After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, which targeted the heart of financial and military power in the United States, Canada once again proved its credentials as a key American ally. With the imminent end of its combat role in Afghanistan, however, it is time to take stock of how Canada has adapted to the exigencies of the post-9/11 world and to consider the future directions for its foreign, defence, and security policies. This timely exploration and re-assessment of Canada's approach to strategic affairs offers a diverse set of nuanced, sometimes controversial, and always insightful perspectives on the most pressing security challenges that Canada currently faces. Bringing together noted experts on these issues – including a Canadian Senator, a past Minister of National Defence, former high-level military officers, and top scholars - this collection provides powerful ideas and guidance for the difficult task of formulating an overarching national security strategy.

In 2006, a Russian secret service spy was expelled from Canada. In 2007, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) revealed that China was implicated in as many as half of the ongoing counter-espionage dossiers in Canada, with 1,500 spies operating here. Allegedly, there are at least 15 countries involved in covert operations within our borders, many of them "friendly" nations such as France and Israel, but all representing a serious risk to Canadian security and economic interests. Industrial espionage has already cost our nation thousands of jobs and billions of dollars. Ultimately, the responsibility to protect our country's intellectual assets remains with businesses themselves, but are they prepared to face the daunting task of working against a very organized and professional foe? Nest of Spies provides some answers and describes ways that businesses can defend themselves.

Revised and updated in the light of the KGBÕs enduring presence in Russian politics, Spymaster is KaluginÕs impressively illuminating memoir of the final years of the Soviet Union.

A unique, unprecedented look at the inner workings of our domestic secret service by a leading investigative reporter. An alarming portrait of incompetence -- and worse -- inside the agency that is supposed to protect us from terrorism. Canada’s espionage agency enjoys operating deep in the shadows. Set up as a civilian force in the early eighties after the RCMP spy service was abolished for criminal excesses, no news is good news for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS). This country’s spymasters work diligently to prevent journalists, politicians and watchdog agencies from prying into their secret world. Few journalists have come close to rivalling Andrew Mitrovica at unveiling the stories CSIS does not want told. In Covert Entry, the award-winning investigative reporter uncovers a disturbing pattern of corruption, law-breaking and incompetence deep inside the service, and provides readers with a troubling window on its daily operations. At its core, Covert Entry traces the eventful career of a veteran undercover operative who worked on some of the service’s most sensitive cases and was ordered to break the law by senior CSIS officers, in the name of national security. Like Philip Agee’s Inside the Company: CIA Diary, Mitrovica’s book delivers a ground-level, day-to-day look at who is actually running the show in clandestine operations inside Canada. The picture he paints does not fill one with confidence and definitively shatters the myth that CSIS respects the rights and liberties it is charged with protecting. From the Hardcover edition.
