Claire Potter's is the first book to look at the structural, legal, and cultural aspects of J. Edgar Hoover's war on crime in the 1930s, a New Deal campaign which forged new links between citizenship, federal policing, and the ideal of centralized government.

An alcoholic, anti-Communist extremist, and relentless self-promoter who recklessly ruined thousands of people’s lives for no good reason at all except to get on television?
