In a statement released by the official New China News Agency on 10 April 2000, PRC Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhu Bangzao "expressed strong dissatisfaction ... with CIA disciplinary action taken against several employees in connection with the bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade and once again rejected U.S. conclusions that human error caused the attack."

W. T. (Bill) Robertson, "dismissed in October 1975 as director of the Australian Secret Intelligence Service, has placed in the National Archives a statement that disputes the reasons [then-Prime Minister Gough] Whitlam gave for sacking him.... While not saying so explicitly, it strongly implies that Whitlam,... lied about the circumstances of Robertson's dismissal."
Sulick, Michael J. "As the USSR Collapsed: A CIA Officer in Lithuania." Studies in Intelligence 50, no. 2 (2006): 1-11.
The author is the former ADDO and Chief/SE/DO. As the Soviet Union began to implode and the communist governments in Eastern Europe began to fall, Milt Bearden, Chief of the CIA's Soviet and East European Division (SE), "moved quickly to forge relationships with these former Soviet Bloc adversaries.... As the bastion of communism was about to fall in Moscow, Bearden was eager to continue engaging old enemies -- and potential new friends -- only this time on what had been Soviet territory.... [I]n the last week of August 1991, just a week after the failure of the coup attempt in Moscow, I embarked on one of the most thrilling and rewarding trips of my CIA career."

Laurie, Studies 57.4 (Dec. 2013), says "these two volumes provide a wonderful survey of the history of spying as practiced by the United States, penned by an engaging author who knows of what he writes." They "are very readable books that are highly recommended for every intelligence officer and student of intelligence studies."

2. American Spies: Espionage against the United States from the Cold War to the Present. Washington, DC: Georgetown University Press, 2013.
Brooks, Proceedings 140.4 (Apr. 2014): "In addition to being an interesting, well-researched, and well-written book, American Spies is a thought-provoking -- and, in places, rather disturbing -- analysis of the security and counterintelligence problems the United States faces today and in the future" For Goulden, Washington Times, 26 Nov. 2013, and Intelligencer 20.2 (Fall-Winter 2013), although it is "scholarly," this book "brims with details of spying that make for enjoyable reading."

According to RJB, Surveillant 1.6/2.6, the author, whose father was a high-ranking official and an intimate of Saddam Hussein, claims to have worked with Mossad in Europe and later with the Iraqis. "Despite an occasional tendency toward glib generalization, this would seem to be a powerful and informative book; its many plausible, but unsupported, assertions should be carefully evaluated."
Ashton, I&NS 9.4, sees Sumaida as "more concerned to vindicate his own actions than to dwell in any detail on intelligence structures and methods.... [Some] sections seem to have been sensationalized ... [and] his evidence is little more than hearsay." It would be "difficult to show" that his "claims could be relied on." Karl, WIR 15.2, says that "there is something not quite right in th[is] story." There is no way "to confirm or verify [Sumaida's] stories regarding his frequent encounters with the Mukhabarat, the CIA, or Canadian intelligence officials." There is also some "questions about who actually wrote this book, and when and why it was written.

Summers, Anthony. Official and Confidential: The Secret Life of J. Edgar Hoover. New York: Putnam, 1993.
Ambrose, WPNWE, 1-7 March 1993: "Drawing on anonymous and hostile sources,... and relying heavily on innuendo, rumor, hearsay, and his own speculations,... Summers depicts FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover as a moral and political monster without a single redeeming feature.... Much of the material here is familiar, already covered in detail in Richard Gid Powers's 1978 biography.... But the two biographers are often in disagreement. Powers dismisses as 'preposterous' the charge that Hoover was responsible for the intelligence failure at Pearl Harbor; Summers devotes an entire chapter to it. In general, in my opinion, in areas of disagreement Powers's work is better researched and more reliable than Summers's. Except, perhaps, on the biggest disagreement of all...: the sex life of J. Edgar Hoover. Powers found no convincing evidence to prove the widely held belief that Hoover was a homosexual; Summers presents an abundance of evidence to show that he was.... Summers's most sensational charge is that Hoover was a transvestite. His source is Susan Rosenstiel."
Surveillant 3.1 notes that the "fact that Hoover created a smooth law enforcement machine out of a corrupt outfit is left briefly examined in this hostile exposé." The author "has included many half-baked innuendos, gossipy twiddle-twattle, and [every] third-hand smear he could find." Summers claims that "Dusko Popov ... had been sent to warn America that the Japanese were planning to attack the [Pearl Harbor] naval base.... [G]etting someone to give you a quote about a rumour does not make it true."
According to Wannall, Periscope 18.3, Hoover's "vilification rested upon..., principally, a British author [Summers] whose allegations against a previous American public servant (AFIO founder David Atlee Phillips), repeated in a London newspaper, resulted in open-court retraction, apology, and acknowledgement of the payment of a substantial sum in damages." O'Reilly, Policy Studies Journal 21.3, comments that the stories of cross-dressing "may be true, but the 'he said/she said' sources don't prove it." NameBase identifies the author thusly: "Anthony Summers, based in Ireland and best known for his JFK assassination research...." [Enuf' said.]

Summers, Harry G., Jr. The Vietnam War Almanac. New York: Facts on File, 1985. Novato, CA: Presidio, 1999.
Grefrath, Library Journal (1986) (via Amazon.com), says that this work features "an extensive 'A-Z' encyclopedia on Vietnam, including biographical entries, military terms, geographical locations," and indovidual topics. "Summers presents careful research and well-documented analysis, but he does write from the career soldier's point of view.... It is the military individual's perspective that makes this almanac so valuable; Summers is a brilliant strategic analyst. Highly recommended."
