The WikiLeaks Files

The World According to US Empire

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

What Cablegate tells us about the reach and ambitions of US Empire. Published in collaboration with WikiLeaks.

WikiLeaks came to prominence in 2010 with the release of 251,287 top-secret State Department cables, which revealed to the world what the US government really thinks about national leaders, friendly dictators, and supposed allies. It brought to the surface the dark truths of crimes committed in our name: human rights violations, covert operations, and cover-ups.

The WikiLeaks Files exposes the machinations of the United States as it imposes a new form of imperialism on the world, one founded on tactics from torture to military action, to trade deals and “soft power,” in the perpetual pursuit of expanding influence. The book also includes an introduction by Julian Assange examining the ongoing debates about freedom of information, international surveillance, and justice.

An introduction by Julian Assange—writing on the subject for the first time—exposes the ongoing debates about freedom of information, international surveillance, and justice.

With contributions by Dan Beeton, Phyllis Bennis, Michael Busch, Peter Certo, Conn Hallinan, Sarah Harrison, Richard Heydarian, Dahr Jamail, Jake Johnston, Alexander Main, Robert Naiman, Francis Njubi Nesbitt, Linda Pearson, Gareth Porter, Tim Shorrock, Russ Wellen, and Stephen Zunes.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 03, 2015 – This compilation of contributions from WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Assange, WikiLeaks section editor Sarah Harrison, and a team of journalists, professors, and writers is full of eye-opening scholarly analysis of the diplomatic cables made public by the WikiLeaks group, focusing on the 2010 2011 "Cablegate" disclosures. It takes on a huge amount of data and delivers a thorough introduction to the narratives of U.S. policy that the cables reveal. The first part is divided into sections by political topic, such as relations with dictators and economic strategy. These overarching analyses provide the background for the focused work in the second part, which highlights specific countries and regions; it includes chapters on Wikipedia's PlusD (Public Library of U.S. Diplomacy) database of leaked State Department cables and on U.S. policy regarding the International Criminal Court. The analysis is provided with appropriate context and sources cited and quoted. Organizing the book by theme and region makes the information in the cables accessible to a wide audience of readers who may not otherwise have the time or background knowledge to search through the data themselves. Some knowledge of political terminology is needed to understand the research, which will appeal mainly to readers already interested in politics and U.S. foreign policy. The insights from researchers provide an excellent resource and solid foundation for further research by scholars or lay readers.
