Though it shows some signs of being an "instant book," the detail and thinking that went into the work makes for extremely worthwhile political analysis. It provides a strong factual recounting of the Lamo affair, which helped "capture" Manning. It provides excellent context for the military hearings, and documents Manning's imprisonment and mistreatment by authorities as well as we can determine from the outside. It covers the damage assessment from the leaks well. It's very acessible; for example, by drawing attention to the moment when Daniel Ellsberg placed his hand on Bradley Manning's shoulder in the military courtroom, the authors brilliantly provide historical context and meaning that explains to the reader in a single image why Manning's story is so important. The one complaint this reviewer has is the book's failure to explain who Manning is. It contains the full recounting of the family problems and sexual identity questions, but doesn't seem to provide a context that ties neatly with the document release. The authors, of course, had no access to Manning, which makes such a discussion difficult.

The very beginning pages cite the Karen Silkwood case, whose death in the town that Manning was born in, thirteen years previous to Manning's birth, is used to frame the book's central question: "Crescent residents still argue about Silkwood today: hero or political malcontent?" By the end of the book, that Manning is a hero for our times is made clear. "Truth And Consequences: The U.S. vs. Bradley Manning" is an excellent and thoughtful account well worth reading.

This book might benefit from a good editor, but as is, it tells an important story which is not being covered by the major media outlets. On finishing the book, I don't feel as though I understand Bradley Manning, but I know a lot more about him, and I know a lot more about the secrets which our government believes it is entitled to keep from us.

This is a page turner! I couldn't put it down! If you have even a passing interest in how things have occurred with Wikileaks and Pfc Bradley Manning and how our government works, you owe it to yourself to read this. It's a bargain at $3.99.
