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: www.nationofsecrets.com.
