KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the fourth title in the author's series on departments of the federal government's executive branch. His coverage here is basically the same as that he has given to the...Treasury...Interior....and State. It is an anecdotal history of the growth of the department and its functions with separate chapters for each of the special offices within it. This book of course, draws energy from the stories out of the files of the F.B.I., the Attorney General's involvement in Supreme Court cases and the espionage uncovered by the Office of Immigration. These books have the advantage of being short, single source supplements to civics courses. A list of the men who have held the post of Attorney General from the Justice Department's inception in 1789 is provided.
