The War on Leakers: National Security and American Democracy, from Eugene V. Debs to Edward Snowden


Manufacturer: The New Press

Product Information

"Ripped from today's headlines, Lloyd C. Gardner's latest book takes a deep dive into the previously unexamined history of national security leakers — a story that spans World War II, the Cold War, and the Vietnam era and reaches the very doorstep of our current debates over the proper scope of national security surveillance in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks. The War on Leakers joins the growing debate over surveillance and the national security state, bringing to bear the unique perspective of one of our most respected diplomatic historians. Gardner examines how national security leaks have been grappled with over nearly five decades (in often sharply contrasting ways); what the relationship of 'leaking' has been to the exercise of American power, during and after the Cold War; similarities and differences between leakers over time; and the implications of all this for how we should think about the role of leakers and democracy."

Lloyd C. Gardner. The New Press, 2016. Hardback edition.
