The CIA, Political Bias, and International Relations Scholarship --
A Debate

Beginning in 1999, a controversy emerged in international relations,
concerning alleged political bias in the professional journals. The key
assertion that I and others have advanced is that academic writing in this
area has degenerated into a crude apologia for American hegemony.  A series
of articles appeared on the resulting controversy. More recent articles on
this topic also have focused on the CIA's connections to political science
and academia more generally.
