    "Six thousand innocent persons seized, arrested, thrown into jail, in one night, is a pretty big job. And when the victims are chosen because they happen to be active trade unionists or members of certain political parties and minority groups, you can transform a free country into a despotic police state, if you can get away with a stunt like that. Yet, that was a job pulled off on the night of January 2, 1920, by Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer and his right-hand man J.Edgar Hoover. And it "Six thousand innocent persons seized, arrested, thrown into jail, in one night, is a pretty big job.

Yet, that was a job pulled off on the night of January 2, 1920, by Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer and his right-hand man J.Edgar Hoover. And it happened here." This is how the book begins. It's a very short read, but a necessary glimpse into history. Recommended!

    I was informed regarding the flavor of the times...definitely a pro-left book.
