Dark Territory: The Secret History of Cyber War

"A e-book that grips, informs, and alarms, finely researched and lucidly comparable. " —John le Carré

As cyber-attacks dominate front-page information, as hackers subscribe to terrorists at the record of world threats, and as most sensible generals warn of a coming cyber conflict, few books are extra well timed and enlightening than darkish Territory: the key background of Cyber battle, by means of Slate columnist and Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Fred Kaplan.
Kaplan probes the interior corridors of the nationwide protection organization, the beyond-top-secret cyber devices within the Pentagon, the "information warfare" squads of the army prone, and the nationwide defense debates within the White apartment, to inform this never-before-told tale of the officials, policymakers, scientists, and spies who devised this new kind of battle and who've been planning—and (more frequently than humans be aware of) fighting—these wars for decades.

From the 1991 Gulf battle to conflicts in Haiti, Serbia, Syria, the previous Soviet republics, Iraq, and Iran, the place cyber conflict performed an important function, darkish Territory chronicles, in interesting element, a little-known prior that shines an unsettling mild on our destiny.

G. insurance companies) have a strong oversight role on firms through seats on supervisory boards and through continuing ownership or proxy-voting ties linking large public companies (Edwards and Fischer 1994; Vitols 2001). Companies can obtain bank loans for longterm investments that assets can be easily secured, such as land, capital investments, and merger and acquisition activity. Banks within CMEs can adopt a longer-term focus in part because they know that firms are able to offer long-term commitments to employees and other stakeholders to the firm, and can often closely monitor the status of their investments through seats on the supervisory board or other direct contacts.

Sustained patterns of vocational training within firms, consensual decision-making, long-term employment, and patient finance are all linked to the systematic exploitation of particular technologies to a wide variety of niche markets in a number of medium technologies characteristic of many engineering and chemical markets, a strategy Streeck (1992) labels “diversified quality production” or “DQP”. We will explore this argument in more detail in the context of Germany and argue that some segments of the biotechnology and software industries may in fact have technological regimes favoring incremental innovation; if so, we should expect CMEs like Germany to develop competitive strengths in such subsectors.

Relatively low entry barriers within consumer markets and extremely high long-term profitability for successful firms in network or business impacted segments leads to intensive innovation races across standard software firms. This generates high-technological volatility as rivals race to introduce new 19 Varieties of capitalism and innovation features or “functionality” into their products, or to invent new product categories. While a few dominant application software providers have grown into large complex organizations such as Microsoft (see Cusamano and Selby 1995), most standard software firms are small entrepreneurial firms.
