Spying, the "world's second oldest profession," is hardly limited
to the traditional great power countries. Intelligence Elsewhere,
nevertheless, is the first scholarly volume to deal exclusively
with the comparative study of national intelligence outside of the
anglosphere and European mainstream. Past studies of intelligence
and counterintelligence have tended to focus on countries such as
the United States, Great Britain, and Russia, as well as, to a
lesser extent, Canada, Australia, France, and Germany. This volume
examines 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. The authors then delve into modern intelligence
practice in countries with organizations significantly different
from the mainstream: Iran, Pakistan, Japan, Finland, Sweden,
Indonesia, Argentina, and Ghana. With contributions by leading
intelligence experts for each country, the chapters give the reader
important insights into intelligence culture, current practice, and
security sector reform. As the world morphs into an increasingly
multi-polar system, it is more important than ever to understand
the national intelligence systems of rising powers and regional
powers that differ significantly from those of the US, its NATO
allies, and its traditional opponents. This fascinating book shines
new light into intelligence practices in regions that, until now,
have eluded our understanding.
