A study of political surveillance by the intelligence am, of the New York City Police Department. The author, a New York Civil Liberties Union lawyer, served as one of the defense attorneys for three members of the Brooklyn Black Panther Party who were arrested for attempted robbery and possession of illegal weapons through the efforts of a police undercover agent. Chevigny argues that undercover agents tend to step across the boundary dividing the collector of intelligence from the agent provocateur. He cites numerous examples.
