"The cumulative effect is overwhelming. Eleanor Roosevelt was right: Hoover’s FBI was an American gestapo." —Newsweek Shocking, grim, frightening, Curt Gentry’s masterful portrait of America’s top policeman is a unique political biography. From more than 300 interviews and over 100,000 pages of previously classified documents, Gentry reveals exactly how a paranoid director created the fraudulent myth of an invincible, incorruptible FBI. For almost fifty years, Hoover held virtually unchecked public power, manipulating every president from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Richard Nixon. He kept extensive blackmail files and used illegal wiretaps and hidden microphones to destroy anyone who opposed him. The book reveals how Hoover helped create McCarthyism, blackmailed the Kennedy brothers, and influenced the Supreme Court; how he retarded the civil rights movement and forged connections with mobsters; as well as insight into the Watergate scandal and what part he played in the investigations of President John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.

This Book contains shocking revelations, on how third world developing countries become subservient to economically powerful giants, even having to cover-up major frauds perpetrated on sovereign States and its impoverished people. Author discovers fraud in the construction of Colombo Hilton Hotel, by Japanese companies, Mitsui & Co. Ltd., Taisei Corporation, and Architects, Kanko Kikaku Sekkeisha Yozo Shibata & Associates, with technical assistance from Hilton International USA. Author successfully establishes a strong case of fraud before the highest judiciary, with Japanese unable to answer Interrogatories ordered by Court. Attorney Generals and Secretaries of Finance, at the behest of successive Presidents of the country, require such fraud to be settled, without prosecution. Consequently Author insists and obtains write-offs of US $ 207 million in June 1995 on fraudulent claims of the Japanese on State Guarantees. Author persists on several conditions, which the Government agrees, including an undertaking by the State to take legal action against Members of Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) for dereliction of duties on inaction on such fraud in a public company, notwithstanding Author’s complaints. This condition affected Justice Minister, subsequently Minister of External Affairs, as a former SEC Member, resulting in him precipitating perverse controversies, causing colossal loss to the company and the State, frustrating the settlement, resulting in the Author suing him, and a courageous Justice ruling in Author’s favour in striking-out the Answer of his own Minister, for duplicitous stances; the courageous Justice later being gunned down by a drug cartel. Author in his crusade, risking his life, to combat corruption at highest echelons of society, faces malicious capricious actions, with vexatious litigations, resulting in him applying to Court to wind-up the company, and the Government arbitrarily unilaterally enacting law to acquire the company !

With a foreword by Senator John McCain. In 1967, U.S. Air Force fighter pilot James Shively was shot down over North Vietnam. After ejecting from his F-105 Thunderchief aircraft, he landed in a rice paddy and was captured by the North Vietnamese Army. For the next six years, Shively endured brutal treatment at the hands of the enemy in Hanoi prison camps. Back home his girlfriend moved on and married another man. Bound in iron stocks at the Hanoi Hilton, unable to get home to his loved ones, Shively contemplated suicide. Yet somehow he found hope and the will to survive--and he became determined to help his fellow POWs. In a newspaper interview several years after his release, Shively said, "I had the opportunity to be captured, the opportunity to be interrogated, the opportunity to be tortured and the experience of answering questions under torture. It was an extremely humiliating experience. I felt sorry for myself. But I learned the hard way life isn't fair. Life is only what you make of it." Written by Shively's stepdaughter Amy Hawk--whose mother Nancy ultimately reunited with and married Shively in a triumphant love story--and based on extensive audio recordings and Shively's own journals, Six Years in the Hanoi Hilton is a haunting, riveting portrayal of life as an American prisoner of war trapped on the other side of the world.
