Description
From the bloody Civil War draft riots to the activities of German and Soviet spies in the 20th century, and more recent attacks by Islamic radicals, New York City has long been a breeding ground for spies, terrorists, and other threats to the nation as well as to the city itself. Thomas Reppetto, president of the Citizens Crime Commission of New York City from 1979 to 2005, offers this remarkable history of domestic security operations in the city, which has often been the proving ground for strategies and tactics to protect citizens nationwide.

"A fascinating look at how the greatest law enforcement agency in the United States dealt with saboteurs, bombers, and terrorists long before there was an FBI or CIA. The book is chock full of characters and incidents that jump off the page, providing an interesting and entertaining historical narrative. This is an invaluable contribution."óJohn Timoney
