Synopsis

Louis Freeh led the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 1993 to 2001, through some of the most tumultuous times in its long history. This is the story of a life in law enforcement, and of one man’s determined struggle to strengthen and reform the FBI while ensuring its freedom from political interference.

Bill Clinton called Freeh a “law enforcement legend” when he nominated him as FBI Director. The good feelings would not last.

Going toe-to-toe with his boss during the scandal-plagued ‘90s, Freeh fought hard to defend his agency from political interference and to protect America from the growing threat of international terrorism. When Clinton later called that appointment the worst one he had made as president, Freeh considered it “a badge of honor.”

This is Freeh’s entire story, from his Catholic upbringing in New Jersey to law school, the FBI training academy, his career as a US District attorney and as a federal judge, and finally his eight years as the nation’s top cop.


故事梗概

1993年到2001年可说是联邦调查局自成立后最为忙乱的几年,路易斯·J·弗里就在这短时间里担任联邦调查局局长。本书中讲述弗里如何认真执法、努力在避免不受政治影响的情况下对联邦调查局进行改革的事迹。





比尔·克林顿在提名弗里为联邦调查局局长的时候称他为“执法传奇人物”。但是这种好的感觉没能一直持续下去。

在丑闻泛滥的九十年代,弗里没有屈从他的上司,而是拼命保护联邦调查局不受政治侵扰,保护美国不受国际恐怖主义的袭击。当克林顿后来称任命弗里为局长是他在职期间最大的任命错误时,弗里却说这句话简直就是奖给他的“荣誉勋章”。





本书讲述了弗里的大半生,从他在新泽西天主教家庭的童年到进入法律学校、进入联邦调查局训练学院、当选美国检查官和联邦审判员、到最终成为美国最高警察机关的领导,并任职八年。




  Comment

This is the definitive account of American law enforcement in the run-up to September 11. Freeh is clear-eyed, frank, the ultimate realist, and he offers resolute vision for the struggles ahead.
评价

本书对包括911以及之前的美国执法情况作了权威的论述。弗里是一位头脑清晰,坦诚直率的现实主义者,非常具有前瞻性。
