Between 1933 and 1939, the FBI pursued an aggressive, highly publicized nationwide campaign against a succession of Depression era "public enemies," including John Dillinger, George "Baby Face" Nelson, Charles Arthur "Pretty Boy" Floyd, George "Machine Gun Kelly" Barnes, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, and the Ma Barker Gang. Bureau Director J. Edgar Hoover's successes in this crusade made him the hero of law and order in the public mind. This historical analysis reveals the agency's often illegal tactics, including torture, frame-ups, and summary executions--later expanded throughout Hoover's 48-year reign in Washington, D.C., and exposed only after his death (some say murder) in 1972.

Joyce and the G Men

Joyce and the G-Men explores how these linkages are indicative of the culture of the FBI under Hoover, and the resurgence of American anti-intellectualism.

Several years ago on a whim, Culleton requested James Joyce's FBI file. Hoover had Joyce under surveillance as a suspected Communist, and the chain of cross-references that Culleton followed from Joyce's file lead her to obscenity trials and, less obviously, to a plot to assassinate Irish labour leader James Larkin. Hoover devoted a great deal of energy to keeping watch on intellectuals and considered literature to be dangerous on a number of levels. Joyce and the G-Men explores how these linkages are indicative of the culture of the FBI under Hoover, and the resurgence of American anti-intellectualism.

How FBI surveillance influenced African American writing Few institutions seem more opposed than African American literature and J. Edgar Hoover's white-bread Federal Bureau of Investigation. But behind the scenes the FBI's hostility to black protest was energized by fear of and respect for black writing. Drawing on nearly 14,000 pages of newly released FBI files, F.B. Eyes exposes the Bureau’s intimate policing of five decades of African American poems, plays, essays, and novels. Starting in 1919, year one of Harlem’s renaissance and Hoover’s career at the Bureau, secretive FBI "ghostreaders" monitored the latest developments in African American letters. By the time of Hoover’s death in 1972, these ghostreaders knew enough to simulate a sinister black literature of their own. The official aim behind the Bureau’s close reading was to anticipate political unrest. Yet, as William J. Maxwell reveals, FBI surveillance came to influence the creation and public reception of African American literature in the heart of the twentieth century. Taking his title from Richard Wright’s poem "The FB Eye Blues," Maxwell details how the FBI threatened the international travels of African American writers and prepared to jail dozens of them in times of national emergency. All the same, he shows that the Bureau’s paranoid style could prompt insightful criticism from Hoover’s ghostreaders and creative replies from their literary targets. For authors such as Claude McKay, James Baldwin, and Sonia Sanchez, the suspicion that government spy-critics tracked their every word inspired rewarding stylistic experiments as well as disabling self-censorship. Illuminating both the serious harms of state surveillance and the ways in which imaginative writing can withstand and exploit it, F.B. Eyes is a groundbreaking account of a long-hidden dimension of African American literature.

Modernism on File: Writers, Artists, and the FBI, 1920-1950 brings together important new scholarship focused on J. Edgar Hoover's FBI and its institutional presence in shaping and directing American print, film, and art culture. From Harlem to Hollywood, Hoover and his bureau workers were bent on decontaminating America's creativity and this collection looks at the writers and artists who were tagged, tracked, and in some cases, trapped by the FBI. Contributors detail the threatening aspects of political power and critique the very historiography of modernism, acknowledging that modernism was on trial during those years.

This sixth in a series continues this non-academic author's ground-breaking word by word analysis of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. This volume covers all of the long chapter 2.3 with the intent to explore its 80 pages as an art object. Coming off the last chapter about children, the role performed in the case of children by over-bearing parents is taken over by imperialistic forces in the case of adults. The imperialists consume weak adult spirits by telling them what to do. Anal-retentive children become passive/aggressive adults under the direction of imperialists. They are the "head liners" in this chapter. The spirit imperialists in this chapter range from the church allowing you to experience the joy of sexual intercourse only in the harness of the properly married state, to the state ordering you to kill other humans, to your customers whose desires you must appease in order to do business and to your collective unconscious which houses the collective bulletins registered in human experience. All of these usurpers are deployed to limit your free will and tell you what to do. They speak to your outer ear in order to smother the voice in your inner ear. In terms of RCC theology related to the human spirit, the Holy Spirit is at least theoretically the source of mutuality and is supposed to infuse the spirit of the joined father-son divine mutuality into our human relationships. But that spirit has since Pentecost been locked up in and administered exclusively by the church through its sacraments. In Joyce's theology, a passive Holy Spirit sequestered in the church does register the relationship in the trinity of father and son, but that relationship is not charity but the domination of the father over the son. Joyce sees this father dominance in Christ's fearful reluctance in the Garden of Gethsemane. In this chapter the three main victims made passive by the spirit imperialists are the Captain in the Norwegian Captain tale, Buckley in the Buckley and Russian General tale, and Earwicker in his own pub. The subject arenas for passivity are sex, war and earning a living. In the background as always with Joyce is the passivity of Eve and Adam in the Garden, a passivity that let aggressive TZTZ god into their spirits as fear and dependency and was laid down in the collective unconscious. The setting for this chapter about the human spirit is the sale of alcoholic spirits by Earwicker in his Pub aptly named the "House of Call." With "stout" flowing into glasses and coins pinging into his till, this chapter focuses on what else in the process the Proprietor Earwicker sells to the consuming patrons. And that what else is his own stout, his own spirit. Even though he is the Proprietor, he no longer owns himself. He takes their "orders" and then takes their orders. The audience in this pub setting is exclusively male. And inasmuch as the alcohol does the talking, when these males do and say what they want, they listen to the same old stories and banter at rather than talk to each other. There is no union or communion or mutuality-promoting conversation. Passive/aggressives yell at each other but don't communicate, communication being the mutuality-based network of the Holy Spirit. In a pun that connects much of this chapter, juvenile psychosexual "hang-ups" become telephone-type "hang-ups" in adult communication and mutuality.
