Review "Rather than fall into an easy rendering of law as either requiring transparency or secrecy, this volume reveals that this distinction is itself a false dichotomy. It points out the paradox that the very idea of transparency itself relies to some extent on keeping sources a secret, and treats the question of law and its relationship to secrecy with delicacy and sophistication."—James Martel, San Francisco State University

"This compelling interdisciplinary volume raises the timely question of transparency in law and governance. Sarat, Douglas, and Umphrey deliver a rich, nuanced exploration in this new collection of essays that will prove useful for students of law, politics, and humanities."—Sara Murphy, New York University
