Defining Documents in American History: Secrets, Leaks, and Scandals (1797-2017)

$ 295.00

The tension between openness and transparency with the need to keep information secure and out of the hands of an enemy has been at the heart of some of the most riveting episodes in American history. Political scandals such as the Red Scare and the Pumpkin Papers; Nixon and Watergate; Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton; and Russian Interference in U.S. elections, have captured the attention of both the American public and the global audience, as secrets and leaks fuel speculation and often result in dramatic actions from impeachment to convictions.
