Books on Snowden

Greenwald, Glenn. No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, The N.S.A., and the U.S. Surveillance State." New York: Metropolitan, 2014.

Peake, Studies 58.3 (Sep. 2014), notes the book's themes that Snowden's actions were justified because he was seeking reform and "journalists have the absolute right to be the final arbiters of what to publish," for which he offers an "often bitter and as hominem rationale."

Harding, Luke. The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man. New York: Vintage, 2014.

To Peake, Studies 58.3 (Sep. 2014), the author "clearly views Snowden as a noble, self-sacrificing whistle-blower."

Lucas, Edward. The Snowden Operation: Inside the West's Greatest Intelligence Disaster. Edward Lucas eBook, 2014.

Peake, Studies 58.3 (Sep. 2014), comments that the author "does not see Snowden as the product of heroic virtues, or Western intelligence as the perpetrator of persisten willful illegalities.... Lucas concludes that Snowden has become a pawn in an information warfare operation."
