Enemies: A History Of The Fbi

For decades the FBI has been seen as the ultimate crime-fighting force. In Enemies, Tim Weiner reveals its true role: as America's secret police. He shows how, since its creation over a century ago, the Bureau has been wielded by government as a weapon against its own citizens, using illegal surveillance, blackmail, burglary, propaganda and cover-ups to fight enemies both real and imagined, and becoming, under J. Edgar Hoover, a law unto itself. Drawing on shocking, never-before-seen FBI files, this is the untold story of America's real intelligence service. *This book may have minor shelve wear.
