Enemies : a history of the FBI by Tim Weiner( Book )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 2,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enemies is the first definitive history of the FBI's secret intelligence operations, from an author whose work on the Pentagon and the CIA won him the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. We think of the FBI as America's police force. But secret intelligence is the Bureau's first and foremost mission. Enemies is the story of how presidents have used the FBI to conduct political warfare, and how the Bureau became the most powerful intelligence service the United States possesses. Here is the hidden history of America's hundred-year war on terror. The FBI has fought against terrorists, spies, anyone it deemed subversive--and sometimes American presidents. The FBI's secret intelligence and surveillance techniques have created a tug-of-war between national security and civil liberties. It is a tension that strains the very fabric of a free republic. --Publisher description
Betrayal : the story of Aldrich Ames, an American spy by Tim Weiner( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Betrayal is the remarkable story of the last American spy of the cold war: Aldrich "Rick" Ames, the most destructive traitor in the history of the Central Intelligence Agency. Tim Weiner, David Johnston, and Neil A. Lewis, reporters for The New York Times, tell how the barons of the CIA could not believe that its headquarters harbored a traitor. For years, the Agency was baffled by a wily Russian spymaster who played a high-stakes chess game against the Americans, deceiving the CIA into thinking that there were other moles -- or no moles at all. It took nearly eight years for the CIA to share the full facts of the scenario with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Once they knew those facts, the men and women of the FBI tracked Ames day and night for nine months before they arrested him. They tell their story here in astonishing detail for the first time. The interviews are entirely on-the-record. There are no pseudonyms, anonymous quotes, or invented scenes. The men betrayed by Ames were real people, and the stories of their lives are the true history of the espionage game in the waning years of the cold war
One man against the world : the tragedy of Richard Nixon by Tim Weiner( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 1,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the first history of President Richard Nixon covering all of his secret tapes and documents, many declassified in the past two years. Award-winning journalist Tim Weiner presents a devastating portrait of a tortured and tormented man, showing how, in Nixon's mind, the conflict in Vietnam and the crimes of Watergate were one war, fought on two fronts. He trusted no one--not his Cabinet, not his closest advisers, not the American people. Elected to unite a nation as discordant as it was at the close of the Civil War, Nixon disdained domestic policies and programs. He wanted above all to create what he called "a generation of peace"--By asking the world's leading Communist dictators to help him end the Vietnam War. He saw antiwar American citizens as opponents no less dangerous than the enemy in Vietnam. Gripped by rage and insomnia, he fought his foes without mercy. Abroad, his best weapons were B-52 bombers. At home, he used undercover agents, warrantless wiretaps, break-ins, and burglaries. Almost all his presidency is recorded on tape or preserved on paper, creating a remarkable record of the most intimate and damning conversations. Only recently, after forty years of struggle, has much of this jaw-dropping information been made public. Nixon saw himself not only as the leader of the free world but "the world leader"--yet he was addicted to the gutter politics that ruined him. His political suicide has no equal in American history.--Publisher information

FBI : Die wahre Geschichte einer legendären Organisation by Tim Weiner( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El premio Pulitzer Tim Weiner nos cuenta la historia definitiva del FBI. La Oficina Federal de Investigación estadounidense se fundó hace un siglo y en pocos años se convirtió en un servicio de inteligencia a disposición de las necesidades políticas de los presidentes republicanos y demócratas y de sus gobiernos. Durante cerca de cincuenta años, bajo la dirección de J. Edgar Hoover, la agencia actuó con total impunidad y cometió tremendos abusos de poder en nombre de la libertad, la democracia y la justicia. Arrestos y detenciones ilegales, escuchas, robos, espionaje, todo estaba permitido para luchar contra los enemigos del Estado. Basándose en setenta mil documentos recientemente desclasificados, cientos de entrevistas y materiales no disponibles hasta el momento, el autor desvela datos sorprendentes, desacredita viejos mitos sobre el FBI y cuestiona las técnicas de vigilancia que violan las libertades individuales en pro de la seguridad nacional."--Page 4 of cover
