Présentation de l'éditeur

In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to meet an anonymous source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels. That source turned out to be the 29-year-old NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and his revelations about the agency’s widespread, systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. As the arguments rage on and the government considers various proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowden’s disclosures.

Now for the first time, Greenwald fits all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity ten-day trip to Hong Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing fresh information on the NSA’s unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself.

Going beyond NSA specifics, Greenwald also takes on the establishment media, excoriating their habitual avoidance of adversarial reporting on the government and their failure to serve the interests of the people. Finally, he asks what it means both for individuals and for a nation’s political health when a government pries so invasively into the private lives of its citizens—and considers what safeguards and forms of oversight are necessary to protect democracy in the digital age. Coming at a landmark moment in American history, No Place to Hide is a fearless, incisive, and essential contribution to our understanding of the U.S. surveillance state.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read ! 14 juillet 2014

Format:Broché
Un excellent témoignage d'un 'vrai' journaliste, Glenn Greewald, contacté par un whistle-blower, Edouard Snowden, essayant de comprendre, et surtout de faire connaitre au monde, le vrai rôle de la NSA, secret de polichinelle.

One of the most important books you can read right now. Tells the story, provides key facts, skewers top news outlets for their divisiveness to power - and us for our foolishly cynical fatalism towards the ripping away of our rights.

Passionnant, informatif et préoccupant. Cesserons nous d'être surveillés? nous rebellerons nous contre cette surveillance? l'avenir dépend plus de nous que de nos gouvernements qui semblent plutôt ne pas vouloir faire de vagues et surtout ne pas offenser l'ami américain.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting but Flawed 16 juin 2014
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Evidently the booked was rushed out and has quite a few typos, bad formatting etc. MS Word would have spotted them but maybe Greenwald didnt trust Microsoft!

Philosophically the book is flawed. OK he may consider that mass surveillance is a 'bad thing' and perhaps warrants public debate. But then to go on a reveal details of techniques used for intelligence gathering against foreign countries and diplomats is another matter - just damage for the sake of damage. Diplomats have been targeting each-other for many centuries - it's part of the game - nothing new here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Why is Edward Snowden so alone? 13 mai 2014
Par Robert Scheer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It is 4 AM and I have just finished reading, in one sitting, the Kindle download of a book that I only intended to skim because I thought that I knew the full story. What was compelling was encountering the courage and decency of this whistleblower and that of the few brave journalists willing to honestly tell his story. That and the justifiable contempt for those in the housebroken media and compromised government who felt the need to besmirch the character of those willing to bear witness to crimes that almost everyone else in a position to know chose to ignore. The result is a page turner survey of just what the Snowden leaks tell us about the creation of the modern surveillance state and a reminder of the deep wisdom of this nation's founders in insisting on the Constitution's Fourth Amendment. This is a brilliant book that you will want to pass on to that neighbor absolutely convinced that the hollowing out of liberty has made us safer. Glenn Greenwald reminds us just why the Guardian and Washington Post won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in publishing the documents that Edward Snowden made available and how outrageous it is that his effort to inform the public of attacks on their freedom has left this brave young man a hunted fugitive.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book by Greenwald on US as a Surveillance State 15 mai 2014
Par Tony - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A brief note before you purchase this book:
This is not a book written for the purpose of telling you the US government is watching your every step and every move, everyone knows that. And the author did not waste time replicating news articles you've already read through the media outlets. I finished this book within 5 hours, and thought it was well written and well worth your time.

Greenwald, one of the original journalists who revealed Snowden's leaks last year, did a remarkably good job on going over the history of U.S.'s surveillance tactics. In his new book, No Place to Hide, Greenwald briefly goes over his adventures/experience on meeting with Edward Snowden and revealing US's NSA surveillance program. Greenwald explains the difficulties and obstacles that were involved before the story went live, mostly by reluctant lawyers, and news agencies such as NYT and Washington Post. For those curious, Greenwald also explains in detail the true intentions of Edward Snowden.

Later chapters of the book reveal Greenwald's opinion on the recent NSA leaks, and his classification of US as a surveillance state.

Keep in mind that Greenwald was previously a columnist, and his writing style of a columnist is clearly seen throughout the book. This is not merely a book with facts, but a book with opinion, with logical and concrete evidence that not just the U.S., but other state actors are well, are progressing into what George Orwell wrote in his infamous 1984 novel (Orwellian state).

Greenwald ends the book by warning the consequences involved as we progress into the Orwellian state and the issue of journalists not being journalists, but being government puppets instead.

This is a highly recommended book for those who wish to read into detail one of the biggest government leaks in the history.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dangerous idea -- the right to be let alone 15 mai 2014
Par S. Grose - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
No Place to Hide is about a dangerous idea -- the right to be let alone. It's not a puff piece meant to rouse one side or another. It's a nuanced story about how the Snowden files went down and why it matters. The book doesn't fatten the pages or waste time. It's factual. It's well-written and well-edited. It's a satisfying read.

No Place to Hide is about journalists, editors, lovers, a filmmaker, a whistle-blower, and the world's most influential newspapers, and television corporations. It is about a group of people who were cursed to live in interesting times, who were faced with decisions few of us will ever make. They had to learn to trust each other. It's a book about a group of people who were courageous enough to defend "the right to be left alone . . . the right most valued by a free people."

Greenwald tells a fascinating story about how each person put their professional careers and their personal freedom on the line, and in the case of Edward Snowden, his life on the line to expose documents to the entire world, so we can all decide what is true and what is not.

Greenwald's book includes high intrigue and an exotic locale, Hong Kong. It could be compared to an international thriller, and it is all that but it is more. It's like reading history as it happens, as it is lived, and that is thrilling.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Little new NSA content or analysis, but decent insights into media itself 17 mai 2014
Par Ryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've been following the Edward Snowden saga since it started, and following NSA, the IC, and the national security state since the early 1990s. I had to read this book, as Glenn Greenwald had a critical role in bringing Snowden's materials to the public, and I wanted to see if he had anything new to say.

In one way, the book is very good. If you aren't terribly familiar with the situation, he provides a decent overview, and some new slides which illustrate what NSA has been doing (particularly since 9/11) and why it's bad. A particularly strong area is explaining why the "terrorism" justification is only a pretext, and the true purpose of domestic surveillance is controlling political and cultural rivals.

However, if you're completely familiar with everything published to date, there really isn't much new in this book. The only new material, aside from yet more slides about classified programs, is a bit more detail into how the pre-publication review process worked (or didn't work), and some inside baseball about the media itself. This is interesting, but ultimately not compelling. It's a pretty short book, too.

If you are deeply interested in the media and its handling of the national security state, or just want to read everything possible on the topic, sure, this is a good enough book.

If you are a general interest person who just wants an overview of the Snowden situation and its import, I would recommend the PBS Frontline "United States of Secrets", which is an excellent overview with much stronger interviews with Thomas Drake, William Binney, etc. than I'd seen in the media before.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Astoundingly Good Book! 14 mai 2014
Par Steven Dubnoff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I, too, thought I already knew the story, but Greenwald tells it as a coherent whole, with elegance and passion. Read it, you will learn what is the matter with our government, our press and why Edward Snowden is truly a hero for our time.

Just one piece of advice, buy the book and not the Kindle edition. I found the documents very difficult to read on my Kindle. It was frustrating and a squint-inducing.
