William Turner (Hoover's FBI), a journalist and former FBI agent who has devoted his attention to U.S. domestic intelligence affairs for 50 years, revisits his biggest stories in Rearview Mirror: Looking Back at the FBI, the CIA and Other Tails, with a foreword by Oliver Stone. After 10 years in ""the dark alleys of the intelligence agency underworld,"" says Turner, ""I decided to decamp... on my own terms, petitioning for a congressional probe of Hoover's administration."" Afterwards he became a senior editor at Ramparts magazine. His accounts of ""The Untimely Death of RFK,"" ""The Stealth War Against Cuba,"" ""The FBI Propaganda Machine"" and more obscure events are as riveting now as decades ago. Lush, sometimes sensational conspiracy theories abound in this compelling collection. B&w photos not seen by PW.
