This is a review by the Defense Intelligence School.
Originally an Institute for Defense Analyses report, this book provides one of the better analyses of the U.S. national security organization prior to the Nixon Administration. In discussing the decision-making process, foreign and domestic influences, intelligence and the roles of the White House, State Department, and Defense Department, the report conveys the flavor and dynamics of the national security process and permits the serious intelligence officer to analyze his role to determine how intelligence can better support the overall effort.
