Secrets: The CIA's War at Home  
by Angus MacKenzie (Author), David Weir (Foreword)  
Hardback book with dust jacket,

Tight and secure binding,  
This book tells three stories: the federal intelligence agencies' undercover and perhaps illegal war with the press organs of left-wing domestic political organizations, the author's efforts to track down and publish information on these programs, and the government's efforts to enforce and increase its secrecy restrictions. It is an expansion of Mackenzie's earlier Sabotaging the Dissident Press (Ctr. for Investigative Reporting, 1983), which makes the title somewhat misleading because other agencies are also involved. There is much recounting of how the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), at which Mackenzie became an expert, can be used to access information. The book ends with a list of political organizations and a sketch of the FBI's responses to their FOIA requests for information regarding FBI files on them. This story of government paranoia and heavy-handedness is at once interesting and worrisome. It complements James K. Davis's Spying on America (LJ 5/15/92) and covers some of the same ground as Athan G. Theoharis's Spying on Americans (LJ 2/1/79). The author, who died of brain cancer in 1994, taught

Origins Of History Hardcover – , 1981
by Butterfield (Author)  
Hardback book with dust jacket,

Tight and Secure binding,  A distillation of the thought and research to which Herbert Butterfield devoted the last twenty years of his life to.  

It traces how differently people understood the relevance of their past and its connection with their religion. It examines ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia; the political perceptiveness of the Hittites; the Jewish sense of God in history, of promise and fulfilment; the classical achievement of scientific history; and the unique Chinese tradition of historical writing. 

The author explains the problems of the early Christians in relating their traditions of Jesus to their life and faith and the emergence, when Christianity became the religion of the Roman Empire, of a new historical understanding.

 The book then charts the gradual growth of a sceptical approach to

Hitler's Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII Hardcover – , 1999

When Hitler’s Pope, the shocking story of Pope Pius XII that “redefined the history of the twentieth century” (The Washington Post ) was originally published, it sparked a firestorm of controversy both inside and outside the Catholic Church. Now, award-winning journalist John Cornwell has revisited this seminal work of history with a new introduction that both answers his critics and reaffirms his overall thesis that Pius XII, now scheduled to be canonized by the Vatican, weakened the Catholic Church with his endorsement of Hitler—and sealed the fate of the Jews in Europe.
An award-winning Roman Catholic journalist presents a shocking record, drawing from secret archives, of the career of Pope Pius XII, showing his long-term collaboration with the Nazis and his anti-Semitism, and discusses his continuing influence.  
This devastating account of the ecclesiastical career of Eugenio Pacelli (1876-1958), who became Pope Pius XII in 1939, is all the more powerful because British historian John Cornwell maintains throughout a measured though strongly critical tone. After World War II, murmurs of Pacelli's callous indifference to the plight of Europe's Jews began to be heard. A noted commentator on
