THE DECLASSIFICATION ENGINE What History Reveals About America's Top Secrets

by | Read by Chris Henry Coffey

History • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Chris Henry Coffey brings conviction and sense of purpose to a history of government document keeping that could not be more timely. The billions spent to store and protect the unmanageable accumulation of classified documents have not prevented repeated and damaging leaks. Just as damaging has been the loss of government openness and accountability, virtues highly prized in American government before WWII. The arguments in this work can be a bit repetitive, but many of the revelations are persuasive, and Coffey maintains a brisk pace and a clear purpose. His frank, forceful delivery underscores a narrative that is exceedingly frank and critical of a flawed system badly badly in need of reform.
