FBI 100 Years: The Unofficial History
by : Holden, Henry
On the eve of the FBI's centenary, this book offers the first comprehensive illustrated account of the bureau's 100-year history. Granted unprecedented access to both FBI Headquarters, the Quantico academy, and historic records, Henry Holden presents a rare inside view of the agency's workings, as well as a compelling, closely observed picture of it's ever-changing role, power, notable cases, and controversies through the years. Chronicling the bureau's successes and failures from it's early days as Teddy Roosevelt's trust-busting detective force, John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, through the Hoover years, fighting the Mafia, Triads, Drug lords, and now both domestic and foreign terrorism, this book is the most authoritative and thorough ever written about the FBI, which employs 17,000 personnel, in more that sixty countries under the motto Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity .
