AFIO's "Guide to the Study of Intelligence"

Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO). "Guide to the Study of Intelligence: A Project of AFIO's Academic Exchange Program (AEP)." Peter C. Oleson, Project Director. [http://www.afio.com/40_guide.htm]

"This Guide to the Study of Intelligence offers suggestions for instructors teaching various topics for which intelligence is an important component. The intent is to remove some of the veil that has made the secret history of intelligence opaque and obscured many of the complexities of the intelligence field. The target audience includes secondary school teachers of American History, Civics, or current events and undergraduate professors of History, Political Science, International Relations, and related topics, particularly those with no or limited professional experience in the field. The authors of the individual articles in The Guide try to identify the important learning points for students and the materials that an instructor can use to teach."
