Julian Assange: The Unauthorised Autobiography is a portrait of a man who polarises opinion but who has also changed the world. Whether you read this book as a ghosted memoir or as a Ôliterary interpretation of a conversationÕ (which is how Assange himself describes it), it may be the most insightful and intimate account of him that we will ever have. In December 2010 amidst a battle against allegations concerning his personal life, and with angry denunciations of American politicians ringing in his ears in the wake of the US Embassy Cable releases, Julian Assange began writing the story of his life. What took shape over months of effort is a book that describes not only the work of WikiLeaks, but the moral and political development of its founder, from his childhood in Australia, through travels in Europe, Asia and Africa, right up to the present day. Although the publication of this autobiography has occurred in controversial circumstances, the result is nonetheless a book that burns with passion and anger, an essential book for our time, and a meditation on the meaning of disclosure. The voice that winds its way through these pages is unmistakeable. We believe that this book is essential to any informed view of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. We invite you to read it and make up your own mind.
