A TRUTH CONCEALED. Brabant, 1473. A clandestine brotherhood hides a secret that could bring down the Catholic Church. Their chosen hiding place - the art of Hieronymus Bosch. A TERRIBLE CONSPIRACY. London, 2014. An excommunicated priest approaches both the Church and the art world, claiming to possess an artefact that will destroy their reputations. A TICKING CLOCK. This man, Nicholas Laverne, is poised to end over 500 years of silence and injustice. Yet, unknown to Nicholas, he has just summoned a killer intent on silencing him.

Does foreign denial and deception threaten the interests of contemporary democracies? Strategic denial and deception (D&D) has emerged as a little understood challenge to security in general, and the intelligence community in particular. To gain advantages, adversaries seek to deny critical information about their own activities and capabilities, and to decieve foreign governments. In recent years, Iraq, India, Somalia, Colombian criminal groups, and terrorists, for example, have all used D&D successfully against the United States. Denial and deception is a low cost, potentially high impact to level political, military, and economic playing fields, particularly against strong opponents.Concerns about the threat of denial and deception have waxed and waned since the end of World War II. Sometimes it shaped assessments about the former Soviet Union, for example. At other times, such as the end of the Cold War, such threats appear to fade into insignificance. This volume considers whether globalization, proliferating communication technologies, and the dissemination of vast amounts of information make effective foreign denial and deception more or less likely. Contributors also examine whether more information and data sources make policymakers better informed or simply create confusion.Drawing on lessons learned from historical experiences, the authors propose ways to minimize future challenges. Chapters include ""Elements of Strategic Denial and Deception,"" by Abram Shulsky; ""Conditions Making for Success and Failure of D&D,"" by Barton Whaley; ""Conditions Making for Success and Failure of D&D,"" by M.R.D. Foot; ""Conditions Making for Success and Failure of D&D,"" by J. Bowyer Bell; ""Arms Control,"" by Lynn M. Hansen; and ""Prescription: Detecting Deception-Practice, Practitioners, and Theory,"" by Barton Whaley and Jeffrey Busby.While there are previous books about celebrated D&D cases, from Troy to Pearl Harbor and D-Day, no work attempts to assess how these instruments o

New York Times bestselling author Norman Bogner returns with Deception featuring Dr. Elena Gould, a heroine for our times. A highly regarded cardiologist from Manhattan, a ski accident forces Elena to give up medicine. Widowed for a year, her life at loose ends, she, through her benevolence and love of children, adopts the young daughter of a prostitute, loving, raising, and educating the child who, surreptitiously doesn't return that affection. Carrie grows into a ruthless computer hacker and drug addict, hating her adopted mother. Hoping to rebalance her life, Elena goes to Europe to teach cardiology but secretly hoping to recapture the life she always wanted with her first love, Rafi, now a philosophy professor in London, but once her professor and lover at Cornell. The charismatic Rafi is not at all what she assumed. He is a Muslim, raised by a Jew, and for years hid his true intent and now heads a terrorist cell, intending to commit a massive attack in London. Knowing nothing of this, Elena falls in love again with Rafi, but she slowly discovers that the man she has loved all of her adult life is not at all what she imagined and only she can stop him. Can she?

"Questions focal to these studies are: why were certain subjects selected, why were they so attractive to represent and to look at, and which thoughts and associations did these visual delights evoke? To this purpose Sluijter examines the patterns of selection, and the way in which artists treated pictorial traditions and iconographic conventions in themes and motifs. The author offers striking insights into the meaning which these images had for the artist and his audience."--BOOK JACKET.
