Luke Harding

Luke Harding is a journalist, writer and award-winning correspondent with the Guardian. He has reported from Delhi, Berlin and Moscow and covered wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. Between 2007 and 2011 he was the Guardian's Moscow bureau chief. In February 2011 the Kremlin deported him from the country in the first case of its kind since the Cold War.

His new book "Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win" is being published on November 16th, 2017, simultaneously in ten countries. Collusion is a gripping, alarming exposé about the biggest political scandal of the modern era, in which Harding reveals the true nature of Trump's decades-long relationship with Moscow.

Drawing on exclusive new material, Harding tells the story of former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and his dossier. Collusion is an astonishing tale of offshore money, sketchy real-estate deals, a Miss Universe Pageant, mobsters, money laundering, hacking and Russian espionage. It includes the latest indictments by Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor investigating a scandal now engulfing the Trump administration.

Collusion is published by Vintage (USA), Guardian Faber (UK) Into Kustannus (Finland), Flammarion (France), Penguin Random House Germany, Nieuw Amsterdam (Holland), Mondadori (Italy), Penguin Random House Spain, Bonniers (Sweden) and Forlaget Press (Norway). Luke's books have been published in 30 languages.

His previous title was "A Very Expensive Poison: The Definitive Story of the Murder of Litvinenko and Russia's War with the West". It tells the story of Alexander Litvinenko, a critic of Vladimir Putin's, who was poisoned in 2006 in London by two Kremlin assassins. A public inquiry ruled that Russia's president 'probably approved' the murder operation, done with a cup of radioactive tea.

Luke's other titles include "The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man", and "Mafia State: How One Reporter Became an Enemy of the Brutal New Russia", which appeared in the US as "Expelled". "Snowden", a movie by Oliver Stone, based on Luke's book, was released in 2016.

Luke has co-authored two books with veteran reporter David Leigh: "The Liar: The Fall of Jonathan Aitken" (1997), nominated for the Orwell Prize; and "WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy" (2011). A DreamWorks film based on "WikiLeaks", "The Fifth Estate", starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Bruhl, came out in 2013.

Luke lives near London with his wife, the freelance journalist Phoebe Taplin, and their two children
