Historians’ access to government documents increasingly difficult

A report by the Organization of American Historians OAH Committee on Academic Freedom notes that “the last two presidential administrations have made historians” access to government documents increasingly difficult.” It also notes “direct efforts by the federal administration and by foundations and web sites that support it to shape the content of teaching and research in directions favorable to its policies.”
