5 for Content, ZERO for Pricing
This is an important work recommended by Berto Jongman as well as myself, but the pricing is utterly outrageous. The authors should post a copy of this work free on the Internet since the publisher has made the book unaffordable by most.
Here are some reasonably priced books on Secrecy that I recommend instead. I can not buy this book, despite its important content, for lack of funds.
Secrecy: The American Experience
Nation of Secrets: The Threat to Democracy and the American Way of Life
WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy
Rule by Secrecy: The Hidden History That Connects the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, and the Great Pyramids
The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic (The American Empire Project)
Secrecy & Privilege: Rise of the Bush Dynasty from Watergate to Iraq
Blacked Out: Government Secrecy in the Information Age
Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers
The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers
My own book, free online as well as here at Amazon, remains pertinent:
On Intelligence: Spies and Secrecy in an Open World
Read much more about secrecy versus openness at Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog. I have testified to the various commissions including the Moynihan Commission, I know the value of this book, and regret it is unaffordable.
