This edition of the ';brief, yet subtle and penetrating account' of the CIA includes a new prologue covering the agency's more recent history (Christian Science Monitor).

Now in its third edition, Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones's comprehensive history of the Central Intelligence Agency is widely acclaimed for its thorough and even-handed analysis. A renowned U.S. intelligence expert, Jeffreys-Jones chronicles the evolution of the agency from its beginning in 1947 to the present day. With clarity and acuity, he examines the CIA's activities during some of the most dramatic episodes in American history, from McCarthyism to the Bay of Pigs, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Iran-Contra affair, and many others.

A new prologue by the author also covers the CIA's history from the end of the Cold War to the terror attacks of September 11th, 2001. A landmark of intelligence history since its first edition in 1989, The CIA and American Democracy is ';a judicious and reasonable...sophisticated study' (David P. Calleo,New York Times Book Review).
