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.
