Book Buzz: How Secrets Undermine Democracy

Ted Gup's Nation of Secrets, released earlier this month by Doubleday, is creating a buzz in some significant circles. From the reports we've seen, the book explains the corrosive effects of government secrecy on American democracy.

The book's subtitle makes Gup's message clear: "The Threat to Democracy and the American Way of Life."

James Fallows, a writer for The Atlantic Monthly, calls the book "an eye-opening and very important book." Writer Kevin Phillips also has good things to say about the book.

Gup, a former reporter at the Washington Post and Time, now teaches journalism in Ohio. Find out more by checking out this link:
