Robins reveals assaults on freedom of expression began before J. Edgar Hoover joined the Justice Department & made his name synonymous with that of the FBI for over 40 years.
The war carried over into the 80s, when librarians, as part of a Library Awareness Program, were recruited to spy on readers. Drawing on nearly 150 files released under the Freedom of Information Act, her narrative offers documentary evidence about the hounding & intimidation of writers ranging from John Reed to Allen Ginsberg, from Edna St Vincent Millay to James Baldwin, & from Walter Winchell to Robert Lowell-a virtual Who's Who of American letters. Alien Ink is the story of hidden agendas & powers, & contains many surprises-among them, that Hoover, known for rightist sympathies, not only inhibited left-wing expression, but harassed right-wingers as well.
Robins shows how the FBI combed papers, books, plays, films & radio broadcasts for "alien ink"-anything "anti-American" or "anti-FBI"-& describes how those incriminated endured phone taps, mail searches & character assassinations. She reveals the pressure tactics FBI agents employed to make them toe the line, as well as the astounding criminal lengths (including extortion & entrapment) that the FBI went to in order to "get something" on those writers who wouldn't capitulate. She explains the FBI's attitude toward the group of writers it considered the most threatening: journalists.
Confirming her findings are dozens of interviews-dramatic dialogs-with living writers & others of all ideologies, who bear witness to the FBI's investigative crusade.
