New book examines ‘Reshaping of U.S. Intelligence’



University of Colorado Denver communication Assistant Professor Hamilton Bean’s No More Secrets: Open Source Information and the Reshaping of U.S. Intelligence (Praegar Security International) has been published with a foreword by former Sen. Gary Hart of the School of Public Affairs.

According to the publication, “Since 9/11, U.S. intelligence organizations have grappled with the expanded use of open-source information derived from unclassified material, including international newspapers, television, radio and websites. They have struggled as well with sharing this information with international and domestic law enforcement partners. The apparent conflict between openness and secrecy provides an opportunity to reconsider what constitutes intelligence and how citizens and their government interact in the interests of national security.”
