This book is the first of its kind to provide an in-depth treatment of the law of unauthorised disclosures in the United Kingdom.

Drawing upon extensive data obtained using freedom of information as a methodology and examples from comparative jurisdictions, the book considers the position of civil servants, employees of the security and intelligence services and service personnel in the armed forces.

It considers the protections available, the consequences of leaking and a full assessment of the authorised alternatives.
