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.
Amazon should not allow books for sale that are not properly done.

The Age of WikiLeaks: From Collateral Murder to Cablegate is an incredible re-/collection of details and insight into the rise of WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, and a great -UNBIASED- coverage of details and facts about Wikileaks' bombshell revelations about the Iraq and Afghan war logs. If one wants to understand the work and mission of Assange and his organisation this book offers an extremely valuable insight. I was blown away by the author Greg Mitchell's vast research which went into this book.
"The following morning, the Guardian carried a Q & A with Assange, from his safe house, which crashed the website. He stressed, as so few in media had, that only fully-redacted (with the help of media) cables had been posted."
Thinking it would a political book when I picked it up I was positively surprised that this one is much more of a history book. It tells the *factual* story of Wikileaks and Assange.
In addition, the author does not throw his own opinion at you. I really like that because it leaves it up to *me* to form my own opinion - which is what real journalism is supposed to be like.
"In a free society, we are supposed to know the truth. In a society where truth becomes treason, we are in big trouble" -Ron Paul
Steve Erlanger of The New York Times observes: "The United States considers itself a shining beacon of democracy and openness, but for many Europeans, Washington's fierce reaction to the flood of secret diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks displays imperial arrogance and hypocrisy, indicating a post-9/11 obsession with secrecy that contradicts American principles."
I had a hard time putting it away .... Riveting if you are into history, politics and real journalism. Greg Mitchell is one of the nation's most ethical and insightful journalists who was able to successfully cover and explore this political controversy with bravado which takes extensive knowledge. And courage. Thumbs up, 5 stars.
