Description


Intelligence Elsewhere is the first scholarly volume to deal exclusively with the comparative study of national intelligence outside of the Anglosphere and great-power European mainstream. Much of the existing literature on intelligence is heavily focused on the traditional intelligence powers of the ABCA (America-Britain-Canada-Australia) countries, with sidelines into the major European players: France, Germany, and of course Russia. This edited volume will take a different approach. First, it will start with the deep historical and cultural origins of intelligence in several countries of critical importance today: India, China, the Arab world, and indeed Russia, the latter examined from a fresh perspective. In the next section of the book, authors examine modern intelligence practice in countries with organizations significantly different from the mainstream: Iran, Pakistan, Japan, Finland, Sweden, Indonesia, Argentina, and Ghana. These chapters will deal with matters of intelligence history, current practice, and security sector reform.
