Blacked Out Government Secrecy in the Information Age Alasdair Roberts Maxwell School of Syracuse University Nearly forty years ago the U.S. Congress passed the landmark Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) giving the public the right to government documents. This 'right to know' has been used over the past decades to challenge overreaching Presidents and secretive government agencies. The example of transparency in government has served as an example to nations around the world spawning similar statutes in fifty-nine countries. This book examines the evolution of the move toward openness in government. It looks at how technology has aided the disclosure and dissemination of information. The author tackles the question of whether the drive for transparency has stemmed the desire for government secrecy and discusses how many governments ignore or frustrate the legal requirements for the release of key documents. Blacked Out is an important contribution during a time where profound changes in the structure of government are changing access to government documents. Relevant to effects of the current Bush administration and the war in Iraq Topic of government secrecy attracts a broad public interest Book should be of interest in UK as the new FOIA was implemented there in 2005
