The FBI : a history by Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fast-paced history of the FBI presents the first balanced and complete portrait of the vast, powerful, and sometimes bitterly criticized American institution. Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones, a well-known expert on U.S. intelligence agencies, tells the bureaus story in the context of American history. Along the way he challenges conventional understandings of that story and assesses the FBI's strengths and weaknesses as an institution." "Common wisdom traces the origin of the bureau to 1908, but Jeffreys-Jones locates its true beginnings in the 1870s, when Congress acted in response to the Ku Klux Klan campaign of terror against black American voters. The character and significance of the FBI derive from this original mission, the author contends, and he traces the evolution of the mission into the twenty-first century."--Jacket

In spies we trust : the story of Western intelligence by Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones( Book )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In spies we trust reveals the full story of the Anglo-American intelligence relationship - ranging from the deceits of World War I to the mendacities of 9/11 - for the first time. Why did we ever start trusting spies? It all started a hundred years ago. First we put our faith in them to help win wars, then we turned against the bloodshed and expense, and asked our spies instead to deliver peace and security. By the end of World War II, Britain and America were cooperating effectively to that end. At its peak in the 1940s and 1950s, the 'special intelligence relationship' contributed to national and international security in what was an Anglo-American century. But from the 1960s this 'special relationship' went into decline. Britain weakened, American attitudes changed, and the fall of the Soviet Union dissolved the fear that bound London and Washington together. A series of intelligence scandals along the way further eroded public confidence. Yet even in these years, the US offered its old intelligence partner a vital gift: congressional attempts to oversee the CIA in the 1970s encouraged subsequent moves towards more open government in Britain and beyond. So which way do we look now? And what are the alternatives to the British-American intelligence relationship that held sway in the West for so much of the twentieth century? Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones shows that there are a number--the most promising of which, astonishingly, remain largely unknown to the Anglophone world."--Publisher's website

8 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eternal vigilance? : 50 years of the CIA by Christopher M Andrew( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eternal Vigilance? seeks to offer reinterpretations of some of the major established themes in CIA history such as its origins, foundations, its treatment of the Soviet threat, the Iranian revolution and the accountability of the agency. The book also opens new areas of research such as foreign liaison, relations with the scientific community, use of scientific and technical research and economic intelligence. The articles are both by well-known scholars in the field and young researchers at the beginning of their academic careers. Contributors come almost equally from both sides of the Atlantic. All draw, to varying degrees, on recently declassified documents and newly-available archives and, as the final chapter seeks to show, all point the way to future research
North American spies : new revisionist essays by Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

North American Spies takes a fresh look at the history of espionage in the United States and Canada since 1898. A new generation of scholars and journalists use the latest verifiable evidence to tackle some of the most important, yet least known, events in recent history. They argue in particular that Soviet secret agents may have been behind the theft of secret Churchill-Roosevelt correspondence in 1940; that President Truman's shadowy advisor, Admiral Souers, was the real architect of the CIA; and that Britain generated a home-bred McCarthyism similar to that in the U.S. This book features the first history of the Defense Intelligence Agency, includes a chapter on American spy fiction, and concludes with a guide to further study. Contributors are Catherine B. Fletcher, Danny D. Jansen, Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones, Richard B. Laidlaw, Andrew Lownie, Graeme S. Mount, Patrick Mescall, Karen Potter, Robert E. Spears, Jr., and David Walker
American-British-Canadian intelligence relations, 1939-2000( Book )

This work considers, for the first time, the intelligence relationship between three important North Atlantic powers in the Twenty-first century, from WWII to post-Cold War. As demonstrated in the case studies in this volume, World War II cemented loose and often informal inter-allied agreements on security intelligence that had preceded it, and created new and important areas of close and formal co-operation in such areas as codebreaking and foreign intelligence

We know all about you. The story of surveillance in Britain and America by Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of surveillance in Britain and the United States, from the detective agencies of the late nineteenth century to 'wikileaks' and CIA whistle-blower Edward Snowden in the twenty-first. Written by prize-winning historian and intelligence expert Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones, it is the first full overview of its kind. Delving into the roles of credit agencies, private detectives, and phone-hacking journalists as well as agencies like the FBI and NSA in the USA and GCHQ and MI5 in the UK, Jeffreys-Jones highlights malpractices such as the blacklist and illegal electronic interceptions. He demonstrates that several presidents - Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon - conducted various forms of political surveillance, and also how British agencies have been under a constant cloud of suspicion for similar reasons. Continuing with an account of the 1970s' leaks that revealed how the FBI and CIA kept tabs on anti-Vietnam War protestors, he assesses the reform impulse of this era - an impulse that began in America and only gradually spread to Britain. 0The end of the Cold War further at the end of the 1980s then undermined confidence in the need for state surveillance still further, but it was to return with a vengeance after 9/11. What emerges is a story in which governments habitually abuse their surveillance powers once granted, demonstrating the need for proper controls in this area. But, as Jeffreys-Jones makes clear, this is not simply a story of the Orwellian state. While private sector firms have sometimes acted as a brake on surveillance by the state (particularly in the electronic era), they have also often engaged in dubious surveillance practices of their own. Oversight and regulation, he argues, therefore need to be universal and not simply concentrate on the threat to the individual posed by the agencies of government
