Description

This official coffee-table history of the FBI celebrates the agency's 100th anniversary in July 2008. The book traces the FBI's journey from fledgling startup to one of the most respected and recognized names in national security. It takes you on a walk through the seven key chapters in FBI history--the early formative period; the gangster-driven crime wave of the '20s and '30s; the anxious age of World War II and the Cold War; the turbulent '60s and its burgeoning civil rights movement; the systemic corruption of the Watergate years; the rise of global terror and crime; and the post 9/11 era. The book includes extensive photographs, including never-before-seen pictures from the FBI files.
