National Intelligence Press

NI Press

Since its founding in 1996 (originally as NDIC Press), NI Press has established itself as a major resource for the IC of intelligence information blended with academic insights. Our publications have become mainstays in IC classrooms and serve as indispensable tools for analysts, collectors, and others seeking new outlooks and better ways to accomplish the intelligence mission.

NI Press publishes the work of NIU faculty, research fellows, students, and IC professionals. The Press encourages its authors to introduce new perspectives on topics of critical interest to the IC and, more broadly, the U.S. Government. 

Books published by the NI Press undergo peer review by colleagues in the U.S. government, as well as from civilian academic, non-profit, or business communities. Authors of NI Press publications enjoy full academic freedom, provided they do not disclose classified information, jeopardize operations security, or misrepresent official U.S. policy. Such academic freedom empowers NI Press authors to offer new and sometimes controversial perspectives in the interest of furthering debate on key issues.  NI Press publications have been approved for unrestricted distribution by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s prepublication review. The views expressed in each publication are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of any U.S. Government agency.
