b'Intelligence and Security Publications The inclusion of Intelligence and Security as subjects of academic curricula has increased exponentially in recent years, as evidenced by the list of academic institutions that offer courses in these subjects. Scholars trained in history, international studies, and political science examine such subjects as the influence of US and foreign intelligence on national decisions during the Cold War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm), the Second Gulf War (Operation Iraqi Freedom), the conflict in Afghanistan, as well as how espionage has impacted other major events around the world since the end of World War II. In the past, academic associations shied away from recognizing intelligence studies, but this is increasingly changing. The International Studies Association has had an intelligence studies section since 1985, and in 2008, the American Political Science Association agreed to form an intelligence studies group, thus enabling members to present panels at each years convention. The International Association for Intelligence Education (IAFIE)was formed in 2004 as a professional association for intelligence educators. It has instituted a certification effort for undergraduate intelligence programs, although this remains somewhat controversial in the eyes of some institutions. Only a handful of institutions have been certified to date. Some journals focusing on intelligence are AFIOs own Intelligencer, and the publication by CIAs Center for the Study of IntelligenceStudies in Intelligence. The increasing number of books and articles about intelligence pose a challenge to anyone new to the field. Because of popular myths fostered by novels, movies, and television, much has been written about the intelligence field that is inaccurate or sensationalized for purposes of sales. Many written by former intelligence officers are prescriptions for reform largely based on personal experiences. The sources described here are offered only as a point of departure for those interested in this subject. AFIOs Guide to the Study of Intelligence, published in October 2016,with a forewordby former SecretaryofDefense and Director of Central Intelligence Dr. Robert Gates, is a readable anthology that addresses many aspects of the intelligence field. The full 788-page book is available at no cost as a public service to professors, students, and the public, here: https://www.afio.com/publications/Guide/index.html?page=1or can be downloaded as a PDF here: https://tinyurl.com/pp3ydhj6. It provides guidance for instructors and those interested in intelligence on what literature is good and what is not on the various aspects of the many intelligence disciplines, espionage, counterintelligence, covert action, history, and foreign intelligence services. 41'
