Michael S. Goodman is Reader in Intelligence and International Affairs in the Department of War Studies, King's College London. He is the author or editor of five previous books, including the Routledge Companion to Intelligence Studies (co-editor, 2013).
'Michael Goodman's The Official History of the Joint Intelligence Committee: Volume I (Routledge) should help make up for the neglect in spy literature of the JIC. The alpha and omega of intelligence bureaucracy, it influences what spies spy on and interprets their reports for policymakers. Well written and wisely judged, this first volume takes us through the second world war to Suez.' --Alan Judd, Spectator 'Books of the Year'
