Loch K. Johnson, an author and professor of political science at the University of Georgia, will present a David M. Kennedy Center Lecture, “Limiting the Risk of Intelligence Failure,” Tuesday, March 17, at 2 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.
Johnson’s research interests are the American Presidency, Congress and national security policy, and his expertise lies in the activities of U.S. intelligence agencies.
Three of his books, “A Season of Inquiry,” “America’s Secret Power” and “Secret Agencies,” display a comprehensive grasp of U.S. intelligence.
Johnson received the Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Award, the University of Georgia’s highest honor for instructors. He was also instrumental in founding the School of Public and International Affairs. He received a doctorate in political science from the University of California-Riverside.
