Summary

Thebattle lines are drawn: freedom of speech against the control of the State. TheInternet is the battle ground. In this war there will be only one winner. In TheMost Dangerous Man in the World, award-winning journalist Andrew Fowlertalks to Julian Assange, his inner circle, and those disaffected by him. Fowlerdeftly reveals the story of how a man with a turbulent childhood and brilliancefor computers created a phenomenon that has disrupted the worlds of bothjournalism and international politics. From Assange's early skirmishes with the cult of Scientology in Australia tothe release of 570,000 intercepts of pager messages sent on the day of theSeptember 11th attacks and the visual bombshell of the Collateral Murdervideo-showing American soldiers firing on civilians and Reuters reporters-Fowlertakes us from the founding of WikiLeaks right up to Cablegate, and the threatof further leaks. New information based on interviews conducted with Assange reveal thepossibility that he has Asperger's syndrome, why U.S. soldier Bradley Manningturned to an ex-hacker to spill military secrets, and how Assange helped policeremove a "how to make a bomb" book from the Internet. The mother of one of hischildren also talks for the first time about life with Julian when he wassetting up WikiLeaks. According to the "Pentagon Papers" whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, JulianAssange is "the most dangerous man in the world." But just who is JulianAssange, and why is his quest for transparency and freedom of the press sodangerous in the eyes of his detractors? In a fascinating account that readslike a Tom Clancy thriller, Fowler reveals all-what it means, and why itmatters. Like The Looming Tower on 9/11 or The Lords of Financeon the collapse of the US economy, The Most Dangerous Man in the Worldis the definitive journalistic account of a massive global news event that haschanged the face of journalism and the way governments do business.
