Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0406049726, Paperback)

Freedom of Information examines the relationship between law, political culture and information control, and combines a technical knowledge of English law, a detailed account of the history of political secrecy in Britain, and an informed acquaintance with the shady detail of political and administrative practice. This highly regarded text from the acclaimed Law in Context series draws on examples and developments from throughout the world. These include the Official Secrets Act 1989; the Intelligence Services Act 1994; the UK Code of Practice on Access to Information; the adoption of the open government movement in an EC context; the implications of the Matrix Churchill affair and the Scott Report; and several EC Directives and Decisions concerning data protection and access to information.
