An excellent, tightly written “learning module” designed for both students and the generaI public, similar in scope and content to an encyclopedia article. The second half of the article, “Strategic Intelligence as a Research Frontier,” incorporates the results of an interview survey made in 1971-72.

Designed as a “learning module” for students and laymen, this is easily the best brief general discussion of strategic intelligence available. Among the topics discussed are the nature of intelligence, its importance in decision making, process and organization, and strategic intelligence as a research frontier. The latter section is based on an extensive survey made in 1971-72 with the old of a grant from the Russell Sage Foundation.
