About the Author

Daniel Ellsberg is a former American military analyst employed by the RAND Corporation who in 1971 released the Pentagon Papers, a top-secret history of U.S. activities during the Vietnam War compiled at the direction of Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, to The New York Times. The release awakened the American people to how much they had been deceived by their own government about the war. Since the end of the Vietnam War, Ellsberg has been a lecturer, writer and activist on the dangers of the nuclear era, wrongful U.S. interventions and the urgent need for patriotic whistleblowing. He is the author of three books: Papers on the War (1971), Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers (2002), and Risk, Ambiguity and Decision (2001). In December 2006 he was awarded the 2006 Right Livelihood Award, known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize,” in Stockholm, Sweden.
