Loch K. Johnson is Regents Professor of International Affairs in the School of International and Public Affairs at the University of Georgia. He is the author of many books, most recently The Threat on the Horizon: An Inside Account of America's Search for Security After the Cold War.
"Forty years after the Church Committee lifted the veil on the covert operations of the FBI and CIA, the national security issues that the investigation raised remain all too relevant. As both a committee insider and a scholar, Loch Johnson provides a lively, reliable, and insightful account of how that investigation operated, what it uncovered, and what reforms it prompted." Donald A. Ritchie, author of The United States Congress: A Very Short Introduction "Loch Johnson is the nation's leading political scientist, when it comes to the study of US intelligence agencies and issues. A Season of Inquiry Revisited is great reading for anyone with an interest in congressional and intelligence history, not to mention present-day controversies about intelligence." David Barrett, author of The CIA and Congress: The Untold Story from Truman to Kennedy.
