"The Nuclear Spies makes a significant contribution to intelligence studies by filling a gap in the literature: the importance of individual and institutional threat perceptions and cultural preconceptions when it comes to the development of strategic policy." -- Genevieve Lester, US Army War College, author of When Should State Secrets Stay Secret?
"Vince Houghton is exceptionally well-versed in the history of the intelligence challenges. The Nuclear Spies is an illuminating and valuable book describing the terrifying dawn, at the turn from World War II to the Cold War, of scientific intelligence." -- Richard Immerman, Temple University, author of The Hidden Hand
"The Nuclear Spies is a valuable contribution to the history of science and, in particular, the emergence of scientific intelligence as a national security tool. It delineates the successes and failures of American intelligence organizations during and after WWII, and is critical for our current and future scientific intelligence programs." -- John C. Browne, Los Alamos National Laboratory
"The Nuclear Spies deftly navigates the decisions made, for better or worse, by World War II-era American intelligence agencies. This book [adds to our] understanding of scientific intelligence as a tool for national security." -- Valerie Plame, former covert CIA Operations Office
