CHOICE Johnson offers a necessary and encyclopedic account of intelligence oversight...bring[ing] a wealth of knowledge to this ambitious project... Spy Watching will surely come to be seen as an essential part of the literature on intelligence administration in the US.
Kirkus In this insightful examination of America's struggle to balance liberty and security, Johnson... writes from personal experience and extensive scholarship, so readers will encounter a great deal of information, much of it unsettling... [A] thoughtful, not terribly optimistic analysis of the perpetual tension between secret services and liberal democracy.
Professional Security Magazine This is a learned, mighty and magisterial book.
