Wikileaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy by David Leigh and Luke Harding (Guardian Books).
The Guardian was one of five papers - El Pais, New York Times, Der Spiegel (a weekly) and Le Monde - to eventually agree a deal late last year with Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, to release secret US tapes covering Iraq and Afghanistan and much else besides.
Wikileaks is the first of maybe half a dozen books which will be out over the next three months which will cover either Julian Assange, an odd ball at best, and/or the issues thrown up by the leaks themselves.
David Leigh and Luke Harding covered the unfolding story for The Guardian and have now put their account to paper at record speed and it makes for a cracking read.
The Wikileaks organisation (if that's what it is) can rightly claim to have started the political upheaval in Kenya in 2007, it was probably a bit-part player in the recent coups in Tunisia and Egypt though it might have empowered the Internet generations in both countries. Whatever, my sense is we haven't heard the last of Mr Assange.
