Format:Perfect Paperback
This book describes the history of WikiLeaks, with the emphasis on the events of 2010: the video "Collateral Murder"; the war diaries of Afghanistan and Iraq; and most famously the State Department cables. Of course, the story cannot be complete without a detailed portrait of Julian Assange, and the book does not disappoint on this front either. I have followed the media coverage surrounding the rape allegation against Assange, and I have never read a more balanced and careful account than here. It does not dominate the story, but of course it forms an integral part of the history of WikiLeaks in 2010, as the fate of Assange and WikiLeaks seem intimately entangled.

The authors are journalists of the German paper "Der Spiegel", and have worked with WikiLeaks and other papers on the dissemination of the leaks. As such, they are very well placed to give an inside account. At the same time, they have not fallen out with Assange (like so many others), and don't use the book to settle a personal score. They hardly ever editorialize in the main part of the book, and they paint critical portraits of all involved. Most complicated is Assange, who comes across both as a charming visionary with near limitless energy who is the driving force of WikiLeaks from the start, but who may also be WikiLeaks greatest problem: It seems that he is not capable of transforming the organization from its initial ad hoc collection of idealists/hackers to a more mature and transparent organization.

Towards the end of the book, the personal views of the authors on WikiLeaks becomes more prominent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Assange is Monster and Hero 6 Jun 2012
By Tetsuya Koja - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
Founder of Wikileaks

Solitary childhood. discord with cult group, parental separation,vagrant life.
Boyhood who is honor student.

And, he met to computer.

Complex one's home environment and complex upbringing made one monster.

His life is a rocky and full of drama.
Assange was familiar with the computer from the child age.

Knowledge and the technology of the computer became arms superior to the military force for him.
He won the powerful enemy and the huge evil by the power.

The monster became a hero.

If the enemy very looks at the weak point and begins to go out even though is powerful, the ant can also win the elephant.
However, women's problems made him a temporary loser afterwards.
He was betrayed by the companion.

A lot of those who supported it also obtained it though he made many enemies.
He is fighting while doing the escape life now.

The monster and the hero are only a fine line.

We should make man Assange example at times, and should make it to the teaching material by negative example at times.
The life of him recorded in this book contains danger.
However, this book becomes one of the hope depending on how to catch the reader.
