Описание:

Few institutions seem more opposed than African American literature and J. Edgar Hoovers white-bread Federal Bureau of Investigation. But behind the scenes the FBIs hostility to black protest was energized by fear of and respect for black writing. Drawing on nearly 14,000 pages of newly released FBI files, F.B. Eyes exposes the Bureaus intimate policing of five decades of African American poems, plays, essays, and novels. Starting in 1919, year one of Harlems renaissance and Hoovers career at the Bureau, secretive FBI ghostreaders monitored the latest developments in African American letters. By the time of Hoovers death in 1972, these ghostreaders knew enough to simulate a sinister black literature of their own. The official aim behind the Bureaus close reading was to anticipate political unrest. Yet, as William J. Maxwell reveals, FBI surveillance came to influence the creation and public reception of African American literature in the heart of the twentieth century.

Taking his title from Richard Wrights poem The FB Eye Blues, Maxwell details how the FBI threatened the international travels of African American writers and prepared to jail dozens of them in times of national emergency. All the same, he shows that the Bureaus paranoid style could prompt insightful criticism from Hoovers ghostreaders and creative replies from their literary targets. For authors such as Claude McKay, James Baldwin, and Sonia Sanchez, the suspicion that government spy-critics tracked their every word inspired rewarding stylistic experiments as well as disabling self-censorship.

Illuminating both the serious harms of state surveillance and the ways in which imaginative writing can withstand and exploit it, F.B. Eyes is a groundbreaking account of a long-hidden dimension of African American literature.

Описание: The Federal Bureau of Investigation was an agency devoted to American ideals, professionalism and scientific methods, directed by a sage and selfless leader - and anyone who said otherwise was a no-good subversive, bent on discrediting the American way of life. That was the official story and how J. Edgar Hoover made it stick - running roughshod over those same American ideals - is the story this book tells in full for the first time.From Hoover’s first tentative media contacts in the 1930s to the Bureau’s eponymous television series in the 1960s and 1970s, FBI officials laboured mightily to control the Bureau’s image - efforts that put them not-so-squarely at the forefront of the emerging field of public relations. In the face of any journalistic challenges to the FBI’s legitimacy and operations, Hoover was able to create a benign, even heroic counter narrative, thanks in part to his friends in newsrooms. Matthew Cecil’s own prodigious investigation through hundreds of thousands of pages from FBI files reveals the lengths to which Hoover and his lackeys went to use the press to hoodwink the American people. Even more sobering is how much help he got from so many in the press.Conservative journalists like broadcaster Fulton Lewis, Jr. and columnist George Sokolsky positioned themselves as “objective” defenders of Hoover’s FBI and were rewarded with access, friendship and other favours. Some of Hoover’s friends even became adjunct-FBI agents, designated as Special Service Contacts who discreetly gathered information for the Bureau. “Enemies,” on the other hand, were closely monitored and subjected to operations that disrupted their work or even undermined and ended their careers. Noted journalists like I. F. Stone, George Seldes, James A. Wechsler and many others found themselves the subjects of FBI investigations and, occasionally, named on the Bureau’s “custodial detention index,” targeted for arrest in the case of a national emergency.With experience as a political reporter, a press secretary and a scholar and professor of journalism and public relations, Matthew Cecil is uniquely qualified to conduct us through the maze of political intrigue and influence peddling that mark - and often mask - the history of the FBI. His work serves as a cautionary tale about how manipulative government agents and compliant journalists can undermine the very institutions and ideals they are tasked with protecting.

The Crusade Years, 1933-1955: Herbert Hoover`s Lost Memoir of the New Deal Era and Its Aftermath

Описание: Covering an eventful period in Herbert Hoover’s career—and, more specifically, his life as a political pugilist from 1933 to 1955—The Crusade Years is a previously unknown memoir that Hoover composed and revised during the 1940s and 1950s—and then, surprisingly, set aside. A parallel volume to Hoover’s Freedom Betrayed, this work recounts Hoover’s family life after March 4, 1933, his myriad philanthropic interests, and, most of all, his unrelenting “crusade against collectivism” in American life. Aside from its often feisty account of Hoover’s political activities during the Roosevelt/Truman era, and its window on Hoover’s private life and campaigns for good causes, The Crusade Years invites us to reflect on the factors that made possible his extraordinarily fruitful post-presidential years. As least as much as Theodore Roosevelt, he came to personify the activist former president; some historians have even argued that he invented it. In this realm of exertion, as in so many others, Herbert Hoover was no ordinary man. Of all the individuals who have served as president of the United States, none has ever written a set of memoirs as prodigious as his. Rescued from obscurity, this nearly forgotten manuscript is published here—and its contents made available to scholars—for the first time.

Описание: The world was at war, America precariously poised on the sidelines. But already a second secret war was well underway. While he fought on the home front to consolidate the FBI’s intelligence gathering power, J. Edgar Hoover was conducting an all-out campaign to make his agency America’s first foreign espionage service - a campaign that would lead to an uneasy alliance with British intelligence in a brilliantly successful operation to undermine Germany.Taking up the tale begun in his acclaimed Origins of FBI Counterintelligence, FBI historian and former agent Raymond Batvinis mines a wealth of heretofore untapped resources to expose Hoover’s remarkable connivances and accomplishments in concert - and occasionally contention - with the Allies in outsmarting German intelligence. Hoover’s Secret War opens up a world of spy rings, secret and double agents, surveillance, codes and ciphers, wire taps, micro dots, mail drops, invisible ink, radio transmissions and deception and disinformation as it tracks the warring nations spreading their intelligence tentacles throughout Europe and North and South America. As it documents the rocky evolution of the FBI’s relationship with Britain’s vaunted MI5 and MI6, the book brings to light the feud between Hoover and Williams Stephenson, director of the British Secret Intelligence Service’s U.S. operation.Batvinis reveals how the agency gained access to ULTRA intelligence. He uncovers eye-opening details of the FBI’s participation in the famed “Double-Cross"" System, which effectively “turned” German agents against the Fatherland, among them a flamboyant, larger-than-life playboy, a world famous French flyer and a lecherous Dutchman. Batvinis tells for the first time how the Bureau manipulated these agents and how it transmitted deceptive information critical to the Normandy landings, the Allied invasion of the Marshall Islands and the atomic bomb programme, among other matters. Rich with secrets and surprises worthy of the finest spy fiction, this true story of espionage and counterintelligence gives us our first clear look at the secret second world war and a significant moment in history.
