Troubling Transparency is a collection of essays written by jurists, sociologists, and journalists. The fourteen contributions to this volume were also presentations to the Columbia School of Journalism 2016 conference, which the co-editors, Michael Schudson and David Pozen also co-organized, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the US Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The essays are organized into four parts: 1) the history and conceptual foundations of the statute, 2) the impact FOIA has on the media, 3) tactics in transparency, and 4) the impact FOIA has had globally.
