A substantial textbook on industrial espionage and counterespionage edited by the president of R .M. Greene & Associates, who is also an experienced management consultant from California. The authors of the thirteen chapters and two appendices provide detailed information on concepts, methods, values, and ethics, including useful material for courses of instruction in the field or for establishing a business intelligence unit in an industrial organization. The editor states that since roughly $113 million per year go into estimating the strengths of business competition in the United States, a company cannot afford to be without a formal business intelligence element. Excellent overall bibliography at the end of the book with specific bibliographic references after most chapters.
