Secrecy: The American Experience by Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Richard Gid Powers

In this vitally important book, Senator Moynihan presents an eloquent and fascinating account of the development of secrecy as a mode of regulation in American government since World War I -- how it was born, how world events shaped it, how it has adversely affected momentous political decisions and events, and how it has eluded efforts to curtail or extend it. Moynihan argues that it is time to dismantle the excesses of government secrecy and share information with our citizens and with the world. Analysis, far more than secrecy, is the key to national security.
