ENJOY CHOICE INTELLIGENCE ANALYSIS RESOURCES TO YOUR HEART’S CONTENT

A list of intelligence analysis resources will hopefully prove to be of as great value to visitors of our website as it is to students on our courses.

To be precise, this site is more about education in the application of declassified structured analytic techniques to foreign affairs analysis and threat assessment, not your hard-core intelligence analysis.

But the gap between these two subdomains is not so big. And all of the resources we offer are 100% relevant also for non-vetted SAT learners and practitioners .

Structured analytic techniques is a young tradecraft. Still, it has already generated a significant volume of unclassified research and reviews. This world of wisdom is now at your fingertips.

To find some of the pearls from the list below we went to staggering depths – the abyss beyond Google’s page 150. We believe it is quite rare that people systematically go on such a deep delve. (And it is even rarer that they return.)

FIND INTELLIGENCE ANALYSIS RESOURCES THAT YOU NEED – AND SHARE YOUR OWN CATCH WITH US

Our current catch represents just a tiny fraction of the unclassified resources existing, which are truly renewable. All signs suggest that they will continue growing at an ever increasing rate. In response, we will continue trawling the nether depths of search engines and bringing new things up.

We will love it when authors send us their recent work or new articles in PDF and be honoured to host them and make available to both students and scholars of the analytic tradecraft.

We’ll be equally grateful to our visitors for bringing us their own catch.

We very much rely on the analytic community’s joining us to help improve access to its resource base.

The Big Bang triggered some two decades ago by the works of trail-blazers has created a universe of knowledge that is spreading at an ever-increasing rate.

The jinni has escaped from the lamp.
