Sheehan, Michael. International Security: An Analytical Survey. Boulder, CO: Lynne Rienner, 2005.

Fedyszyn, NWCR 59.1 (Winter 2006), says that the author "offers thoughtful commentary on how contemporary scholars should take into account new forces in international relations that demand broader thinking on 'security.'" However, "many of his observations and conclusions are both obvious and repetitive.... While the book has an academic tone and is well footnoted, it remains readily digestible for the layman."

From publisher: When the Japanese invaded Malaya, "Davis switched from the Federated Malay States Police to the intelligence world, where he planned the infiltration of Chinese intelligence agents and British officers into the Malayan peninsula." He also "became an iconic figure in Malaya's colonial history when during the Communist Emergency he confronted Chin Peng, leader of the Communist Party."

According to Peake, Studies 56.4 (Dec. 2012) and Intelligencer 19.3 (Winter-Spring 2013), the author argues that India's three intelligence agencies, which function without a statutory charter, should be put under parliamentary oversight.

These are Senator Shelby's "additional views" on the joint House-Senate committee report on the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Shelby served 4 1/2 years as SSCI chairman and 1 1/2 years as vice chairman. Here he states: "Long before the September 11 attacks, I made no secret of my feelings of disappointment in the U.S. Intelligence Community for its performance in a string of smaller-scale intelligence failures during the last decade. Since September 11 I have similarly hid from no one my belief that the Intelligence Community does not have the decisive and innovative leadership it needs to reform itself and to adapt to the formidable challenges of the 21st century."

Sherlock, Ruth, and Carol Malouf. "Bashar al-Assad's Spy Chief Arrested over Syria Coup Plot." Telegraph (London), 11 May 2015. [http://www.telegraph.co.uk]

The Assad regime has placed Ali Mamlouk, head of Syria's National Security Bureau, "under house arrest after suspecting he was plotting a coup." He "was accused of holding secret talks with countries backing rebel groups and exiled members of the Syrian regime. Prior to Mamlouk's arrest, the Syrian intelligence agencies were "in turmoil.... Last month, Rustum Ghazaleh, the head of the Political Security Directorate, died in hospital after he was physically attacked by men loyal to General Rafiq Shehadeh, his opposite number in military intelligence, who was in turn sacked."

Sherr, James. "Cultures of Spying." National Interest, Winter 1994-1995, 56-62.

This potpourri gets off to a bad start, when the author states that "[d]uring the Second World War, the CIA's precursor, the OSS, mounted a vast cryptographic effort against Germany and Japan." This reader almost gave up on the article at this point. Nonetheless, Sherr makes several interesting observations, connected loosely by the argument that America needs to reexamine its cultural assumptions. One such observation is that Americans have "too much complacency in the view that technology, the weapon of the rich, will always prevail against resourcefulness and guile, the weapons of the poor."

According to former CIA officials, "America's spy network in Iran was exposed more than 10 years ago and about 50 of its local agents were executed or jailed in a devastating setback for United States intelligence operations in the Islamic state. The Iranian agents, who included senior military officers, had been relaying information to their handlers at the CIA's office in Frankfurt, using messages written in invisible ink on the back of letters posted from Iran."
