J. Edgar Hoover: The Man in His Time

Front Cover
Arlington House, 1973 - Biography & Autobiography - 384 pages
The first objective biography about the man whose name is synonymous with the FBI. Generally sympathetic but not uncritical, veteran newsman Ralph de Toledano unveils Hoover's life from birth to death, showing how he took a corrupt political instrument and made it into the greatest investigative organization in the world -- and, in his last years, allowed some rigidity to creep in.
