The CIA and the Marshall Plan


Product Description
Product Details


This work makes a significant contribution, chiefly in its analysis of the rise to positions of power in the CIA of those who advocated a clandestine approach to America's foreign policy goals. Especially useful are the discussions concerning the relationship between U.S. foundations (e.g., Ford) and the new clandestine organizations within the government, particularly the Office of Policy Coordination; the reasons why key individuals moved from these foundations to OPC; the rising interest in the uses of covert propaganda as an adjunct to the European Recovery Program (ERP, the Marshall Plan); and the way in which funds for these operations were secretly funneled to European assets (notably within the labor movement) through the cover of the Marshall Plan.--Loch K. Johnson, author of America's Secret Power: The CIA in a Democratic Society and A Season of Inquiry: The Senate Intelligence InvestigationThis book is highly original and is characterized by both insight and clarity. Pisani's link between OPC and the Marshall Plan is utterly convincing and invites reappraisal of even the most recent scholarship. . . . She has a dream of a writing style.--Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones, author of The CIA and American Democracy
