2. Intelligence Organizations

Richelson, Jeffrey T. The U.S. Intelligence Community, Second Edition (Cambridge, MA: Ballinger Publishing Company, 1989)

Comment: A virtual intelligence order of battle, this book covers the spectrum of military and civilian intelligence organizations. The detail, while dry at times, is well documented and covers all major points of interest. It is a good primer to learn how intelligence requirements are handled in the intelligence community. It also outlines areas of responsibility which can be very helpful, especially in fashioning requests for information. Although some of the information is dated, the book is still the best overview available.

Breckinridge, Scott D. The CIA and the U.S. Intelligence System, (Boulder and London: Westview Press, 1986)

Comment: Breckinridge brings 26 years of experience with the CIA to this publication. During that time he served both overseas and in Washington, and was the CIA's White House briefing officer for three years. Breckinridge served for 16 years with the Inspector General's Office and was twice awarded the Distinguished Intelligence Medal. His book delineates the U.S. intelligence community's responsibilities with particular concentration on the CIA as a key player. It describes how the various agencies interact and discuses the operation of intelligence agencies pursuant to the Constitution and laws of the United States.
