NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post â€˘ New York Daily News â€˘ Slateâ€śFast-paced, fair-minded, and fascinating, Tim Weinerâ€™s Enemies turns the long history of the FBI into a story that is as compelling, and important, as todayâ€™s headlines.â€ťâ€”Jeffrey Toobin, author of The Oath Â NATIONAL BESTSELLEREnemies is the first definitive history of the FBIâ€™s secret intelligence operations, from an author whose work on the Pentagon and the CIA won him the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Â We think of the FBI as Americaâ€™s police force. But secret intelligence is the Bureauâ€™s first and foremost mission. Enemies is the story of how presidents have used the FBI as the most formidable intelligence force in American history. Â Here is the hidden history of Americaâ€™s hundred-year war on terror. The FBI has fought against terrorists, spies, anyone it deemed subversiveâ€”and sometimes American presidents. The FBIâ€™s secret intelligence and surveillance techniques have created a tug-of-war between protecting national security and infringing upon civil liberties. It is a tension that strains the very fabric of a free republic.Praise for Enemies Â â€śOutstanding.â€ťâ€”The New York Times Â â€śAbsorbing . . . a sweeping narrative that is all the more entertaining because it is so redolent with screw-ups and scandals.â€ťâ€”Los Angeles TimesFrom the Hardcover edition.
