FBI Encyclopedia

Overview

The FBI, America's most famous law enforcement agency, was established more than ninety years ago. Since its inception in 1908, the FBI has been the subject of countless books, articles, essays, congressional investigations, television programs and motion pictures, but it remains an enigma to most U.S. citizens, deliberately shrouded in mystery on the basis of privacy or national security concerns.

This work presents entries on a broad range of topics related to the FBI, ...

Overview

The FBI, America's most famous law enforcement agency, was established more than ninety years ago. Since its inception in 1908, the FBI has been the subject of countless books, articles, essays, congressional investigations, television programs and motion pictures, but it remains an enigma to most U.S. citizens, deliberately shrouded in mystery on the basis of privacy or national security concerns.

This work presents entries on a broad range of topics related to the FBI, including biographical sketches of directors, agents, attorneys general, notorious fugitives, and people (both well known and unknown) targeted by the FBI; events, cases and investigations such as ILLWIND, ABSCAM and Amerasia; FBI terminology and programs such as COINTELPRO and VICAP; organizations targeted for surveillance or disruption including the KGB and the Ku Klux Klan; and various general topics such as psychological profiling, fingerprinting and electronic surveillance. It begins with a brief overview of the FBI's origins and history.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The product of more than 40 years of research, this is Newton's third book dedicated solely to the FBI and the first ever published that presents the full scope of bureau history in an encyclopedia format. Spanning nearly 90 years and ranging from Robert William Abel to Louis Zukofsky, the entries include biographies, organizational histories, and legislative profiles as well as coverage of famous cases and FBI structure, programs, and procedures. The entries are both informative and interesting and include people and organizations targeted by the bureau. Among the significant people and events portrayed are John Dillinger, W.C. Fields, the JFK assassination, militia movements, Elvis Presley, Watergate, and the USA PATRIOT Act. This excellent reference tool will have great appeal to a wide audience, not just those with a special interest in criminal justice. Highly recommended.-Tim Delaney, SUNY at Oswego Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
