A Season of Inquiry: Congress and Intelligence by Loch K. Johnson
After reading about the Bay of Pigs and Vietnam I decided I wanted to learn more about the Church committee. Howard Jones recommended this book.
The author was on the staff of the committee and the books follows the progress of the committee from its inception, through its operation to its final conclusions from a very congressional perspective. I might have been interested in more of the wider context and consequences. However, I’ve never really known much about the workings of a congressional committee, and I found the revisiting of the congressman from the 70s such as Church, Mondale, etc… interesting.
Of course, in some ways it seems naive compared with the modern world. What would Senator Church have thought about drone attacks?
