Editorial Reviews

Review

“These essays point to the need to put in place now, while we are still somewhat rational on the subject, real standards, tests, and consequences that will sufficiently reward the right kinds of disclosures about our national intelligence system, while deterring the wrong kinds.” ―Anne Richardson, Los Angeles Review of Books

“Readers interested in the legal, political, and journalistic ramifications of national security leaks, including students in these areas, will find these essays accessible and discover much to consider in them.” ―Amanda Mastrull, Library Journal

Format: Hardcover
The writing and publication of this seminal book, just at the time when Congress is debating changes to the Patriot Act, political figures are commenting on Snowden’s revelations, and the public is outraged over the loss of privacy, shows impeccable timing. Reading it was a civics lesson on the relationships between the branches of our government: legislative, executive, judicial and the importance of the press. It should be required reading in colleges.

I really found this collection of essays fascinating. Each had cogent arguments and well crafted points. I had recently watched the Oscar Winning Documentary which made this even more interesting as I had just that little bit of extra background on the players. I think I would recommend this to several of our book discussion groups, as I certainly wanted to talk about the opinions and facts raised in these essays.

Well informed and thoughtful opinions that assisted my understanding of the nuances in this case. I found myself underlining and highlighting many more passages and facts than is my custom. Meaty. I highly recommend as it is also very readable.

Excellent articles. Good information on a person who hasn't been covered as well as one would think in the media. Just what we needed for an assigned school research project.
