Blacked Out: Government Secrecy in the Information Age: August eBook of the Month

Updated on: Jul 27, 2006 @ 8:41:00 am

Recent revelations about domestic surveillance programs have spotlighted the issue of what governments can and cannot do to keep secrets. The August eBook of the Month, Blacked Out: Government Secrecy in the Information Age (Cambridge University Press, April 2006), directly addresses the issue of government transparency during this age of global terrorism threats.
Written by Alasdair Roberts, a prominent lawyer, public policy expert, and nternational authority on transparency in government, Blacked Out: Government Secrecy in the Information Age offers a comprehensive look at the global efforts to restrict secrecy and provides readers with a clearly written guide to those areas where the battle is most intense.
During month of August, NetLibrary and Cambridge University Press make the eBook of the Month freely available, although it has not yet been received and added to the UCF collection.
Take a look by Blacked Out: Government Secrecy in the Information Age byclicking on "N" and then NetLibrary at the UCF Libraries Articles and Databases list at http://www.library.ucf.edu/Databases/
