No Place to Hide

“I want to spark a worldwide debate about privacy, Internet freedom and the dangers of state surveillance. I am not afraid of what will happen to me…The only thing I can’t live with is knowing I did nothing.” – Edward Snowden
Glenn Greenwald’s ‘No Place to Hide’ is as audacious a book as it is nerve-racking. Largely a commentary on Snowden’s revelations of the NSA’s malpractices and the crumbling state of American journalism, ‘No Place to Hide’ shines an ugly spotlight on the devastating consequences of a state’s paranoid obsession with its security apparatus. It underlines how in the name of national security, a government can perpetrate a vast concoction against its own people. My initial impression of ‘No Place to Hide’ was of a literary ode to ‘Edward Snowden’, but, much to my satisfaction, it turned out to be much more than that.”
