About the book:

Why has the government of the most powerful democracy in the world found it necessary to mislead its own people. The Politics of Lying is the first book to show how government deception, official secrecy, and misuse of power have caused erosion of confidence between the people and their government - perhaps the single most important political development in America in recent years. This book documents the way government deception is now supported by official secrecy, a vast public relations machine, and increasing pressures on the press. It reveals the workings of the secrecy system in unprecedented detail and discloses classifications that even Congress did not know existed.
