Secret Service: The Hidden History of an Enigmatic Agency
Philip H. Melanson (au); Peter F. Stevens (au). Explosive & revealing, this is the first comprehensive history of one of our government’s most shrouded agencies. From its inception in 1865 as the nation’s police against counterfeiting to the official assignment of protecting the president to the post 9/11 challenges of protecting the targets of terrorists, Melanson presents the agency’s history & examines its role today. Through rigorous research & interviews, the authors pull the veil off a highly visible yet tight-lipped federal agency. They reveal the pervasive, often detrimental influence that politics exerts on the Service. They also analyze how the agency will respond to threats, such as: nerve gas, dirty bombs, biological agents, & shoulder-held missiles. Illustrations.
