A Freedom of Information Day Reading List from the New York Public Library

From a NYPL Blog Post by Peter Bengston, Central Collection Development

The recent activities of Wikileaks and Julian Assange have once again reignited the controversy of the degree to which the public has a right to unfettered access to government information. This year, Freedom of Information Day is being observed nationally on March 16.

The list contains 11 titles with direct links to bib records via the NYPL catalog.
You can find libraries in your area that have these books using WorldCat.org.
