In a bold and penetrating study, Gregory Treverton, former Vice Chair of the National Intelligence Council and Senate investigator, offers his insider's views on how intelligence gathering and analysis must change. Treverton suggests why intelligence needs to be contrarian and attentive to the longer term. Believing that it is important to tap expertise outside government to solve intelligence problems, he argues that involving colleagues in the academy, think tanks, and Wall Street befits the changed role of government from doer to convener, mediator, and coalition-builder.

Reviews & endorsements
"This is a 'must-read' book for every senior official in American intelligence agencies and for their policy and congressional overseers. Provocative and replete with evaluations and recommendations that will be highly controversial among intelligence officers, Reshaping National Intelligence offers a comprehensive blueprint for restructuring U.S. intelligence for the post-cold war world, a restructuring the author persuasively argues is essential as tactical military requirements multiply, decision-makers are inundated with publicly available information of varying reliability, and traditional secret intelligence sources no longer shed light on many contemporary issues of importance." Robert M. Gates, Pacific Council on International Policy, Former Deputy Director of CIA --
