On Tuesday, Congress passed the USA Freedom Act, a new reform measure that ends the National Security Agency's bulk collection of phone data of American citizens. This controversial program was revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and sparked impassioned debates about electronic surveillance, national security, and privacy in the digital age.
To mark the second anniversary of Snowden's first leaks to the media (and with new revelations recently shared with the New York Times and ProPublica), we are offering a chance to win a free copy of David P. Fidler's book The Snowden Reader.
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. Learn more about the book and the continuing impact of Snowden's leaks in this podcast and guest blog post by David Fidler.
