Title

Cyberwar, Netwar and the Revolution in Military Affairs (part 1)

Description

Main Argument: This book argues that conflict and security have radically changed in the 21st century due to the Cold War, 9/11 and War on Terror. The authors argue that technology is affecting war, as well as people’s conceptions of war.

Style: Academic

Sourcing: Scholarly sources

Structure: 10 chapters addressing history, information warfare, military, political science and technology/engineering

Context in discussion: This book focuses largely on military and political science. Many books and articles generally speak about how technology has changed or is changing society, war, etc. However, this book focuses on how technology affects war specifically and adds in political science.

Context in website: Some speakers discuss how cyber threats can significantly affect war, so the Speech Collection will provide more military perspectives on technology.
