Glenn Greenwald's No Place to Hide is the story of one of the greatest national security leaks in US history.
In June 2013, reporter and political commentator Glenn Greenwald published a series of reports in the Guardian which rocked the world.
The reports revealed shocking truths about the extent to which the National Security Agency had been gathering information about US citizens and intercepting communication worldwide, and were based on documents leaked by former National Security Agency employee Edward Snowden to Greenwald.
Including new revelations from documents entrusted to Greenwald by Snowden, this essential book tells the story of Snowden and the NSA and examines the far-reaching consequences of the government's surveillance program, both in the US and abroad.
'The first thing I do when I turn on the computer in the morning is go to Glenn Greenwald's blog. He is truly one of our greatest writers right now' Michael Moore
'The most important voice to have entered the political discourse in years' Bill Moyers

Acclaimed as one of the twenty-five most influential political commentators by The Atlantic, Greenwald is a former constitutional law and civil rights attorney. He has been a columnist for the Guardian since August 2012 and his work has appeared in numerous newspapers and political news magazines, including The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.

A Pulitzer in the bag, Hollywood knocking on the door and a newfound status as one of the world's most celebrated journalists, Greenwald has pursued the [Snowden] story with passion. Gripping: Jason Bourne meets The Social Network

To put it simply, Greenwald has had one hell of a dizzying run, at the white-hot centre of the media universe as the most reliable source for NSA surveillance scoops
Compelling, powerful, shocking, important
The inside account. Action-packed, engrossing and polemical
Persuasive, thrilling and necessary
In Glenn Greenwald, Edward Snowden found a perfect match. If you want to get a handle on what was at stake when Snowden downloaded the government's most precious secrets onto a thumb drive, this book is your primer
Rings with authority
The story of Edward Snowden is remarkable. Has all the makings of a thriller. Greenwald provides an excellent overview, putting the pieces together in a way that daily journalism cannot
At times, this account by Greenwald of how he landed one of the biggest scoops of the century feels like it has come straight out of the pages of a Robert Ludlum thriller
Spectacular. Dedicated, fearless journalism
Between a spy thriller and analysis . . . an impassioned book
Rewarding. Some passages read like a Tom Clancy CIA thriller
An indispensable book for anyone who cares about the future of privacy, not just in the United States but throughout the world
Gripping. Not only does [No Place to Hide] confirm what many have suspected - that surveillance is happening - but it also makes clear that it's happening on an almost unimaginably vast scale
A powerful and persuasive case for the duty to defend our fast-disappearing privacy
The story of a real conspiracy

An important first-hand account of the Snowden affair
