Barton Whaley

Bart Whaley took his BA in Chinese Studies in 1951 from University of California, Berkeley. Then in the US Army Psychological Warfare Intelligence unit headquartered in Tokyo during the Korean War. He attended London University School of Oriental and African Studies on the GI Bill for four years, and in 1969 took his Doctorate in strategic deception analysis at MIT.

By following his intellectual curiosity in deception and counterdeception he took to the study of conjuring as a deception operation. He's a magician member of the Magic Castle in Los Angeles and the International Brotherhood of Magicians. He produced four prize-winning books and articles on magic, most notably The Encyclopedic Dictionary of Magic 1584-1988 and The Man Who Was Erdnase. In 2004 he hosted a workshop on magic and the military at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.

Dr. Whaley co-designed and managed, in the 1960s-80s, several senior and mid-level political-military and counter-terrorist simulations. He’s written Stratagem: Deception and Surprise in War, Codeword Barbarossa, Covert German Rearmament, 1919-1939, Cheating, (co-authored under the name "J. Barton Bowyer"). He's consulted for The RAND Corporation and MATHTECH; addressed an international conference on strategic issues at The Hebrew University, Jerusalem; and more. He currently writes monographs on the detection of deception for the Foreign Denial and Deception Committee (FDDC). His most notable recent work for the FDDC is Detecting Deception: A Bibliography of Counterdeception across Time, Cultures, and Disciplines.

Dr. Whaley was affiliated with the Department of Defense Analysis at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA and in that capacity was collaborating with Dr. Hy Rothstein on a textbook on military deception. He also produced monographs for the FDDC on how to detect deception and was working on his book The Maverick Detective; or, the Whole Art of Detection.

Dr. Whaley lived in Pacific Grove, California, with his wife Susan Aykroyd.

Practise to Deceive: Learning Curves of Military Deception Planners

Barton Whaley

Practise to Deceive: Learning Curves of Military Deception Planners by Barton WhaleySome cultures are clearly more deceptive than others but only during any given slice of time. No single culture has excelled in deceptiveness throughout its history. While the Chinese did rise to the highest level of military deviousness during the time of Sun Tzu (c.350 BC), they had low levels before Master Sun, and afterwards largely lost it during three long periods, only to regain it each time. The most recent Chinese loss was when they fell to the lowest level from the late 1700s until being conquered in 1948 by the stratagemic Chinese Communists (PLA). Thence the PLA has displayed high...

Who's Who In Magic

Barton Whaley

Who's Who In Magic by Barton WhaleyNew updated edition.

This biographical guide lists over 5,500 men and women associated with the art of conjuring from earliest recorded times to the present: performers, inventors, writers, teachers, dealers, manufacturers, publishers, collectors, historians, and showmen of magic. Several are included from the so-called allied arts of magic. Thus it gives those whose deceptions or careers directly influenced magicians, such as pseudo-psychics and card sharps; and those who share many deceptive methods with magicians, such as escapologists, mentalists, and stage pickpockets and hypnotists....

Orson Welles: The Man Who Was Magic

Barton Whaley

Orson Welles: The Man Who Was Magic by Barton WhaleyThis Orson Welles ebook is a case study of an individual that was able to think “out of the box”. Each small fact presented leads to the whole of a thinking process that will always provide an unexpected Third Option. The process that is presented here is the kernel of all deception theory. It's why Bart is called the “defining expert” of deception and counterdeception (the detection of deception) by the intelligence communities of many countries.

Not only does it personify the Whaley Deception Theory it presents the genius of Orson Welles through all his creative work, not just Citizen...
