". . . this book will be of greatest use to those engaged in these battles to pry open the doors of government agencies. There are, [Klosek] notes, many exemptions to the law that prevent access, but she does provide practical methods for citizens to use the act to protect themselves and their communities. The most dangerous aspect of what is occurring is the increasing effort to deny Americans access to government generated information with which to make an informed analysis of what is really occurring." - Bookviews by Alan Caruba
"Jacqueline Klosek provides readers with a detailed analysis of the critical importance of the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA)." - Apex Reviews
"This is an immensely sensible and insightful look at the fundamental importance of protecting our society's right to information in an age of terrorist threats. Klosek rigorously balances the threats posed by terrorists who use freedom of information laws to gain access to sensitive information against the risk of allowing a government and private industry to operate in secrecy. Human rights activists and scholars alike will appreciate the practical wisdom she offers that freedom of information is a crucial element to a society's accurate portrayal of history." (Jeff Aresty
"In her latest publication, The Right to Know: Your Guide to Using and Defending Freedom of Information Law in the United States, Jacqueline Klosek contributes a superbly researched and thought provoking analysis of the Freedom of Information Act to our national debate regarding the accessibility―and accountability―of government to its citizens. This publication is an excellent resource for 'best practices' in leveraging current laws and dealing with their limitations, and for identifying relevant government agencies and personnel." (Mary J.
