Intelligence, Espionage and US Foreign Policy
Institutions like the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency play a pivotal role in implementing and shaping U.S. national security and foreign policy. Nonetheless, the fields of intelligence and espionage tend to be underrepresented in scholarship about United States relations with the rest of the world. This talk will examine the emergence of these fields in the foreign policy apparatus through the course of the twentieth century and assess the role of agencies such as the CIA and NSA in shaping the U.S. foreign relations.
