Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Tim Weiner’s new book, “Enemies: A History of the F.B.I.,” is an outstanding piece of work, even-handed, exhaustively researched, smoothly written and thematically timely."

The New York Times

"A fascinating account of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's counterespionage snooping over the past century....A very good read."

The Wall Street Journal
