Naval War College Review


Efraim Inbar


The essays in this collection were writ- ten for an international conference held in honor of the late Michael J. Handel at the U.S. Naval War College. Handel wrote several seminal pieces in the rela- tively new field of intelligence studies, and his colleagues are to be compli- mented for producing this impressive Festschrift. Betts and Mahnken put to- gether an impressive group of practitio- ners and academics to write on various aspects of the work of intelligence agencies. It begins with four articles of a theoretical nature, followed by three articles that focus on historic case studies.
