Description: IT BEGAN WITH A TANTALIZING,ANONYMOUS EMAIL: "I AM A SENIOR MEMBEROF THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY." What followed was the most spectacular intelligence breach ever, brought about by oneextraordinary man. Edward Snowden was a 29-year-old computer genius working for theNational Security Agency when he shocked the world by exposing the near-universal masssurveillance programs of the United States government. His whistleblowing has shakenthe leaders of nations worldwide, and generated a passionate public debate on the dangersof global monitoring and the threat to individual privacy. In a tour de force of investigative journalism that reads like a spy novel, award-winningGuardian reporter Luke Harding tells Snowden's astonishing story--from the day he lefthis glamorous girlfriend in Honolulu carrying a hard drive full of secrets, to the weeks of hissecret-spilling in Hong Kong, to his battle for asylum and his exile in Moscow. Forthe first time, Harding brings together the many sources and strands of the story--touchingon everything from concerns about domestic spying to the complicity of the tech sector--while also placing us in the room with Edward Snowden himself. The result is a grippinginsider narrative--and a necessary and timely account of what is at stake for all of us in thenew digital age.
