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.

"Britain, Turkey and the Soviet Union, 1940-45 explores the role of Turkey in British strategy and diplomacy during the Second World War. Drawing on the latest archival releases, including those from the secret world of British intelligence, it offers the first comprehensive analysis of Anglo-Turkish relations during the period. It bridges a significant gap in the international history of the 1940s 'between world war and cold war', addressing Turkey's place in British strategy at three key stages in the war effort - in the Balkans in the winter of 1940-41, on the 'Northern Front' in 1941-42, and in the Eastern Mediterranean in 1943. Tamkin addresses Turkey's prominent role in British post-war planning from the summer of 1943, and demonstrates some of the emerging strategic dilemmas in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East, which dominated British foreign policy after 1945." --Book Jacket.

The goal of the Guide to the Study of Intelligence is to help instructors teach about the field of intelligence. This includes... undergraduate and graduate professors of History, Political Science, International Relations, Security Studies, and related topics, especially those with no or limited professional experience in the field. The assumption is that none of the... instructors is an expert in the topic of intelligence. Even those who are former practitioners are likely to have only a limited knowledge of the very broad field of intelligence, as most spend their careers in one or two agencies at most and may have focused only on collection or analysis of intelligence or support to those activities."In each of the articles the intent is to identify the important learning points for students and the materials that an instructor can use to teach. This includes books, articles, and websites..."
