AN ARMY OF CORPSES HAS BEEN SUMMONED br br In the centuries following the collapse of the Great Empire what remained of the Middle Kingdom was overrun by ruthless warlords and mercenary armies But from afar the Order of Magicians and Wizards watched over the delicate balance between the empires of the North and South Then the unspeakable happened the renegade Vladur banished by the Order for practicing the black art of necromancy allied himself with the Norht and threatened to engulf the world in chaos From their mountain fortress the Order dispatched their youngest most talented wizard CRISPAN MAGICKER br br Child prodigy consummate conjurer Master of the Five Arts who crosses the arid and deadly Karsh to rescue the besieged city of Zifkar and who learns to use his powers to kill But nothing can prepare him for the horror of the final confrontation Alone at the head of the Southern Armies he faces his former mentor the black magician Vladur and his army of the dead, No major twentieth century power has so short a history of national intelligence agencies or activities as does the United States and few have been as public or as tumultuous A major debate has now opened over the future structure size and role of U S intelligence in the aftermath of the cold war This unique and fully updated book is a history of the U S intelligence community as well as a detailed description of the organization and function of the major components of the community as they existed at the beginning of A welcome and timely update of one of the most concise and objective guides to the history and structure of U S intelligence Representative Dave McCurdy Chairman Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence U S House of Representatives br br The history of the intelligence community can be divided into three distinct periods From its creation in until the revelations and investigations of the intelligence community operated under fairly broad grants of authority based on trust After the Nixon administration a previously dormant Congress was galvanized to write new oversight provisions and also took on a greater role as a shaper and consumer of intelligence With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the cold war in the intelligence community found its role and even its necessity questioned due to the sudden absence of its major target Lowenthal emphasizes that a competent and challenged intelligence capability is an essential part of the U S national security structure despite the status of external events or threats The major requirement of this structure he says is providing timely objective and pointed analysis to policymakers across a wide range of issues, Of all the classical Olympian gods only the death of Pan was announced according to Plutarch This book is Pan s reminiscence as he realizes that he has lost his immortality that he is the last of the Olympian gods Pan recalls his life his many loves his role in the Battle of Marathon the rivalries of the Olympian gods proud Zeus jealous Hera and Pan s rival Apollo The book is an evocation of ancient Greece and a meditation on the coming end of one s life Although a lesser god Pan half man and half goat realizes that he is the last of his breed and the only link between the fading classical age and an unfolding new one, Intelligence is by definition a shadowy business Yet many aspects of this secret world are now more openly analyzed and discussed a trend which has inevitably prompted lively debate about intelligence gathering and analysis what should be allowed What boundaries if any should be drawn And what changes and challenges lie ahead for intelligence activities and agencies br br In this compelling book leading intelligence scholar Mark Lowenthal explores the future of intelligence There are he argues three broad areas information technology and intelligence collection analysis and governance that indicate the potential for rather dramatic change in the world of intelligence But whether these important vectors for change will improve how intelligence works or make it more difficult remains to be seen The only certainty is that intelligence will remain an essential feature of statecraft in our increasingly dangerous world br br Drawing on the author s forty years experience in U S intelligence i The Future of Intelligence i offers a broad and authoritative starting point for the ongoing debate about what intelligence could be and how it may function in the years ahead
