If you're interested in a satirical book about spies, community, and integration during the late 1960s-70s then my discussion of The Spook Who Sat By the Door is for you. Written by Sam Greenlee in the 60s, the book offers a lot of commentary on the self-serving nature of liberal politicians and activists, institutional racism, and the assimilation dreams of the Black bourgeoisie.
