About the Author

Jefferson Adams is professor of European history at Sarah Lawrence College. His publications include Beyond the Wall: Memoirs of an East and West German Spy (ed., 1992) and Historical Dictionary of German Intelligence (2009). He is also the senior editor of The International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence.


"A meticulous scholar, Jefferson Adams has written a detailed but fast-paced account of the evolution of strategic intelligence from the end of World War II to the collapse of the Soviet Union and its aftermath. Although the book covers a wide spectrum of issues and deals with a long list of countries, Adams is such a fine writer that he retains the undivided attention of the reader. He is a leader in the field of intelligence studies."

Igor Lukes, Boston University

"Strategic Intelligence in the Cold War and Beyond is a valuable contribution to the intelligence literature."
Hayden Peake in Studies in Intelligence

"It avoids inundating the student-reader with the trappings of an over-researched monograph and provides the professor's 'take' on many Cold War events. . . . The book would make a fine supplemental reading in a course offering in-depth coverage of the Cold War but lacking the linkage to intelligence."
J. Ransom Clark, International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence

"All in all this easily read volume provides a substantive introduction. Even someone well acquainted with the subject is occasionally surprised."
Armin Wagner, Sehepunkte
