Review: Government Secrecy

3 Star, Secrecy & Politics of Secrecy
Amazon Page

Susan Maret (Author, Editor)

3.0 out of 5 stars 5 for Content, ZERO for Pricing

February 25, 2011

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.
