Center, S. K. (n.d.). Welcome to the Inaugural Issue of the Kent Center Occasional Papers. Retrieved from

Excerpt: September 2002; Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Kent Center Occasional Papers. This new, periodic publication is intended to help the Kent Center fulfill its mission of promoting the practice of analytic tradecraft in the Directorate of Intelligence, and of furthering a greater understanding of intelligence analysis in the wider communities in which it is practiced, studied, or taught. Toward the latter end, unclassified Occasional Papers will be disseminated externally, as appropriate, in addition to being used in courses at the Sherman Kent School, CIA University, and elsewhere in the Intelligence Community. It is fitting that Occasional Paper Number 1 has been produced by Jack Davis, a Research Fellow at the Kent Center, whose long association with the DI?as analyst, manager, course director, and researcher on analytic tradecraft?dates back to 1956. In the current environment of the war on terrorism and renewed attention to and, indeed, scrutiny of the role of intelligence analysis, it is perhaps also appropriate that this inaugural issue addresses the critical challenge of strategic warning by drawing practical lessons from past critiques. The Kent Center is confident that intelligence analysts now and in the future will benefit from the lessons and insights that contributors to Occasional Papers will provide. We trust you will enjoy this and subsequent issues, and that they will prove to be a valuable addition to the practical literature on intelligence analysis.
