Reviews

Praise for The War on Leakers:
"[An] engaging and thoroughly researched investigation."
--Booklist

"[The War on Leakers is] well-written and tightly-argued. . . A worthwhile contribution to our ongoing national debate about the balance between national security and privacy and about the line between sedition and dissent."
--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Killing Machine:
"Gardner's treatment of this brave new mode of presidential war-making is admirably comprehensive."
--Bookforum

"Gardner delivers an engrossing blow-by-blow account of a decade of fierce debates and painful events that offer excruciating parallels with the Vietnam War."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Three Kings
"Gardner's meticulous review and perceptive analysis provides a rich background for understanding what is unfolding today, and is likely to persist."
--Noam Chomsky
