Summary "Modern transparency dates to the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s--well before the Internet. Michael Schudson shows how the "right to know" has defined a new era for democracy--less focus on parties and elections, more pluralism and more players, year-round monitoring of government, and a blurring line between politics and society, public and private."--Provided by publisher.
Contents A cultural right to know -- Origins of the Freedom of Information Act -- The consumer's right to be informed -- Opening up Congress -- The media's presence -- "To let people know in time" -- Transparency in a transformed democracy -- Disclosure and its discontents.
