A documentary released today by Yahoo News draws upon work by Douglas Charles, associate professor of history at Penn State Greater Allegheny.
Investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff produced the documentary, "Uniquely Nasty: The U.S. Government's War on Gays" in anticipation of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. Professor Charles explained why the "war" metaphor was appropriate in regard to government actions and the consequences to individuals (see also https://news.yahoo.com/uniquely-nasty-j-edgar-hoover-fbi-war-on-gays-152550068.html).
The forthcoming book by Professor Charles focuses on the FBI's role: "Hoover?s War on Gays: Exposing the FBI?s ?Sex Deviates? Program." The book is expected to be released in September 2015.
