The FBI Encyclopediaby Michael Newton
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.
