Editors Note 1 Providing a rich picture of past and present undercover work, and drawing on unpublished documents and interviews with the FBI and local police, this penetrating study examines the variety of undercover operations and the ethical issues and empirical assumptions raised when the state officially sanctions deception and trickery and allows its agents to participate in crime.
Editors Note 2 Examines the current use of undercover police officers, discusses its implications about American society, and describes how modern undercover operations have changed from those of the past
