At the suggestion of a few of my colleagues, I’ll be blogging the research for my new book, The Wiretappers: An Intercepted American History, in the “Eavesdrop” section of this website. Since my ideas on the subject seem to be changing so rapidly–and since wiretapping seems to be in the news so often–I wanted to be able to keep track of the project’s evolution in a systematic way. I also wanted to force myself to write more often. Thus: a blog. Over the course of the next few years, I’ll be contributing occasional posts about books that I read, materials that I find, and items in the news that merit the long view of history. Stay tuned for more.
