Landscapes of Secrecy: The CIA in History, Fiction and Memory
Dr Kaeten Mistry is a Leverhulme Fellow at the University of Warwick. His research interests lie in American foreign relations, the international history of the Cold War, and intelligence. He is currently completing a book on US-Italian relations and American political warfare in the early Cold War, and has published articles in Diplomatic History, Cold War History, and Modern Italy. He is also working on a new project that examines how covert action, especially CIA activity, was conceptualised, framed, and rationalised during the Cold War by scholars, journalists, politicians, spies, and political activists. He is guest editing a special issue of Intelligence and National Security on the CIA and US Foreign Policy, which will appear in April-June 2011. After completing his Ph.D. at the University of Birmingham in 2008, Dr Mistry was Post-Doctoral Fellow at the UCD Clinton Institute for American Studies, Ireland.
