9780810855816: Historical Dictionary of Israeli Intelligence (Historical Dictionaries of Intelligence and Counterintelligence)

For Israel―more so than for any other state―an effective Intelligence Community has been a matter of life and death. Over the past half-century or so, Israel has created and refined what is broadly regarded as one of the best intelligence networks in the world. It has repeatedly undone efforts by hostile Arab neighbors to defeat it in war, foiled countless terrorist attacks, contributed to military preparedness and armament production, and helped millions of Jews to reach the Promised Land. Unfortunately, it has also committed some terrible mistakes and made blunders it can ill afford.

With all of this activity, it is no wonder so much has been written about Israeli Intelligence. However, a handy reference work bringing the various strands together has been sorely needed yet unavailable, until now. The Historical Dictionary of Israeli Intelligence provides detailed information on the various agencies, operations, important leaders and operatives, and special aspects of tradecraft through a chronology, an introduction, a dictionary full of cross-referenced entries, and a bibliography suggesting further reading.

About the Author:

Ephraim Kahana is professor of international relations and faculty member at Western Galilee College, Acre, Israel, where he chaired the Department of Political Science from 1997 to 1998. He also teaches international relations, national security, and intelligence studies in the National Security Program of the University of Haifa and the Technion―Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa. Dr. Kahana has written numerous papers and articles and organized panels and conferences on these subjects.

Review:

Gracefully written, well balanced, and frank―recalling the failures as well as the accomplishments of Israeli intelligence―the book is both authoritative and engaging on a wide range of topics. Recommended for any serious scholar or library concerned with the Middle East. (Dr. Walter C. Clemens Jr., Boston University and Harvard University)

The 424-page Dictionary provides an introduction to Israeli intelligence, along with entries on significant persons, operations, and key historical episodes....includes a fine bibliography... (Secrecy News)

Overall this is a valuable reference book. (Studies In Intelligence, Vol. 50, No. 4 (2006))

This is the first comprehensive account of the entirety of the Israeli intelligence community....This is a significant book in an important series. It is highly recommended for any academic and most large public libraries. (American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007))

Professor Kahana has done an exemplary job of illuminating the complex history of the multi-faceted Israel Intelligence Community. His work will be an essential item in any reference library. (Dr. Michael Andregg, Professor of Justice and Peace Studies, University of St. Thomas)

Kahana (U. of Haifa, Israel) "aims to portray the entire Israeli intelligence community, its organizations and directors, its successes and its failures," in cross-referenced dictionary entries describing prominent personalities ranging from directors of the Mossad to Mordechai Vanunu, the dissident kidnapped from Rome and jailed for treason for revealing Israel's nuclear weapons program; numerous operations; and conceptual topics such as media-intelligence relations. (Reference and Research Book News, August 2006)

Valuable reference book. (Association Of Former Intelligence Officers)
