Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Cunningham analyzes the counterintelligence program of the FBI that was discovered in the early 1970s and formally stopped as an illegal operation in violation of the target's civil rights. Illegal surveillance was conducted with a broad range of groups from the New Left to civil rights groups to the Ku Klux Klan and related hate groups. Cunningham asserts that while the formal COINTELPRO was outlawed, many of its practices have continued because they are rooted in the strong anti-communist era when the FBI's activities went far beyond mere surveillance. Cunningham reflects on both the similar and distinctly different treatment of the New Left, which FBI director J. Edgar Hoover considered to be unpatriotic, and the Klan, which was viewed as patriotic but prone to violence. Cunningham draws connections between structural deficiencies of the agency from the 1970s until today, and their impact on the agency's inability to detect the activities of the 9/11 terrorists. This is an absorbing book for readers interested in the balance between our government's questionable surveillance practices and concerns about national security. Vernon Ford

...we find out how the state tries to control (KKK) or destroy (New Left) citizen movements in the US. Law enforcement goes well beyond its bounds and serves the status quo or, as we call it today, the 1%.

I grew up in a university town during the 60's and 70's and I always got the impression that there was "something happening". It was during an internet search for information about that period of history and protest events that I came across this book. What I learned was more familiar than surprising. At any rate, I would advise anyone who aspires to write fiction or screenplays set in this time period to read either this book or something else on this subject. Without some knowledge of these activities, a writer would be naive and poorly informed.

Format: Paperback
Mediocre reportage with no particular insights into the FBI Cointellpro program. History the way the New Left would like it.
