Seneca's De Remediis Fortuitorum and the Elizabethans...
Institute of Elizabethan Studies, 1953 - 66 pages
This eye-opening expose, the result of fifteen years of investigative work, uncovers the CIA's systematic efforts over several decades to suppress and censor information. Angus Mackenzie, an award-winning yournalist, filed and won a lawsuit against the CIA under the Freedom of Information Act, and in the process became an expert on government censorship and domestic spying. Mackenzie lays bare a complex narrative of intrigue among federal agencies and their senior staff, including the Department of Defense, the executive branch, and the CIA. From cover-ups and secrecy oaths, to scandals over leaks and exposure, to the government's often insidious attempts to monitor and control public access to information, Mackenzie tracks the evolution of a policy of suppression, repression, spying, and harassment.
