More About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
There are 6 sections: Collateral Murder, Bradley Manning, Afghanistan War Logs, Iraq War Logs, Cablegate, And Beyond. In the last section, Mitchell comments on the explosion of leak-hosting web sites in the wake of Wikileaks' global celebrity, alluding to the book's title, which refers to the Leak Phenomenon as a whole. The other sections follow events as they unfold, the release itself followed by the global reaction, of which there has never been any shortage of quantity or breadth. Mitchell includes information about behind-the-scenes wrangling leading up to the leaks where that information is available. He generally doesn't opine or bring first-hand experience to the discussion. An exception is his comments on "solatia", a subject about which he has written before.
The section on Cablegate constitutes about a third of the book and includes a blow-by-blow account of the release and reaction for the first few days, excerpted from Mitchell's blog.Read more ›
Wikileaks inaugurated the first infowar, in accompaniment to what I believe may prove a major leap forward in the evolution of a generally more informed and enlightened human consciousness.
I haven't read this book yet, but I've followed the Wikileaks story and Mitchell's blog closely. I am confident that no one has more of the relevant facts at his fingertips than Mitchell does, and I believe his book will prove an invaluable resource for historians in the near and far future. I only hope Mitchell continues to report on this story.

Great book and cheap, but I am surprised that it does not have a table of contents (which is almost a must for ebooks). Read morePublished on July 6, 2013 by Ronald
