Reviews

'The authors do a fine job of exploring the threats to security that accompany society's ever-increasing reliance on the Internet. We have entered an era of ambiguity about the balance between benefits and threats in this realm, and policy makers who must address security challenges in the cyberworld will find much to value in this volume's thorough analysis of crucial issues.' Philip Seib, University of Southern California, USA 'A welcome and wide ranging examination of the many security risks and challenges facing national and international institutions in the Information Age.' Sy Goodman, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA '...[the volume] makes an important and timely contribution to understanding the security effects of information technology, and its inferences would benefit both the student and practitioner of security studies and international relations.' Political Studies Review '...raises the spectre and the difficulty of analyzing the threats and risks in cyberspace to the relationship of the Internet with the notion of the cyber-state...this book advances the argument in important ways.' Communication and Research Trends
