The events of 9/11 and subsequent war on terror have made intelligence more central to the study of government and international affairs than at any time previously, reviving old debates and generating new ones.But what exactly is intelligence?

Who seeks to develop it and how? What happens to the intelligence that is produced? This timely new book explores these and other key questions. Concentrating on the role of states and organizations, and using the post-9/11 security agenda as its key focus, it offers an authoritative and accessible guide to the relationship between intelligence and processes of public and private governance. Drawing on a range of contemporary examples, the book examines the limits of intelligence and asks whether the 9/11 attacks, the bombings in London and the failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq may be seen as intelligence failures?

It concludes by discussing the need for democratic control of intelligence to prevent its future abuse by unaccountable state or corporate agencies.
