Covering the training and work of Special Agents, the operations of the Laboratory and the Identification Division but not the activities of the director and other high-level administrators, [FBI] is a glorification of the bureau. There is no mention of past illegal FBI maneuvers nor of the controversies that have surrounded the agency, and the inclusion of current "Ten Most-Wanted Criminals" posters is useless since these will quickly become out of date. (p. 46)
