About the Author

GLENN GREENWALD is the author of several best sellers, including How Would a Patriot Act? and With Liberty and Justice for Some. Acclaimed as one of the 25 most influential political commentators by The Atlantic and one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy for 2013, Greenwald is a former constitutional law and civil rights attorney. He was a columnist for The Guardian until October, 2013, and is now building a new media organization. He is a frequent guest on CNN, MSNBC and various other television and radio outlets. His NSA reporting in 2013 has won numerous awards, including the top investigative journalism award for the 2013 Online Journalism Association, the Esso Award for Excellence in Reporting (the Brazilian equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize), and the 2013 Pioneer Award from Electronic Frontier Foundation. He is also the recipient of the first annual I.F. Stone Award for Independent Journalism in 2009 and the 2010 Online Journalism Association Award for his investigative work on the arrest and detention of Bradley Manning. He is a frequent guest lecturer on college campuses and his work has appeared in many newspapers and political news magazines, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The American Conservative.

Format: Hardcover
This is a generally well written book, with not too much of the author's bias intruding into his analysis.

That being said, I find that Greenwald tends to demonize his opponents without being able to sympathetically articulate their position and fears.

In terms of content, Greenwald's coverage of Snowden's documents, reveals massive government corruption and misleading statements, if not outright lying, to the public by the so called leaders of the free world. For that alone, this book is a gem and I am grateful for the exposure of these transgressions.

However, Greenwald has an annoying tendency to try to force the reader to adopt his assessment of Snowden, as an altruistic do gooder for free speech, rather than letting the reader come to that conclusion on their own.

In a similar light he paints the government agencies' attempts to lessen the damage from these leaks (unknown as to what extent at the time) as mean and vindictive. It seems that Greenwald lives in a world where "journalists" would never leak military secrets (e.g. technology secrets that the Chinese or Russians might want) or lists of operatives in foreign countries (whose lives' may be henceforth in jeopardy). If the government knows there is a major leak of material, but does not know exactly what it involves, does it not make sense that they would do everything within their power to find out what just might be leaked in order that operatives and their contacts who lives' would be endangered could be extracted where possible? It's actually what I would expect government agencies to do, act so as to protect lives at risk, even if at the core the government is also trying to hide its wrong doing on various fronts.

I usually find non-fiction to be dry and a bit of a slog to get through. Not this. Fantastically entertaining, extraordinarily well written. However you feel about the issue, you have to admit that this is a good read.

A fascinating inside story of how the Guardian & Greenwald exposed what other newspapers were afraid to touch. An indictment of the NSA, the Obama gov't ( the audacity of (no) change) and the press. Each is treated with equal contempt. Kerry has told Snowden to 'faceup like a man' - Some1 might suggest the same of him and his ... The China spy syndrome has been rightfully condemned but it is pretty difficult to tell the difference here except for the flag. The NSA has been caught lying through their teeth but that apparently is OK, as Americans have not been targeted (so they say). As for the rest of us, well, The USA has another black eye . German Chancellor Merkel is right to be wary. An excellent reference book that describes the litany of invasive programs by both the 'bad' and 'good' guys is Black Code. The 2 books wrk well together. It is clear that the authorities now have the capability of putting together an in depth profile of just about any1 they choose and can, presumably, go back years to put together the pieces. Welcome to the brave new world of 1984 .....

Really, quite informative for me. Human rights are so important to all people. It's really amazing what governments can do if people just aren't vigilant. We all have responsibility and the government is supposed to be accountable and transparent.
If it is supposed to be about the 9/11 attack then when the airplane came into sight of the Trade Towers that fateful day, they should have had the Defence Airplanes fly to protect themselves. Everybody was sitting and waiting, I just hated that. They didn't have an automatic defence. There seems to be some problem with the government to me. In the Soviet Union, they have those defence planes up in that restricted air space very fast, when they are needed. I think I remember China's defense too, the same.
So Edward Snowdon is branded as a criminal. In God we trust and justice needs protection. We are all subject if it is otherwise. This book is important in that respect, I think.

Greenwald writes well and explains his motivations and involvement in Edward Snowden's NSA leaks.

Greenwald's principle motives are to "keep government honest" (the role of the Fourth Estate, as enshrined in the US Constitution) and to demonstrate that real journalism can still be done.

News is now "produced" by corporations, and Greenwald argues that the only kind of reporting that a "corporation" will do is favourable to the existence of corporate values and corporate allies. The Newspaper is dying and Television and Radio are beguiling advertising-delivery systems. Investigative journalism requires courage but it also needs funding.

The Fourth Estate may survive if it can use the Internet as a private, inexpensive means to communicate. The privacy and security of the Internet are the very notions that Greenwald and Snowden hope to protect.

This is a monumental book. It is a must read for every thinking person, not only Americans. I am Canadian and it concerns me deeply too.
Snowden is a highly intelligent young man with supreme courage. He will be remembered as an American hero. He expresses himself extremely well, articulate and philosophical beyond his years. Americans will be proud of him. I am proud of him.
Greenwald is an easy writer, passionate, a wonderful read. He too is a hero as well as Laura Poitras. We are so fortunate to have them.
I will support any effort to back up Snowden. It is extremely sad that he has No Place to Hide. Our Prime Minister does not have the courage or backbone to speak up, but then we are the mouse to the American elephant..
I strongly recommend getting this book and reading not once but over again. And recommending to all your friends.
