An attempt to provide a theoretical base for analyzing foreign intervention short of war during the Cold War. The author argues that the CIA should not be precluded “from direct participation in the formulation and execution of American foreign policy,” and that “if the CIA is to be effective in the more clandestine aspects of diplomacy, it must be granted a good deal of freedom to interpret and-to improvise upon stated general policy.”
