Cyberspace is our interconnected information technology. It is also an area of continuous conflict.
A Fierce Domain: Conflict in Cyberspace, 1986 to 2012 by Jason Healey is a well researched, well history of how humanity is using cyberspace to seek to impose their will on others. It contains the lessons learned in previous episodes of our history.
This book is a first of its kind. It provides a comprehensive history of cyber conflict in a way that generates lessons learned from every major engagement. It identifies key issues for policy makers, and spells out clearly the difference between common myths and reality.
There is a great conflict underway right now. We want to be on the winning side. That will only be possible if our populace and policy makers are well educated on what we are up against. That is possible now, thanks to Healey.
