It was the first book to appear on the rise of WikiLeaks, and a month later it is still going strong (see cover at far left). The Age of WikiLeaks: From Collateral Murder to Cablegate is now out in both print ($11.95) and e-book ($4.99) editions and has been updated to early February. The e-book can be read on iPhone, Kindle, Blackberry, iPad, Android, on the Web and more. This week it was even optioned for a movie (details to come). And, of course, I continue to write the only daily live-blog on WikiLeaks News & Views, just well past the 80th day at The Nation's site.
I'm just getting around to posting about the new book here and so more will follow. For now I'll leave it at this:
"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
This acclaimed 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. Published by Sinclair Books.
"One of the nation's most insightful journalists, Greg Mitchell, tackles in this book one of the most fascinating and important political controversies of the last decade: WikiLeaks. Few commentators know more about this vital topic. Mitchell's daily blog has been a must-read." ---Glenn Greenwald, Salon.com
