Details

The headquarters of one of the world's most powerful and secretive intelligence services can be found just outside of Washington, D.C. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) serves a critical role in the shaping of American policies by providing foreign intelligence related to national security issues to the U.S. president and senior U.S. policymakers. The process of gathering and analyzing intelligence involves spies and satellites, foreign agents, and researchers. While the threats against the United States have changed since the CIA was founded in 1947, its mission remains the same: to provide the information that will keep Americans safe. This new title takes readers on a detailed journey through the historical corridors of the CIA. From the days of Wild Bill Donovan and the Office of Strategic Services to the war against terrorism, The Central Intelligence Agency introduces some of the CIA's key players and reveals how intelligence has been a critical component in America's foreign policy.
