Salon.com founder David Talbot has explored the relationship between power and secrecy throughout his career. He discusses his book The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government in conjunction with the exhibition Chasing Justice.
Kirkus Reviews called Dave Talbot’s The Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA and the Rise of America's Secret Government, “a frightening biography of power, manipulation and outright treason,” encouraging “all engaged American citizens [to] read this book and have their eyes opened.” Talbot is also the author of the national bestseller, Season of the Witch, which was selected by the San Francisco Public Library for this year's One City, One Book campaign. He is also the author of the New York Times bestseller, Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years. Talbot is the founder and former editor-in-chief of Salon, and has been hailed as “pioneer of web journalism” by the New York Times.
