dc.description.abstractThis work covers a period of American history stretching from the initial proposal for the creation of the American Central Intelligence Agency in 1944 to the conclusion of Jimmy Carter’s presidency in 1981, analyzing changing conceptions of secrecy within the federal government. By the period’s end, ideas regarding appropriate action had changed dramatically, and a new paradigm reached preeminence, characterized by cooperation between Congress, the CIA, and the White House.en_US
