Studies in Intelligence is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal on intelligence that is published by the Center for the Study of Intelligence, a group within the United States Central Intelligence Agency. It contains both classified and unclassified articles on the methodology and history of the field of intelligence gathering.
The journal was established by Sherman Kent in 1955. According to Kent, intelligence "has developed a recognized methodology; it has developed a vocabulary; it has developed a body of theory and doctrine; it has elaborate and refined techniques. It now has a large professional following. What it lacks is a literature.... The most important service that such a literature performs is the permanent recording of our new ideas and experiences." In this special issue are the following articles: The Need for an Intelligence Literature by Sherman Kent; William J. Donovan and the National Security by Allen Dulles; The Defections of Dr. John by Delmege Trimble; On the Soviet Nuclear Scent by Henry Lowenhaupt; Soviet Deception in the Czechoslovak Crisis by Cynthia Grabo; The Holocaust Revisited: A Retrospective Analysis of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Extermination Complex by Dino Brugioni and Robert Poirier; An Interview with Richard Helms by David Frost; A Stone for Willy Fisher by Richard Friedman; The San Cristobal Trapezoid by John Hughes and Denis Clift, and A First Tour Like No Other by William Daugherty. Condition: Very good.
