Burglary: The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover's Secret F.B.I.

by Betty Medsger Author

As the 70s reached their conclusion, a physics professor from Haverford College began a quest to do something that to many others would seem unthinkable: burglarize the F.B.I. In this incredible retelling of this true story, author Betty Medsger reveals how Keith Forsyth and several accomplices broke in to the F.B.I. offices in Media, Pennsylvania and revealed the horrifying extent of J. Edgar Hoover's authoritarian and fascist overreach in his role as director of the Bureau. With historical details and analysis as well as action-packed narrative of the break-in, Medsger's writing is sure to keep you on your toes. Written more than forty years after the break-in, the activists responsible for bringing Hoover's shadow Bureau to light reveal details of their mission for the first time. Another entry in the proud American tradition of whistleblowers.
