From a Wall Street Journal Bookshelf column by Harvey Klehr about the book by Amy B. Zegart titled “Spies, Lies, and Algorithms: The History and Future of American Intelligence”:

In “Spies, Lies, and Algorithms,” Amy Zegart, a Stanford professor of political science and an occasional consultant to intelligence agencies, has provided a lucid and sobering account of how digital and other technological breakthroughs are “generating new uncertainties and empowering new adversaries” for the United States at a time when its intelligence agencies are uniquely stressed.
