The National Security Archive and ProQuest team up to digitize sources that reveal policy and actions surrounding privacy, security and spying in modern America
(11 November 2014, Ann Arbor, MI) In 2013, when Edward Snowden leaked classified National Security Agency (NSA) documents, he brought the world’s attention to the issues of privacy, security and global surveillance, begging questions with few simple answers. Now, researchers can go deeper into this controversial topic by exploring its history and impact through primary sources.
Digital National Security Archive’s Electronic Surveillance and the National Security Agency: From Shamrock to Snowden brings together the world’s most comprehensive, publicly available collection of materials on the subject. Each piece has been carefully gathered and selected by the staff of the National Security Archive (the Archive) – an award-winning nonprofit research institute, library and publisher of declassified documentation based at The George Washington University. The works have been digitized, supported with precision search tools and are now accessible to libraries and researchers via ProQuest.
