"It was the biggest leak in history.  WikiLeaks infuriated the world's greatest superpower, embarrassed the British royal family and helped cause a revolution in North Africa.  The man behind it was Julian Assange, one of the strangest figures ever to become a worldwide celebrity.  Internet messiah or cyber-terrorist? Information freedom fighter or sex criminal?
In this newly updated edition, award-winning Guardian journalists David Leigh and Luke Harding follow the story as it takes on an ever-weirder twists and turns.  In London, Assange went to ground in the back bedroom of the Ecuadorian embassy.  Meanwhile, in a courtroom near Washington, the fate of the US army whistle-blower Bradley Manning hung in teh balance.  And in Hawaii, a young man named Edward Snowden, working as a contractor for the National Security Agency, was about to take WikiLeaks into even darker territory."
