"Cyber War Will Not Take Place." Thomas Rid. Hurst. April 2013. --- In 2005, the U.S. Air Force boasted it would now fly, fight, and win in cyberspace, the ‘fifth domain’ of warfare. This book takes stock to consider whether or not cyber war is a real threat. Thomas Rid argues that the focus on war and winning distracts from the real challenge of cyberspace: non-violent confrontation that may rival or even replace violence in surprising ways. Tracing the most significant hacks and attacks, and exploring case studies from the world of computer espionage and weaponised code, this is an undoubtedly impressive work, writes Julia Muravska.
