Title

Cyberpower and National Security

Description

Main Argument: The goal of this book is to develop a coherent framework for how to address cybersecurity policy. The authors recognize that cyberspace offers new opportunities, but also poses challenges for internet users. Policy experts worked with government, think tank, industry and academic experts to address cyber issues. The book focuses on policies, but also addresses major cyber topics and like balancing civil liberties with security and developing international partnerships.

Style: Scholarly/Policy (collection of essays)

Sourcing: Scholarly sources, end-of-text footnotes (law reviews, scholarly journals, policy papers).

Structure: An edited volume containing 24 essays in 6 sections.

Context in discussion:This book provides extensive background information of the key issues surrounding cybersecurity. Many government reports and policy documents aim to change cybersecurity in the United States. However, this book provides a scholarly, academic perspective about policy which can shed light on more critical aspects of cybersecurity issues.

Context in website: This book would be a beneficial textbook for a class on cybersecurity because it provides background information, includes a variety of authors and engages in contemporary issues. The Education Directory also provides ideas for cyber courses.
