By Glenn Greenwald, megastar of Citizenfour, the Academy Award-winning documentary on Edward Snowden
In may well 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to satisfy an nameless resource who claimed to have fantastic proof of pervasive govt spying and insisted on speaking purely via seriously encrypted channels. That resource became out to be the twenty-nine-year-old NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and his revelations concerning the agency's frequent, systemic overreach proved to be one of the most explosive and consequential information in contemporary background, triggering a fierce debate over nationwide protection and knowledge privacy.
Now Greenwald matches every little thing jointly, recounting his high-intensity eleven-day journey to Hong Kong, reading the wider implications of the surveillance unique in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing clean info at the NSA's unparalleled abuse of energy with records from the Snowden archive. Fearless and incisive, No position to Hide has already sparked outrage worldwide and been hailed via voices around the political spectrum as an important contribution to our realizing of the U.S. surveillance state.
