This work is a study of presidential use of covert action as a foreign policy tool during six presidential administrations from Kennedy through Reagan. It offers the reader brief accounts of covert operations undertaken by the American intelligence community during the critical period from 1961 to 1989; these accounts examine the evolving nature of the relationship between the American presidency and the burgeoning intelligence community during the middle to late Cold War era.
