The Most Dangerous Man In The World

The Inside Story On Julian Assange And WikiLeaks

Andrew Fowler
Winner, Nettie Palmer Prize for Non-Fiction, VIC Premier's Literary Awards, 2011
The Most Dangerous Man in the World is the definitive account of WikiLeaks, threats against its existence and the man who is as secretive as the organisations he targets. Through interviews with Julian Assange, his inner circle and those who fell out with him, Andrew Fowler tells the story of how a man with a turbulent childhood and brilliance for computers created a phenomenon that has become a game-changer in journalism and global politics.
In this international thriller, Fowler gives a ringside seat on the biggest leak in history. He charts the pursuit of Assange by the US and Sweden and the offer of political asylum by Eucador. It tells the story of how in the eyes of many Assange had become, according to the Pentagon Papers whistleblower, Daniel Ellsberg, 'the most dangerous man in the world'.
