Product Description

Synopsis

The anticommunist crusade of the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not start with the Cold War. Based on research in the early files of the FBI's predecessor, the Bureau of Investigation, the author describes how the federal security officials played a decisive role in bringing about the first anticommunist hysteria in the US, the Red Scare in 1919 to 1920. The Bureau's political role, it is argued, originated in the attempt by the modern federal state during the early decades of the 20th century to regulate and control any organised opposition to the political, economic and social order.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb book; well researched; excellent for the historian 3 Jun 2003

Format:Paperback
It is unfortunate that I am unable to find more books published by Dr. Schmidt. He is a fluid writer. He does an excellent job documenting his sources (with a few minor exceptions, I found most of what I needed at the National Archives). His perspesctive on Wilson contrasts will with Richard Gid Powers' point of view in "Not Without Honor" duing 1919. His book is an easy read. Considering its price tag, I would encourage our local library to purchase a copy first. However, I use the book almost daily in my research. I've memorized certain quotes and page numbers. The only other book that's suffered from equal bruality has been Robert K. Murray's Red Scare: A Study in National Hysteria. =) Not all of the book was relevant, but thank God for your section on 1919-1920, particularly your quote by Stephen A. Connell and the 65-X1 boxes from
