Description

In The Burglary, the identities of the people who burglarized the Media, PA, FBI office the night of March 8, 1971, are revealed for the first time. Though the significance of this historic burglary often had been noted by scholars in histories of the bureau and biographies of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, the identities of the people who called themselves the Citizens Commission to Investigate the FBI, as well as the full impact of this historic act of resistance, were not known until The Burglary was published. The burglars had avoided discovery by agents throughout the bureau's five-year investigation of the crime and had remained silent for forty-three years. They had promised each other they would take the secret of the burglary to their graves.
