Stamina, bravery, brilliance - the great Ben Bradlee had it all — All the President's Men changed everyone's idea of what a good journalist should be. Henceforth, reporters would be scruffy anti-establishment rebels with film-star good looks. And editors would be growling craggy-faced titans - in turns terrifying, charming, inspiring - and fun. For most of the time, newspaper life isn't at all like that.

Alan Rusbridger on the Suez crisis — Fifty years ago, Britain and France went looking for an excuse to invade Egypt. The result was the Suez crisis. Most papers toed the patriotic line - but not the 'treacherous' Guardian and Observer. Alan Rusbridger opens a week of special reports on the showdown that marked the end of empire.

Alan Rusbridger: welcome to Guardian Membership — The Guardian is much more than a business - for almost 200 years we have dedicated our resources to the kind of public service journalism that recently won a Pulitzer prize. By becoming a member you'll help support that ideal and, no doubt, have a great time in doing so

Schubertiade review - quite simply, world-class music — You don't go to the Schubertiade just for Schubert. You don't even go just for the music. Imagine the front door of the Wigmore Hall opening not on to a busy, noisy West End street, but straight to a Scottish glen or lake. Music is almost a bonus.

I, Spy: Edward Snowden in Exile — Excerpt: "A year into his exile in Moscow, he feels less, not more, isolated. If he is depressed, he doesn't show it. And, at the end of seven hours of conversation, he refuses a beer.

Edward Snowden interview - the edited transcript — His time in Hong Kong That whole period was very carefully planned and orchestrated. There was no risk of compromise. I could have been screwed, but the fact that transmissions to journalists would be intercepted, that wasn't possible at all, unless the journalist intentionally passed this to the government.

I, spy: Edward Snowden in exile — iction and films, the nearest most of us knowingly get to the world of espionage, give us a series of reliable stereotypes. British spies are hard-bitten, libidinous he-men. Russian agents are thickset, low-browed and facially scarred. And defectors end up as tragic old soaks in Moscow, scanning old copies of the Times for news of the Test match.

Edward Snowden urges professionals to encrypt client communications — The NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, has urged lawyers, journalists, doctors, accountants, priests and others with a duty to protect confidentiality to upgrade security in the wake of the spy surveillance revelations. Snowden said professionals were failing in their obligations to their clients, sources, patients and parishioners in what he described as a new and challenging world.

Edward Snowden: 'If I end up in chains in Guantánamo I can live with that' - video interview — NSA whistleblower talks exclusively to the Guardian about whether he is a Russian spy, his likely fate if he returns to the US and the relevance of Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four in the age of Google
