If you’re interested in leaks, surveillance or FOI, three book reviews I wrote over the last two months on the Help Me Investigate blog recently might interest you:
- This Machine Kills Secrets deals with the history of leaks but includes many details about surveillance and security. I reviewed it here.
- Secret Manoeuvres in the Dark looks at how private companies and police have used infiltration, surveillance, and fake online personas to develop counterstrategies against campaigners which have implications for journalists. I reviewed it here.
- FOIA Without the Lawyer is a guide to using the Freedom of Information Act in the UK – particularly anticipating problems and challenging refusals. I reviewed it here.
