Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Calling the FBI America's political police, this book examines the agency's harassment, surveillance, and disruption of black and Native American groups in the 1960s and 1970s, and shows how it sought to maintain the sociopolitical status quo within the country. The authors demonstrate how the FBI's covert counter-intelligence program known as COINTELPRO, which was set up to undermine liberal groups, came to symbolize the whole context of ``clandestine political repression activities.'' For students of radical movements and government repression. John R. Sillito, Weber State Coll. Lib., Ogden, Ut.

Not only was this an excellent book on this country's sordid past, but the ideas in this book have increasing relevance today, relating to the US war on terrorism. The crimes committed by the FBI, and the numerous COINTELPRO operations, have largely been forgotten, yet with the passing of the Patriot Act and various reportings of people being detained after Sept 11, without being charged, this important piece of history needs to remembered.
