A virtual event featuring past co-director of Stanford’s Center for International Security and Cooperation, Amy B. Zegart, on her latest book, SPIES, LIES, AND ALGORITHMS
The History and Future of American Intelligence.
Spies, Lies, and Algorithms: The History and Future of American Intelligence (Princeton University Press; February 1, 2022) is the first comprehensive book on the past, present, and future of American intelligence—and outlines what’s urgently needed to protect our nation today.
The book draws on over thirty years of research (including new research just for this book) and hundreds of interviews with current and former intelligence officials. Weak intelligence makes us more vulnerable to attacks on our power grids, water supply, elections, corporate network servers, and nuclear weapons. Helping the American public better understand these evolving threats is crucial.
The book also includes an intelligence basics primer, a history of American espionage from the 18th century to today, an explainer on why intelligence analysis is so challenging, a discussion about turncoats and double agents, and many revealing “day in the life” stories from intelligence officials.
Attendees can purchase the book here for 30% off using the code ZIEGT in the space that says 'Discount/Add Coupon' before May 31, 2022.
