Intelligence and Intelligence Analysis
Willan – 2011 – 332 pages
This book tracks post 9/11 developments in national security and policing intelligence and their relevance to new emerging areas of intelligence practice such as: corrections, biosecurity, private industry and regulatory environments. Developments are explored thematically across three broad sections:
Issues explored include: understanding intelligence models; the strategic management challenges of intelligence; intelligence capacity building; and the ethical dimensions of intelligence practice. Using case studies collected from wide-ranging interviews with leaders, managers and intelligence practitioners from a range of practice areas in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and US, the book indentifies examples of good practice across countries and agencies that may be relevant to other settings.
Uniquely bringing together significant theoretical and practical developments in a sample of traditional and emerging areas of intelligence, this book provides readers with a more holistic and inter-disciplinary perspective on the evolving intelligence field across several different practice contexts.
Intelligence and Intelligence Analysis will be relevant to a broad audience including intelligence practitioners and managers working across all fields of intelligence (national security, policing, private industry and emerging areas) as well as students taking courses in policing and intelligence analysis.
'It has been almost a decade since the 9/11 attacks – but we still struggle to conceptualize intelligence in a broader context beyond the traditional foreign policy arena and to find ways to move easily between foreign and domestic intelligence issues. Patrick Walsh, in Intelligence and Intelligence Analysis, offers that broader context, not only by examining a range of both foreign and domestic intelligence issues, but by focusing across the "Five Eyes" intelligence enterprises: the U.S., Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. This is a unique and long-needed approach; Walsh has made a real contribution to the intelligence canon.' – Mark M. Lowenthal, President and CEO, The Intelligence and Security Academy
'This is a thought-provoking and comparative analysis. Discussing intelligence structures and processes both in the national security domain and beyond, it develops a research strategy for more effective and resourced intelligence that will be of much interest to practitioners and researchers alike.' – Professor Peter Gill, Liverpool University
