The public and the media are fascinated by U.S. government secrets, real and imagined, yet very few people know how the process of obtaining formerly secret documents works. Secrecy Wars is a look inside the American secrecy system as it is accessed through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and the Privacy Act. With its perspective that of a political legal drama, this important new book will not only entertain and inform but also influence the legal, journalism, and political communities.

Wish to become a FOIA expert in the pursuit of hidden government papers? Then this is the book for you, and along the way you'll pick up invaluable information you probably didn't know about murky things classified. (When reporters sought information on JPMorgan Chase's file at the Treasury Department, regarding their collusion with Bernie Madoff, they found that the file was missing? When the Bank of England is being investigated for currency market rigging, the minutes from meetings during 2007-2008 are most conveniently missing? That's nothing compared to what files are conveniently missing from the American intelligence establishment.)
