With forensic detail, Andrew Fowler provides a ringside seat at the epic battle that has made Julian Assange public enemy number one of the United States. Since it was first published, his book The Most Dangerous Man in the World has been translated and distributed in countries from China to Romania and the USA to Russia.

Now, through recent interviews and the latest research, Fowler tells the extraordinary story of how a computer hacker turned multi-award winning journalist and publisher, with a turbulent childhood became holed up in London's Ecuador Embassy for seven years, and is now battling extradition to the United States from the notorious maximum security Belmarsh prison in London. Pentagon Papers whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg was called The Most Dangerous Man in America by the Nixon White House. In the Trump era, Ellsberg says Julian Assange, whose new journalism has made him powerful enemies, should be proud to be The Most Dangerous Man in the World.
