Dublin Core

Title

Cyberwars: Espionage on the Internet

Description

Main Argument: Guisnel argues that security risks are real and should not be taken lightly. However, he warns that in the name of “security” against terrorists or other adversaries might violate civil liberties and freedom of speech. He offers steps for readers to prepare for such event in order to keep personal privacy.

Style: Popular

Sourcing: No scholarly sources. No bibliography.

Structure: Background, 10 chapters, Epilogue

Context in discussion: Guisnel raises important questions that policymakers and U.S. citizens should be thinking about. Since there is debate about implementing Internet IDs and censoring content in order to fight cyber threats, his skeptical view is relevant today just as much (if not more) than it was written in 1999.

Context in website: Marc Rotenberg has similar views on how the “free” Internet may have if cyber fears become too great. His testimony compliments the content of Guisnel’s book to get the public thinking about how laws and policies affect their personal and professional lives.
