WikiLeaks, By David Leigh and Luke Harding


This "new and updated edition" adds 33 pages to the 2010 original but few revelations.

A chapter cattily entitled "The Simon Bolivar of SW1" describes Julian Assange’s life in the Ecuadorian embassy, trudging on a treadmill supplied by Ken Loach.

We’re reminded of the 35-year sentence imposed on Bradley Manning despite an inept prosecution case, and how Assange "was quick to claim credit for Edward Snowden's liberty [in Russia]".

Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger makes a strong point: "What has been remarkable is how the sky has not fallen in."
