Was he a hero or a traitor? Daniel Ellsberg is one of history’s prime examples of how a whistleblower can be seen as both the best and worst of people. Working at the Pentagon, Ellsberg was involved in the American government’s attempt to justify its involvement in the Vietnam War; seven years later, he leaked documents that did the exact opposite. Sheinkin examines what changed Ellsberg from an instrument of the government into a crusader for the antiwar movement. Ages 11 – 14
