a delightful and entertaining account of the war-time exploits" of a young woman "who entered the secret world of intelligence and became personal assistant to Maxwell Knight,... Chief of MI5's B5 (b) section."
Miller, John. All Them Cornfields and Ballet in the Evening. Kingston upon Thames, UK: Hodgson Press, 2010.
Peake, Studies 55.2 (Jun. 2011), notes that the author is a British journalist who "spent 40 years as a newspaper correspondent in the Soviet Union and Russia.... Miller's story is worthy of attention in an intelligence journal because of his encounters with several subjects of intelligence interest -- Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, and Kim Philby." This work "broadens one's understanding of Soviet society, adds colorful details to some well-known Cold War espionage cases, and is an unqualified pleasure to read."

Peake, Studies 48.3 (2004), calls this book "a worthwhile working-level view of the pre-9/11 counterterrorist problems from a New York perspective."
Miller, Judith. "Arms Aide Who Quit Assails U.N. on Iraq." New York Times, 1 Aug. 1999. [http://www.nytimes.com]
In an article in the inaugural issue of Talk monthly magazine, former UN Special Commission head Richard Butler accuses "Secretary General Kofi Annan of trying to destroy the commission because it was 'too independent.' Butler ... also savagely criticizes virtually everyone else associated with the protracted effort to disarm Iraq. The exception is the Clinton Administration, which he says, contrary to allegations by Scott Ritter..., was largely alone in its efforts to 'hold Saddam's feet to the fire.'"
Miller, Judith. "Holy Warriors: Dissecting a Terror Plot From Boston to Amman." New York Times, 15 Jan. 2001. [http://www.nytimes.com]
This article traces a plot foiled by the Jordanians to kill "hundreds of Americans, Israelis and others who were visiting Jordan to celebrate the dawn of the millennium."
Miller, Judith. "Holy Warriors: Killing for the Glory of God, in a Land Far From Home." New York Times, 16 Jan. 2001. [http://www.nytimes.com]
"If the international terrorism that has haunted Americans for the last decade has a home, it is Afghanistan, the place that comes closest to the extremists' ideal of a state ruled by the strict code of Islamic law." The CIA "estimates that as many as 50,000 to 70,000 militants from 55 countries have trained [in Afghanistan] in recent years."
Miller, Judith, and Sarah Lyall. "Hunting bin Laden's Allies, U.S. Extends Net to Europe." New York Times, 21 Feb. 2001. [http://www.nytimes.com]
"Spurred by growing international alarm about Osama bin Laden's militant networks, the police in Britain and Germany have recently arrested more than a dozen Islamic radicals. American officials say some of those arrested were plotting terrorist attacks in Europe and elsewhere."
Miller, Kevin P. [CDR/USN] "UAVs Hold Promise for No-Fly Zone Enforcement." U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 127.9 (Sep. 2001), 38-41.
"Transferring no-fly zone patrols from manned fighters to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) would increase coverage time and intelligence collection, as well as reduce political and monetary costs and military risk."
Miller, Leslie. "Revised Sept. 11 Panel Report Released." Associated Press, 13 Sep. 2005. [http://www.washingtonpost.com]
On 13 September 2005, "[a] new version of the Sept. 11 commission's report ... was released ... with recently declassified information about terrorist threats and holes in airport security before the attacks. At the request of the Sept. 11 commissioners, the Bush administration declassified much, but not all, of the material it had blacked out before turning the report over to the National Archives in January."
Miller, Michael B. Shanghai on the Metro: Spies, Intrigue and the French between the Wars. Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 1995.
Jackson, I&NS 12.4, finds this a "fascinating study" of interwar France. The work is "based on a truly formidable body of research.... Particularly impressive is the author's use of the German archives to gauge the effectiveness of French counter-intelligence." However, the product is a "jungle of narrative detail" within which the author's overall argument is difficult to keep in sight.
Miller, Nathan. Spying for America: The Hidden History of U.S. Intelligence. New York: Paragon House, 1989. New York: Dell, 1990. [pb]
Surveillant 1.3 calls Spying for America a "lively history of U.S. intelligence operations ... [which] raises important ethical and legal questions." On the other hand, Naftali, I&NS 6.1, finds the book "disappointing" in that "there is no evidence that Miller makes any serious use of primary documents" and, by omitting too many "noteworthy cases," the book "fails to provide even a simple overview of important American special operations."
For Johnson, IJI&C 4.1, this book is a "useful contribution ... surveying the evolution of American intelligence from the days of the Revolutionary War to the contemporary era." Although "many of the 'revelations' in Miller's book [are] old hat" and "academicians will wish for more extensive documentation," the book is "well written and ... reaches sensible conclusions about modern intelligence." Jeffreys-Jones, I&NS 6.4, finds "occasional oversights" in Miller's references, but adds that the work "is the best bibliographic guide in its field."

The author's thoughts are drawn from his 2 years (2007-2009) on the NSC staff as director for Afghanistan.

Miller, Russell. Codename TRICYCLE: The True Story of the Second World War's Most Extraordinary Double Agent. London: Secker & Warburg, 2004.
Peake, Studies 49.1 (2005), finds that the author "adds new details to the TRICYCLE story.... He provides many interesting new facts about the Double Cross System and TRICYCLE's handing by MI5, although analysis of their significance in some cases is open to challenge.... [A]lthough Popov was unquestionably a valuable double agent for four years, nothing in the book or his file supports the author's contention that TRICYCLE was the 'most extraordinary double agent' in the Second World War.... [T]he careless errors and many undocumented comments place the book in the easy-to-read-but-of-limited-scholarly-value category."
