An Amazon Best Book of the Month, May 2014: In May of 2013, Edward Snowden, a young systems administrator contracting
for the National Security Agency, fled the United States for Hong Kong, carrying with him thousands of classified
documents outlining the staggering capabilities of the NSA.’s surveillance programs--including those designed to collect
information within the U.S. There Snowden arranged a meeting with Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald, and so began the
most explosive leak of classified material since the Pentagon Papers, over 40 years ago. No Place to Hide opens with
Greenwald’s tense account of his initial cloak-and-dagger encounters with Snowden, then transitions into descriptions of
the NSA’s vast information-collection apparatus, including a selection of the “Snowden files” with commentary on the
alphabet soup of agencies and code names. And--in typical Greenwald style--the book is packed with his opinions on
government snooping, its legality, and the impacts on our Constitutional freedoms. Whether you consider Snowden a
whistleblower crying foul on government overreach, or a self-aggrandizing traitor who put national security at risk,
Greenwald’s book is thrilling and enlightening, a bellwether moment in a crucial debate. --Jon Foro
