I have been following Greg's blogs for some time and he has put together an excellent book here!! Just the facts, and that is what he has delivered. The timelines, the leaks (aka, the truths), world-wide reactions. It's all in here. Highly recommended!!! What I walked away with is how much "watchers of the powerful" are really needed (WikiLeaks this time). I was also pretty disgusted with how the mainstream media and other journalists have reacted and are still reacting towards the information released and towards Assange. With respect to the way the US government's is trying to go after Assange, Assange's words should be ringing in the mainstream journalist's ears...."You're next!". So true, so sad.

"The Age of Wikileaks" is the story of Wikileaks revelations and the varied, often strident, reactions to them from April 2010, when Wikileaks released its "Collateral Murder" video, until early February 2011, as the Cablegate saga was still ongoing. Greg Mitchell began live-blogging the story at "The Nation" on 28 November 2010, the day the first State Department cables were released, and he has been doing so tirelessly ever since. As I write this, his Wikileaks News & Views blog is in Day 83. But the book isn't a summary of the blog; it's a narrative account of Wikileaks' most eventful 9 months. Mitchell focuses on the content and significance of the leaks themselves, then the reaction across the spectrum.

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.

I was curious about Wikileaks and all the controversy surrounding it, so I picked this up. I was concerned when reading in the introduction that the author writes for the Nation, as I have found it to be a mass of NPRish liberal drivel. Thankfully I found this to be a well-researched and interesting overview, and caused me to look a bit differently at a magazine I do like - Wired. It is a rather quick read, and I am glad I picked it up and read it.
