Within a relatively short period of time, WikiLeaks became the best-known whistle-blowing organization in the world. Due in large part to the release of massive quantities of classified data on the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, the notoriety of its founder, Julian Assange, and the trial and imprisonment of Chelsea Manning, WikiLeaks has been the subject of widespread attention and debate.
In this collection WikiLeaks: From Popular Culture to Political Economy, influential and innovative scholars speculate about why and how WikiLeaks does (or does not) matter. These essays demonstrate that WikiLeaks and their activities are relevant to more areas of academic study than have been addressed to date.
