Reviewed by Paul W. Blackstock and Frank L. Schaf[1]

This book contains nine essays based on research and interviews plus information obtained from recently released documents of the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act. The essays are enlarged versions of articles that appeared in the socialist newsweekly MILITANT. COINTELPRO is the code name for the FBI’s counterintelligence program to track down subversion in the United States. Of special interest is the fact that there are a great many FBI documents reprinted in the book from the COINTELPRO program.
