The Cointelpro Papers: Documents from the FBI's Secret Wars Against Dissent in the United States

The Cointelpro Papers: Documents from the FBI's Secret Wars Against Dissent in the United States Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers anxious about civil liberties under George W. Bush will find fodder for fears — and suggestions for activism — in The Cointelpro Papers. Ward Churchill and Jim Vander Wall's expose of America's political police force, the FBI, reveals the steel fist undergirding "compassionate conservatism's" velvet glove. Using original FBI memos, the authors provide extensive analysis of the agency's treatment of the left, from the Communist Party in the 1950s to the Central America solidarity movement in the 1980s. The authors' new introduction posits likely trajectories for domestic repression.

Synopsis:

FBI documents and original interviews reveal the FBI's political campaigns from 1956 into the 1980s.
