Edward Snowden: 2 different perspectives on the leaks

  • Mar 30, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Ladies,

I thought perhaps this time we'd try something different:  2 books (one very short!) offering different views on the Edward Snowden intelligence leaks. 

Please only RSVP if: (a) you have access to a kindle (apologies but one of the books appears to be solely in that format); (b)  you are not attending any other session in March (so that more of our members can have the opportunity to participate in sessions - we are at 100 members!); and (c) you actually intend to read the books and turn up (please no free option takers as this can be very unfair to other members who would like to attend but can't due to all places being allocated). 

The books are as follows:

The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding


The Snowden Operation: Inside the West's Greatest Intelligence Disaster by Edward Lucas (kindle only and £.99!).

If we get a full session and enough people on the wait list I'll see if I can find a venue to accommodate more of us (or if not perhaps another host for a repeat session in April).

    Hey. I just wanted to make sure that everyone's aware of the TED talk Snowden did the other day and the TED talk NSA did as a reply. It's interesting and a great addition to the books

    Hi, I was on the waitlist and didn't realise that I automatically got put onto the list. It's mother's day this Sunday so I am not free. I hope you all enjoy!
