This work evaluates the effectiveness of the world's major intelligence services by examining various aspects of their operations and organization. West, a prolific author of books on British intelligence (e.g., Molehunt , LJ 3/15/89), is an expert on this subject, and he provides some fascinating details on well-known incidents, as well as some not-so-public events. While mentioning an agency's strong points, he seems more interested in discussing its failures and weaknesses. Despite the recent political changes in the world, the "Great Game" goes on. While this is a well-written volume, it is in a field crowded with similar books. Recommended only for larger public libraries and subject collections.- Daniel K. Blewett, Loyola Univ. Lib., Chicago
