Out now from Oxford University Press, Global Intelligence Oversight: Governing Security in the Twenty-First Century is a look at the ways that nations around the world supervise their spies. The product of a partnership between NYU School of Law and the Wilson Center, this volume offers case studies that stretch from Israel to Australia, alongside essays on key emerging topics in intelligence, including the rise of powerful, privacy-minded technology companies.
