Preview

This chapter uses two controversial cases—FBI campaigns against the American Indian Movement in the mid-1970s and the Committee in Support of the People of El Salvador in the 1980s—to demonstrate how scholars' blurring of key boundaries defining both the form and motive behind FBI actions has shaped the debate over the Bureau's treatment of politically motivated organizations.
