"In a fascinating, highly readable, and original new work, Tricia Jenkins takes on the seldom-explored topic of the Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) relationship with Hollywood. While this may conjure up cloak-and-dagger images of secretive operations as befits the agency's image on big and little screens, Jenkins concentrates instead on how the CIA has (or has not) managed that image overtly, that is, through established, above board, public affairs channels and liaisons. Highly original and well researched, Jenkins's work makes a worthy contribution to the fledgling literature on this topic...Overall, Jenkins's work is fresh and original, and demonstrates sound scholarship. The author has a passion for the topic that translates to vibrant writing. It is also a concise as well as entertaining look at an aspect of the CIA--its media relations with Hollywood--of which little is known. Enthusiastically written and incorporating effective, illustrative case studies, The CIA in Hollywood is definitely recommended to students of film, media relations, the CIA, and U.S. interagency relations." - Marks Montesclaros, H-War "Argo and Zero Dark Thirty are only the latest film productions the CIA has influenced in the 15 years since the Agency opened its official liaison office to Hollywood. Tricia Jenkins examines the history of this version of "Hollywood confidential" in The CIA in Hollywood: How the Agency Shapes Film and Television. Short and dry, her book raises serious ethical and legal questions about the relationship between the CIA and Hollywood, and the extent to which we consume propaganda from one through the other." - Los Angeles Review of Books
