The Autobiography of Julian Assange
It is a book that Wikileaks founder did not want to write, his autobiography. Yet it is a book that promises such much and an anticipating customer hopes will deliver too. Julian Assange will recieve somewhere in the region of $1.3 million from his American publisher, a subsidiary of Random House, and his UK publisher Canongate Books Ltd. Inevitably he will recieve much more if the book proves popular, that covers only the two biggest markets for only one of the many world languages.Â The book could, potentially, become one of the biggest selling autobiographies of all time. At very least it will probably match Obama's offering. So, why are we all so excited about this release?
There are few people in the spotlight on this earth as mysterious and intriguing as Julian Assange, we know almost nothing about his past or his upbringing, yet he is wanted by global governments for effectively spreading the word about democracy. The hunt for Julian Assange is effectively an attack on our freedoms, the ultimate in censorship, and there is no doubt that Barrack Obama is talking about him on a daily basis. We all know why we are talking about him, but how did he get here in the first place? And why did he pursue his mission? There have been many slurs against Assange made in publications throughout the world, more recently a damning book by his former partner Daniel Domscheit-Berg painted an ugly picture of a power obsessed and highly paranoid man, without a good bone in his body.
Assange and Wikileaks are said to be considering legal action against Daniel Domscheit-Berg for certain comments in his release, Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website, but ultimately his own book will allow him to respond to criticisms and have the final word on internal Wikileaks events.
Wikileaks Versus the World: My Story Release Date
According to the British, French, German and Japanese Amazon sites, where the book is available for pre-order, it is due for a release on 7th April 2011. In the US and Canada, however, the book is not listed for sale. Could it be that the Julian Assange autobiography is going to be banned in America and Canada? I guess that the only way that you can guarentee a copy of the book is the buy it from Europe and get it shipped accordingly.
