The Puzzle Palace: A Report on America’s Most Secret AgencyRead about the other books on the list.
by James Bamford
More than 30 years before government contractor Edward J. Snowden made international headlines with his disclosures about the National Security Agency, Bamford blew the lid of the nation’s most secretive agency with his 1982 book, the first comprehensive study of the NSA and a must-read for anyone concerned about its sweeping operations. As Bamford presciently wrote, “Like an ever-widening sinkhole, NSA’s surveillance technology will continue to expand, quietly pulling in more and more communications and gradually eliminating more and more privacy.”
The Puzzle Palace is one of Dan Brown's six favorite books.
