Books Info:

The Burglary free pdf In late 1970, a mild-mannered Haverford College physics professor privately asked a few people this question: What do you think of burglarizing an FBI office? In remarkable detail and with astonishing depth of research, Betty Medsger reveals the never-before-told full story of the history-changing break-in at the Media, Pennsylvania, FBI offices. Through their exploits, a group of unlikely activists exposed the shocking truth that J. Edgar Hoover was operating a shadow Bureau engaged in illegal surveillance and harassment of the American people. "The Burglary" brings the activists, who have kept their secret for forty-three years, into the public eye for the first time including, new to this edition, the recent discovery of the eighth and final member of the team. The burglars story of personal sacrifice and civil disobedience is a vital episode in the American whistle-blower tradition that includes the Pentagon Papers, Watergate s Deep Throat, and, most recently, Edward Snowden and the NSA."
