Once the Beatles split up, John Lennon found time to explore his strong political activist side. Moving to New York City, he and wife Yoko Ono befriended a host of activists and writers with a variety of agendas, encouraging and supporting them to such an extent that the FBI took notice. What followed was an escalating, and often bizarre, series of harassments – apartment bugging, deportation orders, attempted declaration of the Lennons' "insanity," concert embargoes, a set-up pot bust, harassment of friends like David Bowie, culminating, the authors argue, in the Beatle's death. The strange and sinister story of the U.S. government's secret war on the Lennons is dramatically told in this book based on recently released documents from the FBI's own archives. Included are photographs as well as new information from Lennon's music peers and fellow activists.
