Summary
In its earliest days, the Internet seemed to all of us to be an unqualified good -- It was a way to share information, increase productivity, and experience new freedoms and diversions. Alexander Klimburg was a member of the idealistic generation that came of age with the Internet. Two decades later, he -- and all of us -- have been forced to confront the reality that an invention that was once a utopian symbol of connection has evolved into an unprecedented weapon and means of domination. Klimburg is a leading voice in the international dialogue on the implications of this dangerous shift, and in The Darkening Web, he presents the consequences of states' aspirations to project power in cyberspace. Cyberspace, Klimburg contends, is facilitating the emergence of a new dimension of political conflict. This world is marked by the rise of not only cyber warfare and hacking, but also information warfare, propaganda and covert influencing. At risk is not only our personal data or electrical grid, but the Internet as we know it today -- and with it the very existence of democratic societies. With a skilful blend of anecdote and argument, Klimburg brings us face-to-face with the range of threats the struggle for cyberspace presents, revealing the extent to which the battle for control of the internet is as complex and perilous as the one surrounding nuclear weapons during the Cold War -- and quite possibly as dangerous for humanity as a whole
