FMU associate provost's book makes Wall Street Journal’s list

FLORENCE, S.C. – The book, "Presidential Commissions and National Security: The Politics of Damage Control," written by Kenneth Kitts, associate provost at Francis Marion University, has made the Wall Street Journal’s Five Best list.

The book was published by Lynne Rienner Publishers of Boulder, Colo., and according to the book review by Max Holland, "Kenneth Kitts shows why federal panels are imperfect and why they often inadvertently spur the conspiracy thinking they are designed to minimize.”

Kitts, a native of Waynesville, N.C., earned the B.A. and M.A. degrees in political science from Appalachian State University, and the Ph.D. degree in political science from the University of South Carolina. He joined the FMU faculty in 1987 and was the university’s Distinguished Professor for 2002-03.
