Edward Snowden’s revelations about the extent of US surveillance activities, has sent shock waves around the world, the effects of which are still being felt today. In the Permanent recording, the whistle-blower gives his side of the story, as well as detailing his personal history and the reasoning behind his actions. Edward Snowden, the man who has risked everything to expose the government’s system of mass surveillance, reveals for the first time the story of his life, including how he helped to build that system and what motivated him to try to bring it down. In 2013, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Snowden shocked the world when he broke with the American intelligence establishment, and revealed that the U.s. government was secretly pursuing the means to collect every single phone call, an sms, an e-mail. The result would be an unprecedented system of mass surveillance, with the ability to snoop in the private lives of every person on earth. Six years later, Snowden reveals for the first time as he helped to build this system, and why he was moved to expose. Spanning the bucolic ring road, the suburbs of her childhood and clandestine of the CIA and NSA recordings of her adulthood, Permanent record is the extraordinary story of a brilliant young man who grew up in line – a man who became a spy, an informer, and, in exile, the Internet consciousness. Written with wit, grace, passion, and an unflinching candor, Permanent record is a fundamental book of the memories of our digital age and is destined to become a classic.
