About the Book
"From the moment I discovered Greg Mitchell's amazing WikiLeaks blog it has become indispensable. 'The Age of WikiLeaks' follows in the footsteps of his brilliant books on nuclear threat, the Iraq war, the media and American politics." ----- DANIEL ELLSBERG
'Highly recommended." -----DON VAN NATTA, Jr., investigative reporter, The New York Times
This acclaimed book and e-book charts the incredible rise of WikiLeaks, and its political and media impact, from April 2010 to February 2011 -- and what it means for the future -- written by award-winning author Greg Mitchell. His WikiLeaks blog at The Nation has gained a vast worldwide audience and praise from Bill Moyers and many others.
Includes gripping, revelatory chapters on every major WikiLeaks release of the past year, from Iraq and Afghanistan war logs to the bombshell State Department cables, right up to the Egypt revolt. Plus: current controversies, media failures, the Bradley Manning case, and what lies ahead in the wide new world of leaking.
