The Snowden Reader

When Edward Snowden began leaking NSA documents in June 2013, his actions sparked impassioned debates about electronic surveillance, national security, and privacy in the digital age. The Snowden Reader looks at Snowden's disclosures and their aftermath. Critical analyses by experts discuss the historical, political, legal, and ethical issues raised by the disclosures. Over forty key documents related to the case are included, with introductory notes explaining their significance: documents leaked by Snowden; responses from the NSA, the Obama administration, and Congress; statements by foreign leaders, their governments, and international organizations; judicial rulings; findings of review committees; and Snowden's own statements. This book provides a valuable introduction and overview for anyone who wants to go beyond the headlines to understand this historic episode.

Reviews

"...A valuable resource for citizens concerned about data collection by government and commercial entities and its impact on privacy."—Booklist

"An intense examination of whistleblower Edward Snowden that successfully wades through both partisan rhetoric and ideological constraints . . . Fidler's work is significant because, while events are still playing out, it is actively helping to make sense of this pressing particular American crisis a lot more quickly. An indispensable resource for understanding the Snowden leaks."—Kirkus Reviews

"The Snowden Reader is a must-read volume for every citizen who cares about protecting our fundamental right to privacy, and ensuring that our nation's legitimate security needs are kept within the letter and spirit of our Constitution."—Bob Barr, former Member, U.S. House of Representatives

"The Snowden Reader combines a collection of key original documents with thoughtful essays by a range of experts, which shed new light on the momentous issues surrounding Edward Snowden's dramatic disclosures. This is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in not only the compelling Snowden story, but also urgent broader questions about government surveillance, secrecy, treatment of whistleblowers and executive accountability, as well as implications for technology companies, international relations, and potential legislative reform."—Nadine Strossen, Professor, New York Law School and former president, American Civil Liberties Union
