Curing Analytic Pathologies

Curing Analytic Pathologies

Front Material

The Center for the Study of Intelligence (CSI) was founded in 1974 in response to Director of Central Intelligence James Schlesinger’s desire to create within CIA an organization that could “think through the functions of intelligence and bring the best intellects available to bear on intelligence problems.” The Center, comprising professional historians and experienced practitioners, attempts to document lessons learned from past activities, explore the needs and expectations of intelligence consumers, and stimulate serious debate on current and future intelligence challenges.

In carrying out its mission, CSI publishes Studies in Intelligence, as well as books and monographs addressing historical, operational, doctrinal, and theoretical aspects of the intelligence profession. It also administers the CIA Museum and maintains the Agency’s Historical Intelligence Collection.

Other works recently published by CSI include:

Analytic Culture in the U.S. Intelligence Community, by Dr. Rob Johnston (2005)

Directors of Central Intelligence as Leaders of the U.S. Intelligence Community, 1946–2005 (2005)
