Author Seth Rosenfeld, former investigative reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle and San Francisco Examiner, talked about his book, Subversives: The FBI’s War on Student Radicals, and Reagan’s Rise to Power. In his book, he reports on the FBI’s covert actions at the University of California, Berkeley in the 1960s. He argues that the J. Edgar Hoover-led Agency attempted to weaken activist student groups, including the Free Speech Movement (FSM). Mr. Rosenfeld’s research draws upon 250,000 pages from the Agency’s files. close
