Articles Books and Other Resources
While hardly the definitive library on surveillance and surveilance
countermeasures, the articles books and reports listed below should give
the reader greater insight into both surveillance and surveillance counermeasures.
Most of the materials listed are TSCM specific, but a command of telecommunications,
radio theory and other technical fields is important for understanding
what goes on in TSCM. There are other excellent references on the web,
though some authors are shy of public attention and asked that their materials
not be listed. They can be tracked down through a websearch or through
Granite Island Group's list of recomeded TSCM companies.
