A New York Times–bestselling author’s revealing, “important” biography of the longtime FBI director (The Philadelphia Inquirer). No one exemplified paranoia and secrecy at the heart of American power better than J. Edgar Hoover, the original director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. For this consummate biography, renowned investigative journalist Anthony Summers interviewed more than eight hundred witnesses and pored through thousands of documents to get at the truth about the man who headed the FBI for fifty years, persecuted political enemies, blackmailed politicians, and lived his own surprising secret life. Ultimately, Summers paints a portrait of a fatally flawed individual who should never have held such power, and for so long.

Was J. Edgar Hoover a homosexual? And did organized-crime leaders, knowing this, blackmail the FBI director into leaving them alone? These charges won almost instant popular acceptance when they were aired in a sensational biography of Hoover in 1993. But Athan Theoharis, the foremost authority on Hoover and the FBI, here shows that the accusations are spurious and not nearly as intriguing as Hoover's real attitudes toward sex and organized crime. Theoharis takes apart the argument for Hoover's homosexuality, then goes on to paint a chilling portrait of a moralistic bureaucrat who would not hesitate to use sex-related information against his political enemies when it could not be traced to FBI investigations. Theoharis explains why the FBI's ineffectiveness in pursuing organized-crime leaders stemmed from the same political priorities that gave Hoover broad authority during the cold war years to use illegal investigative techniques and to focus on political activities. Punctuating his narrative with case materials from the FBI's secret files on presidential candidates, senators, congressmen, artists and writers, college presidents, and others Theoharis unravels the brilliantly devious means that Hoover used to accomplish his political ends. And he shows how they contributed to a culture of lawlessness within the FBI itself."

Marilyn, JFK, Hoover: Three provocative works of investigative journalism by a New York Times–bestselling author and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. New York Times–bestselling author Anthony Summers was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2012 for his acclaimed account of the 9/11 attacks, The Eleventh Day. In these three exposés, Summers uncovers the truth behind the myth-making, cover-ups, and lies surrounding the death of Marilyn Monroe, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the career of infamous FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Goddess: In this “remarkable” New York Times–bestselling biography of the iconic star’s brief life and tragic end, Summers establishes, after years of rumors, that President Kennedy and his brother Robert were both intimately involved with Monroe in life—and in covering up the circumstances of her death (The New York Times). “Convincing evidence of a crude but effective cover-up which was designed to protect Robert Kennedy.” —The Times Literary Supplement Not in Your Lifetime: Updated fifty years after the JFK assassination, Summers’s extensively researched account is comprehensive and candid, shedding new light on Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby in particular, providing “the closest we have to that literary chimera, a definitive work on the events in Dallas” (The Boston Globe). “Fresh and important . . . We rush on through [Summers’s] narrative as if we were reading an artful thriller.” —The New York Times “An awesome work, with the power of a plea as from Zola for justice.” —Los Angeles Times Official and Confidential: This “enthralling” New York Times–bestselling portrait of J. Edgar Hoover plumbs the depths of a man who possessed—and abused—enormous power as the director of the FBI for fifty years, persecuting political enemies, blackmailing politicians, and living his own surprising secret life, haunted by paranoia (Paul Theroux). “An important book that should give us all pause, especially policy makers.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer “Summers’ book is not just a history of a single hero-sized hypocrite, it is a history of a vast national delusion.” —The Spectator

