 “The Snowden Files” by Luke Harding is a biography of the man who leaked the greatest secrets of the NSA, Edward Snowden. Luke Harding, an esteemed British journalist and author follows the story of Snowden and the events leading up to and after the historic leak. As well as Snowden’s encounters with fellow journalists: Glenn Greenwald, Ewen MacAskill, and filmmaker Laura Poitras. Harding is an author that seems to have a passion for exposing government secrets and classified information. Along with “The Snowden Files” and his work on WikiLeaks, Harding has also published the titles: “A Very Expensive Poison: The Definitive Story of the Murder of Litvinenko and Russia’s War with the West”, “WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy”, “Mafia State”, and his latest book “Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win”. He has even been decorated with the Prestigious James Cameron Prize for his work. Over the years Harding has developed an impressive resume, he is a foreign correspondent for The Guardian who has reported from Delhi, Berlin, Moscow (where he stayed for 4 years), and has also covered the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya. Harding graduated with an International Baccalaureate Diploma from UWC’s Atlantic College in South Wales. He then later studied English and Literature at Oxford University while editing the student newspaper “Cherwell”. Furthermore, Luke Harding is a journalist who doesn’t shy away from risk or danger; with his numerous articles and books exposing Russia for an array of topics. From speculating Vladimir Putin’s insane wealth to Russia’s involvement in Trump’s victory. In fact, due to his exposures, Harding was refused re-entry into Russia and according to him, this was the first time a foreign journalist had been expelled from Russia since the Cold War. Due to his education, vast experience, and critically acclaimed work I think Luke Harding is a more than capable author who can produce stellar true crime media.
