About the Author:

Ward Churchill (Keetowah Cherokee) has achieved an unparalleled reputation as a scholar-activist and analyst of indigenous issues. A Professor of American Indian Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder and a leading member of AIM, Churchill is the author of numerous books, including From a Native Son, and, with Jim Vander Wall, Agents of Repression, and COINTELPRO Papers.

From Booklist:

An agent from 1951 to 1977, Swearingen collaborated on two previous books the bureau no doubt hates: Agents of Repression and The COINTELPRO Papers. His new book is autobiographical, tracing his involvement with the FBI from the time he signed on after World War II to his retirement and beyond, as Swearingen began to testify to "FBI chicanery" on behalf of bureau victims. Swearingen began his career doing "black bag jobs" on Communists in Chicago. In Kentucky and New York City, he spent years doing serious criminal investigations, which had been his goal in joining the FBI. But Hoover fixated on the threat posed by such groups as the Black Panthers and the Weathermen, Swearingen explains, and the Constitution once more went out the window. Some of his stories (e.g., the bureau's harassment of Jean Seberg) are familiar, but Swearingen is more explicit than most on the FBI's role in the police raid that killed Chicago Panthers Fred Hampton and Mark Clark and in the framing of Los Angeles Panther Geronimo Pratt for a crime he didn't commit. FBI Secrets won't win awards for graceful prose, but it does shed new light on an important pattern of corruption and repression. Mary Carroll
