5.0 étoiles sur 5 Knowledge Is Power 15 avril 2014
Par Pierce Yates - Publié sur
I followed this event as it was happening last year, primarily by reading articles posted to Reddit. "The Edward Snowden Affair" was a gift from a friend, and the book took what I thought I knew about this case to a new level. As a student of history and political science, I really appreciate the attention to detail and the nearly overwhelming number of references cited in this work. Like others have said, the author makes a sincere effort to avoid bias, but I get the overwhelming sense that he does not hate Edward Snowden. The book took me for a ride, my ADD kicked in at times, and as soon as I would try to set it down, the plot would thicken again. If you like being informed on information and how it seems to work in the digital age, then check this book out. If you are interested in the controversy of mass intelligence gathering or finding out if we really live in Orwell's 1984 as some claim, check this book out. If you don't believe it is important to find out more about what is going on around you, or feel more free knowing you are being watched, don't check this book out.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A dandy affair: Snowden versus the world 2 avril 2014
Par timothy a chism - Publié sur
The Edward Snowden Affair was a fantastic read. The author, MIchael Gurnow, takes the complex issue of spy versus government in an entertaining and easy to read narrative. There are times, when reading through the book, it feels like a spy novel instead of the real world. The story of Snowden is the classic David versus Goliath and the author does well in portraying the gravity of Snowden's decision to do what he did, the sacrifices it took, and the potential consequences he faced if caught.
The author does a good job in keeping an unbiased presentation of the information. Some of the material is difficult to present unbiased, and when those moments arise, he makes mention and states it. The Edward Snowden Affair is a fantastic book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 1984 in 2014 28 mars 2014
Par Dr. Wilson Trivino - Publié sur
Before I read this book, I reflected on the moments when the impact of a internet made a difference of the evolution of a story. First came to mind was the Monica Lewinski scandal during the Clinton era were an unknown Drudge Report put the facts on the web, it was out in a flash and almost brought down a presidency. The second was the untimely death of Michael Jackson whereas twitter and other social media sites shut down by the mere surge activity and of course September 11 burned an image to those who lived then and in seeing in real time the falling of the twin towers.
These events do seem far removed from the world we live in today. The information age has brought many unforeseen advantages: to have virtual maps to anywhere, to always be in contact with those close to us, or the power to have in the palm of your hands all the information of human civilization.
The Snowden affair was also one that was first exposed on the internet and brought to light some of the dangers of the internet age when it intersects government surveillance. How our digital footprint has made us more susceptible to being tracked. What Edward Snowden shared was that big brother, our own government was listening and paying attention to us in the interest of national security. 1984 has finally arrived.
Author Michael Gurnow in his book The Edward Snowden Affair: Exposing the Politics and Media Behind the NSA Scandal has in his book documented the entire episode. This book more than a mere expose on Edward Snowden but the interactions between the media, politics, public policy, and democratic ideals.
The book reads like a political thriller and would make an ideal movie, with all type of James Bond plots, but it gives the reader a good foundation to make a judgment on the current state of the evolving technological revolution.
This work also points to how this abstract Snowden affair has direct implications to our daily lives. How smart phones have created a window whereas our government can keep detail tabs on our lives. How tax funded government agencies collect large amount of digital information and some may even cross our civil liberties. Why should we care? Maybe we shouldn’t, as Georgia’s Senator Saxby Chambliss is quoted in the text, “You can’t have your privacy violated if you don’t know your privacy is violated”. On the other hand, maybe we should, because a healthy democracy is an informed one. Maybe we the citizenry should pay attention and take action while holding our elected officials and bureaucracies accountable.
The Edward Snowden Affair: Exposing the Politics and Media Behind the NSA Scandal by Michael Gurnow is a fascinating narrative and hopefully will spur the discussion of the balance of what our government needs to know about us and what they need to know for not only our safety but national security.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sobering... 26 mars 2014
Par Thomas Matthew Gibbons - Publié sur
Whether you think Snowden is a hero or traitor or both, this book gives an an inside look into his life, background, and motivations. The book is heavy on facts collected through a huge number of sources. The author does an excellent job of sorting these facts into a digestible form. Not a pithy read, though. It covers national and international surveillance efforts, media coverage, politics, privacy (or lack thereof), and tries to make it accessible to the layperson. The author successfully compiles and dispenses this information and allows the reader to form an opinion. The author's opinions are largely confined to the afterword, a welcome departure from today's spin-heavy "news" sources. Good stuff!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Political Thriller At Its Best! 12 avril 2014
Par J Gardner - Publié sur
Michael Gurnow's The Edward Snowden Affair is a multi-edged sword. It is equal parts political thriller as he leads his audience through the NSA leaker's life and his time leading up to the thief of a purported 1.7 million classified government documents; the six months of clandestine meetings with various members of the press as he plots and manages to get hired onto the last NSA contractor whose files he would need to provide the world with the story of the modern America surveillance state; and the fallout which ensued with the Obama administration, press, foreign nations, and cited multinational corporations implicated in the scandal. In the process, he clearly outlines to the average reader the technological and legal ramifications of the various laws and policies involved in U. S. intelligence practice. With over 50 disclosures presented and discussed, the reader walks away feeling like an authority on Snowden. However, the most rewarding part of the text is Gurnow's Afterword, where he explains the philosophical and ethical implications of the NSA disclosures while saving the best (spoilers withheld), most stunning revelation for last.
