New Book Analyzes FBI’s Response to Berkeley in 1960s

 Using tens of thousands of pages of unreleased FBI files, investigative journalist Seth Rosenfeld wrote a book, “Subversives,” about the agency’s handling of the Berkeley student movement in the 1960s, the Daily Beast reports.

The book reveals that top FBI officials went to great lengths to destroy the movement because they believed it posed a serious threat to America.

Rosenfeld also paints an unflattering portrait of Ronald Reagan, who was an FBI investigator and informant.

The FBI records took three decades and four lawsuits to obtain, the Daily Beast reported.
