This is the case that broke open the COINTELPRO operation at the FBI and all of J. Edgar Hoover’s dirty tricks.
With the Aaron Swartz tragedy so fresh in our minds, it's worthwhile to re-visit the machinations of institutional persecution and cover-up that comes right from the top.
Fred Hampton is still a household name in the black community and anyone who ever filed a “Freedom of Information Act" request.
I helped organize a national tour of the movie based on Hampton's case in the 1970s... it was seared into my mind. I’m delighted to find Haas's excellent new book on the whole saga.
The story is enthralling— scary, suspenseful, funny— young people hanging onto the edge of their seats by sheer wit and passion. It’s hard to believe they were so young, in their late teens. and taking on the world. Inspiring.
Excellent narration by George Newborn who brings emotion and clarity to the reading.

shows how far we have come but also how far we still have to go!
Grate read it should be read in schools I'd recommend to everyone to understand what happened here
The best book I have read about the 1960's, 1970's US radical liberation groups.
Written by someone who lived through it and was committed to the ideals of such a movement.
