The Eagle Has Eyes : The FBI Surveillance of César Estrada Chávez of the United Farm Workers Union of America, 1965-1975
by José Angel Gutiérrez




Overview -
This book is the first of its kind to bring transparency to the FBI's attempts to destroy the incipient Chicano Movement of the 1960s. While the activities of the deep state are current research topics, this has not always been the case. The role of the U.S. government in suppressing marginalized racial and ethnic minorities began to be documented with the advent of the Freedom of Information Act and most recently by disclosures of whistle blowers. This book utilizes declassified files from the FBI to investigate the agency's role in thwarting Cesar E. Chavez's efforts to build a labor union for farm workers and documents the roles of the FBI, California state police, and local police in assisting those who opposed Chavez. Ultimately, The Eagle Has Eyes is a must-read for academics and activists alike.
