Chapter 2. SELECTIVE BIBLIOGRAPHIES
As a result of the interest in intelligence stimulated by World War II, three bibliographies on intelligence and espionage were prepared by U.S. agencies. A fourth bibliography was authored by Joseph S. Galland. All suffer from being out of date. Additionally, the majority of the items in the three government bibliographies are mainly personal memoirs by individual espionage or counterespionage agents, and illustrate the limitations for serious study of all such works.
