Just to balance it out, there's a book with a much more sympathetic view towards the CIA and spy agencies in general. While it wasn't a very good book, it still deserves a read to see another side of the CIA. When it was released, it did become a national bestseller, by the way. It may be a good primer to other books about the CIA.
First Litsy vacation post! Have been very busy traveling around and celebrating Christmas with my family, and honestly haven‘t gotten any reading done until today. Did some reading at the beach, but forgot to take a picture. The tagged book I read about 7 years ago staying at my uncle‘s condo on the Colombian coast. I think my older cousin had left it there a few years earlier. Very fascinating deep delve into the history of the CIA.
Eyyyy it's round 3 of the #augustphotochallenge ! Since I realized a huge chunk of my nonfiction *is* political books, here are two stacks of my favorite topics: Cold War spies (left) and the 1960s (right). You can also see some of my other NF books in the background...including an A. Ham cameo (see if you can spot him). Anyway, I need to read some of these again - or for the first time (Robert Caro cough). #politicsandbooks #hamiljokes
