I am excited to learn that this book costs 85 dollars, when I got it for free from work! It is interesting, because normally US government publications are free or only the cost of printing; even when a secondary publisher is involved.

This publication is an official document from DIA; do not expect any astounding revelations, scandalous accusations, or hard analysis. This is first and foremost an advertisement for the agency - ironically an internal one not meant for the outside world (thus the limited availability and high cost, presumably). Nonetheless, it maybe the best work of its type (given the few publications about DIA).

DIA is a gigantic, complicated organization that has evolved considerably since its creation shortly after the Cold War began. It's activities are diverse, from all-source analysis to missile and biological warfare analysis. CIA gets all of the credit and coverage, but DIA makes some significant contributions to daily military and diplomatic work. The primarily difference between the two, up until the intelligence reorganization that is still taking place, that DIA was under the command of the Secretary of Defense and CJCS, while CIA had no cabinet minister to control it.

The key aspect is that while CIA may be involved in large numbers of covert operations, most of the covert operations in DOD are carried out by uniformed military personnel in the theater commands or through SOCOM.

Nonetheless, as the Iraqi WMD intelligence analysis and insurgent analyses showed, DIA contributes significantly to the formulation of diplomatic and military policy.

This document is a good resource for those who are seriously involved in understanding the US intelligence community, but who may not have worked there. It should certainly be added to academic library collections.

I will be the first to admit, my interests in this book are not aligned with the intended audience. Despite that fact, I do not see how this book would be of use to anybody not planning on entering a trivia contest about the DIA.
After receiving the book, I immediately turned to the sections on Human Intelligence and National Intelligence Support Teams. I found nothing useful. Instead of information on examples of operations, current structure, or relation to the rest of the armed forces and intelligence community, I found information regarding the budgetary constraints of 1994 that lead to a bureaucratic reshuffle.
In hopes of finding useful information, I proceeded to slog through the text. Scanlon spends far more time detailing the resumes of incoming Directors of the DIA than the agency's operations. Analysis about the role of the DIA is almost entirely absent. Most What remains consists of the permutations of the line: "Once again, DIA lived up to its motto of "Committed to Excellence in Defense of the Nation."" Perhaps one benefit of the book is that after suffering through its 300+ large text pages, the reader will be forced into familiarity with the plethora of acronyms surrounding the DIA, much in the same way an prisoner may be forced to become familiar with his cellmate. Also, accidental humor can be found in misplaced phrases or byzantine photos and ideas about technology. Who knew our age was called the "Post-Cold war-techno-info era"?
Considering the entire dearth about information on the DIA, this book does provide at least a better outline than Wikipedia or the agency's own website. However, any real information about the recent history of the agency remains unreported, a gap we can only hope will be filled by Still Broken, or another book.

On 1 Oct. 2001, the DIA commemorated its 40th Anniversary. This history of the DIA starts with DIA in crisis response with the 1998 embassy bombings, moves to the Cuban Missile Crisis, reviews the Cold War, discusses Desert Storm & the current situation in the Balkans, & concludes with the recent EP-3 China incident. The volume records some of DIA's successes over the years. Traces DIA's history, first at Arlington Hall Station as the DoD's one source of strategic defense analysis, & ends with a thorough discussion of DIA as the combat support agency it is today -- a force multiplier supporting combatant commanders facing real world crises. Gives special attention to DIA's evolving technology, its facilities, & methods of operation. Color photos.
