About This Book

The Right to Know explains both why openness serves the public interest and how citizens are succeeding in extracting information from powerful institutions. It distils the lessons of many nations' experience and provides careful analysis of transparency's impact on governance, business regulation, environmental protection, and national security. It provides a balanced account of the debate over secrecy, as well as examples of legitimate instances in which secrecy may be better than disclosure. Indexed.
