Intelligence in the National Security Enterprise

An Introduction

This textbook introduces students to the critical role of the US intelligence community within the wider national security decision-making and political process. Intelligence in the National Security Enterprise defines what intelligence is and what intelligence agencies do, but the emphasis is on showing how intelligence serves the policymaker. Roger Z. George draws on his thirty-year CIA career and more than a decade of teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate level to reveal the real world of intelligence. Intelligence support is examined from a variety of perspectives to include providing strategic intelligence, warning, daily tactical support to policy actions as well as covert action. The book includes useful features for students and instructors such as excerpts and links to primary-source documents, suggestions for further reading, and a glossary.

He had a thirty-year career as an analyst for the CIA, and he also served on the policy-planning staffs of the Department of State and Department of Defense. He is a coeditor of both Analyzing Intelligence and The National Security Enterprise.

Reviews

"Roger George has written a comprehensive and user-friendly guide to the US intelligence community, what it does, how it does it, and... how it connects to the larger... national security enterprise. The book is equally useful as a general overview to US intelligence-policy relations, a textbook for aspiring intelligence officers, and a general reference for national security scholars.... The book is a remarkable achievement." — Barry R. Posen, Ford International Professor of Political Science, Security Studies Program, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

"George's fine book reflects the ideal combination of expertise for introducing students to a complex subject: decades of personal experience at all levels in the US intelligence establishment and foreign policy arena, acute academic analysis, and refreshingly readable writing." — Richard K. Betts, Director of the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University



"An outstanding introduction to the US intelligence community.... Concerned citizens, students of foreign policy, and current or prospective intelligence analysts will find great value in this book." — Dan E. Caldwell, distinguished professor of political science, Pepperdine University

"A thorough, clear, and well-organized introduction to the roles and the issues of the American intelligence establishment. It is an excellent foundation that can help orient the uninitiated to... [a] vital part of American government." — Philip Zelikow, White Burkett Miller Professor of History and J. Wilson Newman Professor of Governance, University of Virginia
