Description

Governments and institutions hold secrets you are entitled by law to know. But how do you exercise your right? In this definitive guide, you will learn how to gain access to information and how to pry loose records governments and institutions would prefer not to release. This book walks you through the maze and over the obstacles that stand in the way of your right to know. In the process you will learn more about how your tax dollars are spent and how key decisions and events were shaped. Perhaps most importantly, you'll learn how to do it all affordably and efficiently.
