Akta Snowden


Edward Snowden, podle mnohých jeden ze skutečných hrdinů dnešní doby. Člověk, který se rozhodl změnit celý svůj život, aby mohl milionům lidí podat informace o utajovaném zneužívání moci zpravodajskými agenturami. Podle některých názorů je to naopak vlastizrádce, který by měl strávit zbytek života ve vězení. Kdo je však ve skutečnosti Edward Snowden? Jaká je jeho motivace, jak se odvíjel celý příběh vynesení přísně tajných informací, které otřásly nejen občanskou veřejností, ale i politickou scénou USA a západní Evropy? Odpovědi na tyto, ale i další otázky naleznete v knize renomovaného novináře Luka Hardinga, jenž stvořil fakty nabitou publikaci, která se čte jako napínavý špionážní román.

WikiLeaks-akták


Julian Assange: Internetes Messiás vagy kiberterrorista? Információs szabadságharcos vagy szexbűnök elkövetője? Ki az az ember, aki a történelem eddigi legnagyobb kiszivárogtatása mögött áll? Julian Assange egyike a legkülönösebb figuráknak, akikből

Tajná dohoda


Volby ve Spojených státech v listopadu 2016 otřásly americkou i mezinárodní scénou. Jejich výsledek šokoval nejen poraženou Hillary Clintonovou, ale i vítěze voleb Donalda Trumpa. Zaskočil též americké spojence v NATO. Překvapil i Kreml a snad jen tam se radovali. Podle Dmitrije Peskova prý kremelští oslavovali Trumpův triumf pitkou, která trvala tři dny.
Od vstupu Trumpa do Bílého domu už uplynul víc než rok, ale stále není jasné, jak mohl právě on vyhrát. Hardingova kniha přináší existenčně důležité informace. Částecně i díky ní dnes nikdo na Západě nepochybuje o ruské zpravodajské operaci ve prospěch Donalda Trumpa. A v racionálních momentech o ní ve skrytu své duše nepochybuje ani on sám.

Very Expensive Poison


1 November 2006. Alexander Litvinenko is brazenly poisoned in central London. Twenty two days later he dies, killed from the inside. The poison? Polonium; a rare, lethal and highly radioactive substance. His crime? He had made some powerful enemies in Russia. Based on the best part of a decade's reporting, as well as extensive interviews with those closest to the events (including the murder suspects), and access to trial evidence, Luke Harding's A Very Expensive Poison is the definitive inside story of the life and death of Alexander Litvinenko. Harding traces the journey of the nuclear poison across London, from hotel room to nightclub, assassin to victim; it is a deadly trail that seemingly leads back to the Russian state itself. Harding argues that Litvinenko's assassination marked the beginning of the deterioration of Moscow's relations with the west and a decade of geo-political disruptions - from the war in Ukraine, a civilian plane shot down, at least 7,000 dead, two million people displaced and a Russian president's defiant rejection of a law-based international order. With Russia's covert war in Ukraine and annexation of the Crimea, Europe and the US face a new Cold War, but with fewer certainties. This is a shocking real-life revenge tragedy with corruption and subterfuge at every turn, and walk-on parts from Russian mafia, the KGB, MI6 agents, dedicated British coppers, Russian dissidents. At the heart of this all is an individual and his family torn apart by a ruthless crime.

Mafia State : How One Reporter Became an Enemy of the Brutal New Russia


In 2007, Luke Harding arrived in Moscow to take up a new job as a correspondent for the British newspaper the Guardian. Within months, mysterious agents from Russia's Federal Security Service - the successor to the KGB - had broken into his flat. He found himself tailed by men in cheap leather jackets, bugged, and even summoned to Lefortovo, the KGB's notorious prison.

The break-in was the beginning of an extraordinary psychological war against the journalist and his family. Vladimir Putin's spies used tactics developed by the KGB and perfected in the 1970s by the Stasi, East Germany's sinister secret police. This clandestine campaign burst into the open in 2011 when the Kremlin expelled Harding from Moscow.

Luke Harding's Mafia State gives a unique, personal and compelling portrait of today's Russia, two decades after the end of communism, that reads like a spy thriller.

Shadow State : Murder, Mayhem and Russias Remaking of the West


No terrorist group has deployed a nerve agent in a civilian area or used a radioactive mini-bomb in London. The Kremlin has done both. Shadow State is a gripping investigative account of how Russia's spies helped elect Donald Trump, backed Brexit, murdered enemies and threatened the very basis of western democracy.

The operatives come in disguise. They pose as tourists, journalists and businessmen. Utterly ruthless, sometimes bungling and always ambitious, they roam from Salisbury to Helsinki, Ukraine to the Central African Republican, London to Washington. SHADOW STATE is a riveting and alarming investigation into those spies and the way Russia has used them to wage an increasingly bold war in the UK and beyond.

The Kremlin has attempted to reshape politics in their own mould; the future of Western democracy is at stake as a result

Collusion


MOSCOW, July 1987. Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump visits Soviet Russia for the first time at the invitation of the government.

LONDON, December 2016. Luke Harding meets former MI6 officer Christopher Steele to discuss the president-elect’s connections with Russia. Harding follows two leads; money and sex.

WASHINGTON, January 2017. Steele’s explosive dossier alleges that the Kremlin has been 'cultivating, supporting, and assisting' Trump for years and that they have compromising information about him. Trump responds on twitter, 'FAKE NEWS.'

In Collusion, award-winning journalist Luke Harding reveals the true nature of Trump’s decades-long relationship with Russia and presents the gripping inside story of the dossier. It features exclusive new material and draws on sources from the intelligence community.

Harding tells an astonishing story of offshore money, sketchy real-estate deals, a Miss Universe Pageant, mobsters, money laundering, hacking and Kremlin espionage. He shines a light on powerful Russian players like Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya and Sergey Kislyak, whose motivations and instructions may have come from Vladimir Putin himself. The special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, has already indicted several of the American protagonists, including Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort. More charges are likely as the crisis engulfs Trump’s administration.

This book gets to the heart of the biggest political scandal of the modern era. Russia is reshaping the world order to its advantage: this is something that should trouble us all
