""Seeing Red""Federal Campaigns Against Black Militancy, 1919-1925Theodore Kornweibel, Jr.
A gripping, painstakingly documented account of a neglected chapter in the history of American political intelligence.
""Kornweibel is an adept storyteller who admits he is drawn to the role of the historian-as-detective....What emerges is a fascinating tale of secret federal agents, many of them blacks, who were willing to take advantage of the color of their skin to spy upon others of their race. And it is a tale of sometimes desperate and frequently angry government officials, including J. Edgar Hoover, who were willing to go to great lengths to try to stop what they perceived as threats to continued white supremacy."" -- Patrick S. Washburn, Journalism History
