In Cases in Intelligence Analysis, accomplished instructors and intelligence practitioners Sarah Miller Beebe and Randolph H Pherson offer robust, class-tested cases studies of events in foreign intelligence, counterintelligence, terrorism, homeland security, law enforcement, and decision-making support. In this Second Edition, the authors added five new case studies. Designed to give analysts-in-training an opportunity to apply structured analytic techniques and tackle real-life problems, each turnkey case delivers a captivating narrative, discussion questions, recommended readings, and a series of engaging analytic exercises. The text is logically organized and richly illustrated; chapters begin with discussion questions, and a table of techniques precedes each set of exercises. Two hundred photos, maps, figures, tables, boxes, key terms and key takeaways, and technique templates support analysis and instruction.

•Five new cases are added to this edition: The Anthrax Killer, Cyber H20, Jousting with Cuba over Radio Marti, Understanding Revolutionary Organization 17 November, and Iranian Meddling in Bahrain.
•More than fifteen new exercises engage students in critical thought.
•Four new techniques are introduced: Quadrant Hypothesis Generation, Morphological Analysis, Getting Started Checklist, and What If? Analysis.
•Comprehensive and easy-to-use Instructor Materials include exercise solutions, teaching notes, and key takeaways for each case.
•Links to multimedia and other ancillaries that complement the case studies are included to encourage student mastery of material.
•Video of actual events, interviews, maps, still photos, and more help bring the content to life.
•An updated, annotated table of contents and a matrix of cases and techniques offer quick reference for students and instructors.

'This text really draws students in -- allowing them to go beyond merely reading and learning about intelligence to actually using techniques to analyze real-life intelligence cases. Students are engaged by the material, which works well for both on-campus and on-line courses.' - Mary Manjikian, Regent University

'The book is well-written and stimulating on a number of levels. It provides students with insights into the real-world issues confronting intelligence analysts as they attempt to make sense of often conflicting and complex data and information related to the cases.' - Jonathan Benjamin-Alvarado, University of Nebraska Omaha

'My students very much enjoyed using the case studies. They were real world, relevant and helped bring the theory of Structured Analytic Techniques (SATs) into practice. One of my students said he wished he'd known about SATs, "at the beginning of my college career" as he felt it helped him focus his thinking and decision making. I highly recommend it for faculty teaching about SATs and looking to improve critical thinking in general among their student population.' - CDR Toni Gay, U.S. Coast Guard Academy Intelligence Studies Director and Associate Professor 2009 to 2013
