On the long trail of a big story

I have known for years that Betty Medsger, a former colleague and friend when we both lived in the Bay area, was working on the book that became The Burglary: The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover’s Secret FBI.

And now, it is here, and I see that one reason it took a long time arriving is that it is a very big book: not only the story of a group of eight anti-war activists who stole FBI files from an office in Media, Pennsylvania, but also the story of the world they unlocked the door to: J. Edgar Hoover’s secret FBI.

For more on Medsger’s long journey into the past – and why it matters to us, see my piece in the Berkeley Daily Planet:

Betty Medsger’s The Burglary: They Broke the Law to Preserve It.
