Description
Montgomery (U. of Colorado at Boulder) describes the Bush administration's campaign, largely spearheaded by Vice President Dick Cheney, to roll back the laws passed since the 1960s with the intention of guaranteeing transparent and accountable government. In separate chapters, he offers detailed accounts of the administration's actions in regard to undermining the Freedom of Information Act, the Presidential Records Act, the statutory powers of the Governmental Accountability Office, the Federal Advisory Committee act, and the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act.
