The Guardian will reveal the details of its relationship with WikiLeaks in a book to be published next month.
WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy will recount the paper’s effort to make sense of the deluge of leaks stemming from the whistleblowing organisation.
“They [the authors] look at the internet culture and technology that made the mining of secret information possible, and at the fanatical hackers who set up WikiLeaks,” said a Guardian statement.
“The real story of WikiLeaks has yet to be told and this book will lift the lid on the Guardian‘s unique partnership with Julian Assange, one of the world’s most controversial figures,” claimed investigations editor David Leigh.
“Readers will have a ringside seat as the extraordinary twists and turns of the WikiLeaks story unfold. It’s a story of secret document dumps, spying and sex allegations, written by Guardian journalists who worked with Assange and followed his mission every step of the way. This book will bring you as close to the unvarnished truth as you’re likely to get.”
