In the Cold War battle for hearts and minds Britain was the first country to formulate a coordinated global response to communist propaganda. In January 1948, the British government launched a new propaganda policy designed to 'oppose the inroads of communism' by taking the offensive against it.' A small section in the Foreign Office, the innocuously titled Information Research Department (IRD), was established to collate information on communist policy, tactics and propaganda, and coordinate the discreet dissemination of counter-propaganda to opinion formers at home and abroad.

We have seen the publication of several authoritative and popular histories of British intelligence over the past few years. Written by journalists and academics, these have tapped into a public fascination with the world of secrets and spies and revealed many aspects of Britain's secret past. Three of Britain's key intelligence agencies, MI5, SIS, and GCHQ have been written about in both an official and unofficial capacity, and a lengthy study of the senioranalysis body, the Joint Intelligence Committee, is currently being written. Defence Intelligence and the Cold War both complements and adds to this body of work by examining a hitherto under-studiedorganisation, the Joint Intelligence Bureau. It studies this organisation and the largely unknown world of military and economic intelligence after 1945, and how this intelligence influenced British policies throughout the 1950s into the 1960s. During this period Britain faced a threat unlike any previously encountered, nuclear war, and the Bureau was central to British intelligence in this context. It supplied intelligence on the Soviet Strategic threat, for nuclear targeting, and economicwar. In short, just like SIS, MI5, and GCHQ it was a vital cog in the machinery.

Intelligence was a central element of the Cold War and the need for it was expected to diminish after the USSR's collapse, yet in recent years it has been in greater demand than ever. The atrocities of 11 September and the subsequent "war on terrorism" now call for an even more intensive effort. Important questions arise on how intelligence fits into the world of increased threats, globalization and expanded international action. This volume contains the recent work on this subject by Michael Herman, British intelligence professional for 35 years and Oxford University academic. It compares intelligence with other government information services, and discusses the British intelligence system and the case for its reform. It also addresses the ethical issues raised by intelligence's methods and results: "do they on balance make for a better world or a worse one?". Other chapters explore a wide range of intelligence topics past and present, including the transatlantic relationship, the alliance strategies of Norway and New Zealand, Mrs Thatcher's "de-unionization" of British Sigint, and personal memories of the British Cabinet Office in the 1970s. Michael Herman argues for intelligence professionalism as a contribution to international security and for its encouragement as a world standard. The modern challenge is for intelligence to support international cooperation in ways originally developed to advance national interests, while at the same time developing some restraint and international "rules of the game", in the use of intrusive and covert methods on its traditional targets. The effects of 11 September on this challenge are discussed in a thoughtful afterword.
