This volume contains articles examining freedom of information statutes, including those protecting government employees who expose official misconduct. Using United States laws as examples, the articles explore the relationship of these laws to administrative and constitutional theory in the United States. In addition, they demonstrate how varying conceptions of information illuminate the controversies in the application of these laws to the revolution in the electronic storage and retrieval of information. The articles allow the reader to speculate how the connection of these laws to liberal democratic theory explains their recent adoption in several countries and their international application.
'Local government has an immediate impact upon the lives of citizens, yet hitherto most attention on issues of transparency and openness has been directed towards central government. This clearly written, scholarly and accessible book fills a large gap in the literature and provides a welcome and timely contribution to an important area of concern.' John Greenaway, University of East Anglia, UK 'Hunt and Chapman should be commended for again bringing together experts to assess the impact of freedom of information on democratic systems of government. While focussing on British local government the book provides lessons for other systems including those in North America and elsewhere.' David L. Dillman, Abilene Christian University,Texas, USA
