"Cypherpunks – liberdade e o futuro da internet" é o primeiro livro de Julian Assange, editor chefe e visionário por trás do Wikileaks, a ser publicado no Brasil com o selo da Boitempo. O livro é resultado de reflexões de Assange com um grupo de pensadores rebeldes e ativistas que atuam nas linhas de frente da batalha em defesa do ciberespaço (Jacob Appelbaum, Andy Müller-Maguhn e Jérémie Zimmermann). Apesar de a internet ter possibilitado verdadeiras revoluções no mundo todo, Assange prevê uma grande onda de repressão, a ponto de considerar a internet como uma possível ameaça à civilização humana devido à transferência do poder de populações inteiras a um complexo de agências de espionagem e seus aliados corporativos transnacionais, que não precisarão prestar contas pelos seus atos. O livro reflete sobre a vigilância em massa, censura e liberdade, mas o principal tema é o movimento cypherpunk, que defendem a utilização da criptografia e métodos similares como meios para provocar mudanças sociais e políticas. Fundado no início dos anos 1990, o movimento atingiu o auge de suas atividades durante as “criptoguerras” e após a censura da Internet em 2011 na Primavera Árabe. Desde junho deste ano, quando conseguiu asilo político na Embaixada do Equador em Londres temendo um revés diplomático que o entregasse às autoridades norte-americanas, Assange tem se dedicado a promover debates sobre a sociedade contemporânea com grandes intelectuais de todo o mundo e foi dentro deste contexto que escreveu Cypherpunks.

Rather than buy a shiny red sports car during middle age, one man took a humorous look at "growing up geek", and wrote an autobiography of his adventures in cybersecurity.
