Two books I am looking forward to reading in 2016.

The first book is by the Pulitzer Prize winning director of CitizenFour who was responsible for the Snowden leaks along with journalist Glenn Greenwald. It feautures many contributors but I am most looking forward to those of Snowden himself and Kate Crawford.

“a “how-to” guide for living in a society that collects extraordinary amounts of information on individuals”

Release date is February 23rd.

Astro Noise: A Survival Guide for Living Under Total Surveillance

 

The second book is from the former editor of adbusters magazine and one of the prominent figures in the Occupy movement: Micah White.

“Activism is at a cross-roads : Innovation or irrelevance”

Looks like this will be a playbook with the goal of revamping revolution. I look forward to getting my hands on this.

Release date is March 15
