A Machine They re Secretly Building Book Description:

'I want you to know what's happening...' From what might be a news desk, an office, a bedroom, a bunker under a mountain or a theatre, two people – reporters, senators, freedom fighters, or just... well... concerned citizens like you – think about what it is to speak up, speak out, blow the whistle and lift the veil. A Machine They're Secretly Building charts a course from the Top Secret secrets of WWI intelligence (via the moon, 1972's Chess World Championships, a disco in Oklahoma and the cafeteria at CERN) through to 9/11, the erosion of privacy, Edward Snowden and the terror of a future that might already be upon us. It is about how we got to the point where our governments are spying on us and how that's changing who we are.
