When Wikileaks first came to prominence in 2010 by releasing millions of top secret State Department cables, the world saw for the first time what the US really thought about national leaders, friendly dictators, and supposed allies. It also discovered the dark truths of national policies, human rights violations, covert operations, and cover ups done in your name. The Wikileaks Files is the first volume that uses experts to collate and analyse the most important cables and show their historic importance. An essential book for anyone who is interested in America's role in the world and the history of the 21st century. The book reveals previously overlooked secrets from the cables, like what the State department really thought about Putin and Prime Minister Medvedev, sometimes referred to as Batman and Robin; why the New York Times edited out references to imprisoned Ukrainian President Timochenko; how the secret service collected everything from airline miles data to credit card details from UN diplomats; and evidence of the cover up of widespread executions of Iraqis at the hands of US Military during occupation. Regional expert contributors include- Tim Shorrock, Richard Heydarian, Russ Wellen, Conn Hallinan, Michael Busch, Robert Prince,Stephen Zunes, Peter Certo, Francis Nesbitt, Phyllis Bennis, and Gareth Porter
