Understanding the Globalization of Intelligence by Adam D. M. Svendsen

Understanding the Globalization of Intelligence


Understanding the Globalization of Intelligence by Adam D. M. Svendsen

In this concise introduction to the complexities of contemporary western intelligence and its dynamics during an era of globalization, Adam Svendsen discusses intelligence cooperation in the early 21st century, with a sharp focus on counter-terrorism and WMD counter-proliferation during the 'War on Terror.'


Svendsen has presented readers with a provocative and challenging work that takes time to

digest. There is much to be gained from taking that time.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.
