Description
 
After being forcibly removed from the Ecuadorian Embassy, Julian Assange is now
in a high security prison in London where he faces extradition to the United
States and imprisonment for the rest of his life.

The charges Assange faces are a major threat to press freedom. James Goodale,
who represented the New York Times in the Pentagon Papers case, commented:
“The charge against Assange for ‘conspiring’ with a source is the most
dangerous I can think of with respect to the First Amendment in all my years
representing media organizations.”

It is critical now to build support for Assange and prevent his delivery into
the hands of the Trump administration. That is the urgent purpose of this book.
A wide range of distinguished contributors, many of them in original pieces,
here set out the story of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, the importance of their
work, and the dangers for us all in the persecution they face. In Defense of
Julian Assange is a vivid, vital intervention into one of the most important
political issues of our day.
