After Snowden - Privacy, Secrecy and Security in the Information Age Review – Opens The Floor to Debate

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

In June 2013, Edward Snowden leaked thousands of documents he stole from the National Security Agency (NSA), from several laptop computers, exposing flaws and violations of the Fourth Amendment routinely practiced in the Domestic Surveillance program.

The story is well documented. From the moment he became an international fugitive to his now temporary asylum status in Russia.

Former Federal prosecutor Ronald Goldfarb has put together seven of the country’s scholars across their respected disciplines to weigh in on how the Snowden affair has changed the world we live in and what can and should be done to stop the violations and to create a system that utilizes the protections necessary to keep the American people safe from domestic terror.

The authors, who each dedicated a chapter to addressing a particular area, legal, journalistic, political, ethical, are:

Thomas Blanton, Director of the National Security Archive in Washington. He is a graduate of Harvard University, and his writing has won the George Polk Award for “piercing self-serving veils of government secrecy, guiding journalist in search for truth and informing us all.”

Hodding Carter III, a professor of leadership and public policy at the University of North Carolina. A long time reporter who has served presidents and won four Emmys and an Edward R. Murrow award. He address the journalistic aspect of Snowden’s action.

David Cole, is the Honorable George J. Mitchell Professor at Law and Public Policy at Georgetown University Law Center, where he teaches constitutional law, national security and criminal justice.

Jon Mills is Dean Emeritus, Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Governmental Responsibility at the University of Florida’s Fredric G. Levin College of Law.

Barry Siegel Professor of English at the University of California Irvine and the director of the University of California Irvine, Literacy Journalism Program. He has won numerous awards including the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing.

Edward Wasserman is the dean of the graduate school of journalism at the University of California, Berkeley. He holds degrees from Yale University and the University of Paris and a Ph.D from the London School of Economics. He lectures on matters of media policy and practices.

After Snowden is a scholarly read and effort that will, for generations to come, be considered the authority on public opinion. It will be required reading across many disciplines and a staple of the college bookstores.

It does provide insight into opinions of those whom the public oft looks to for wisdom in times of political crisis to validate one’s own opinion especially if it is contrary to the media fed opinions.

Not mouthpieces for government rhetoric, our scholars have ventured outside the well-crafted Snowden message and allowed for multiple opinions and approaches to a very sensitive issues.

After Snowden is available through St. Martin’s Press. Published in hardback After Snowden is available for $25.99, domestically, and $29.99, Canada.
