Larry Hancock’s new book, co-authored with Stuart Wexler, is called “Shadow Warfare: The History of America’s Undeclared Wars” and will be published by Counterpoint in March.
I just got my copy and am looking forward to sharing it with my students in my History of the CIA course at the University of California in the District of Columbia. Hancock is author of “Somebody Would Have Talked” about JFK’s assassination.
