Greenwald's No Place to Hide
Today is the release date of Glenn Greenwald's No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State. Like him (and Snowden) or not, the book is going to be a hot seller and is going to tell us a lot that we already are concerned about.
This is not a review of the book (I will write one once I have read the book if no one else does) but it is a review of Greenwald's approach to full disclosure. He promised to release the source documents that support the book and he has. You can download them as a PDF. He also has released the index of the book, an excerpt, notes and more.
All this information and more is available on his website. There has also been a reasonable amount of TV coverage.
From his web page:
Going beyond NSA specifics, Greenwald also takes on the establishment media, excoriating their habitual avoidance of adversarial reporting on the government and their failure to serve the interests of the people. Finally, he asks what it means both for individuals and for a nation’s political health when a government pries so invasively into the private lives of its citizens—and considers what safeguards and forms of oversight are necessary to protect democracy in the digital age. Coming at a landmark moment in American history, No Place to Hide is a fearless, incisive, and essential contribution to our understanding of the U.S. surveillance state.