Die Handlung des Romans schwingt in großen Bögen von den 50er Jahren in die heutige Zeit und zurück, fahrt von New York durch die Weiten Amerikas bis in die Wüste Arizonas. Nick Shay, der eine Schuld aus seiner Jugend in sich trägt, arbeitet und lebt mit seiner Familie in Arizona. In der Wüste von Arizona bemalt Klara Sax, die leidenschaftlich für ihre Unabhängigkeit von Familie und Konventionen gekämpft hat, den Abfall der Geschichte, ausrangierte B-52 Bomber, und schafft ein gigantisches Kunstobjekt. In New York, in der Bronx, hatten Nick und Klara einst eine kurze, leidenschaftliche Affäre. Ihre Lebensläufe, ihre Erinnerungen verbinden sich mit einer Vielzahl von unvergeßlichen Figuren, fiktiven und historischen, mit politischen, sportlichen und künstlerischen Ereignissen und mit einem Baseball, der 1951 bei einem berühmten Spiel geschlagen wurde, als zum gleichen Zeitpunkt die Sowjetunion ihre erste Atombombe zündete. Kunstvoll komponiert, in einer lebendigen, originellen und facettenreichen Sprache geschrieben, ist Unterwelt ein unvergleichlicher Roman, ein Bild Amerikas, ein Bild unserer Zeit und unserer Welt. In seinem großen Roman Unterwelt beschwört Don DeLillo ein faszinierendes Panorama der letzten Hälfte dieses Jahrhunderts. Unsere Alltagswelt, Kunst, Sport und Politik, die alles bestimmende Bilderflut von der Werbung bis zum Internet spiegeln sich im Leben der Figuren, in deren Mittelpunkt Nick Shay, Manager in einer Müllentsorgungsfirma, und Klara Sax, eine Konzeptkünstlerin, stehen.

New York Times Bestseller: The definitive biography based on over six hundred interviews with people who knew Marilyn Monroe both professionally and intimately. Marilyn Monroe, born in obscurity and deprivation, became an actress and legend of the twentieth century, romantically linked to famous men from Joe DiMaggio to Arthur Miller to John F. Kennedy. But her tragic death at a young age, under suspicious circumstances, left behind a mystery that remains unsolved to this day. Anthony Summers interviewed more than six hundred people, laying bare the truths—sometimes funny, often sad—about this brilliant, troubled woman. The first to gain access to the files of Monroe’s last psychiatrist, Summers uses the documents to explain her tangled psyche and her dangerous addiction to medications. He establishes, after years of mere rumor, that President Kennedy and his brother Robert were both intimately involved with Monroe in life—and in covering up the circumstances of her death. Written by a Pulitzer Prize nominee who has authored works on JFK, J. Edgar Hoover, and the 9/11 attacks, this investigation of an iconic star’s brief life and early death is “remarkable. . . . The ghost of Marilyn Monroe cries out in these pages” (The New York Times).

It is impossible to live the kind of life that John Fitzgerald Kennedy lived – one of privilege, power, and pain – and not acquire a few enemies along the way. Yet few figures in American history have as oddly conflicted relationships with their political foes as did our 35th President. Historian Thomas Whalen’s book sheds light on each of Kennedy’s enemies, detailing the ways in which Kennedy’s more fractious relationships evolved over time, affected his Presidency, and his personal life.

Documents uncovered from the late FBI director's secret files reveal for the first time the shocking extent of FBI activities in collecting and using derogatory information about prominent Americans and political groups. Historian Athan Theoharis charges that Hoover was an "indirect blackmailer," exploiting the FBI's resources to serve the political interests of the White House and to advance his own political and moral agenda. None of the documents in five separate secret files was intended ever to be disclosed; Mr. Theoharis procured them after intensive research in FBI files using the Freedom of Information Act. The memoranda, letters, telephone transcriptions, and other materials printed here detail a wide range of excesses and include Hoover's providing information about political adversaries to the Johnson and Nixon White Houses; John F. Kennedy's affair with Washington gossip columnist Inga Arvad; FBI monitoring of Supreme Court clerks and staff; the tracking of Adlai Stevenson by the FBI as a homosexual; Hoover's interest in the drinking and sexual habits of congressmen; an anonymous letter attacking Martin Luther King, Jr., composed and sent to Dr. King by the FBI; and much more. Mr. Theoharis describes Hoover's ingenious Do Not File system as well as the FBI's Sex Deviate program and Obscene File.
