Jake RigginsHON 20203/02/2017Reading Response to Greenwald’s No Place to HideGlenn Greenwald is a former Constitutional lawyer who is an avid pro-privacy supporter in a world where this kind of attitude rather unpopular. In his book, No Place to Hide,Greenwaldtook full advantage of his opportunity to release shocking information made public by Edward Snowden to the world and to display his strong viewpoints to the reader. Summary:The first half of the book covers a vast array of Greenwald’s personal experiences from his first contact with “Cincinnatus” which is the name Edward Snowden first identified himself as, to meeting with him privately in China where he presented Greenwald with a vast pool of evidence against a legion of secret organizations and programs who were invading the privacy ofnot only millions of Americans, but millions of people all over the world. The latter half of the book is filled with Greenwald’s analyzation of Snowden’s findings and revelations. In the chapter titled, “Collect It All,” Greenwald combs through the many programs and secret organizations of the United States Government and shows the reader the purpose of these programs and the volume of the people affected by them. Greenwald spends the final couple chapters giving his opinions on the issue of privacy and convincing the reader that privacy is, and should be a valuable and sentimental thing.Greenwald spends a great deal of time talking about the value and the overall desire of privacy throughout the book. This is a big deal, in my opinion, because there are so many people who do not find value in their privacy, or even worse, they willingly sacrifice their privacy.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
