“An important, disturbing, and gripping history” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), the never-before-told story of the computer scientists and the NSA, Pentagon, and White House policymakers who invent and employ cyber wars—where every country can be a major power player and every hacker a mass destroyer. In June 1983, President Reagan watched the movie War Games, in which a teenager unwittingly hacks the Pentagon, and asked his top general if the scenario was plausible. The general said it was. This set in motion the first presidential directive on computer security. From the 1991 Gulf War to conflicts in Haiti, Serbia, Syria, the former Soviet republics, Iraq, and Iran, where cyber warfare played a significant role, Dark Territory chronicles a little-known past that shines an unsettling light on our future. Fred Kaplan probes the inner corridors of the National Security Agency, the beyond-top-secret cyber units in the Pentagon, the “information warfare” squads of the military services, and the national security debates in the White House to reveal the details of the officers, policymakers, scientists, and spies who devised this new form of warfare and who have been planning—and (more often than people know) fighting—these wars for decades. “An eye-opening history of our government’s efforts to effectively manage our national security in the face of the largely open global communications network established by the World Wide Web….Dark Territory is a page-turner [and] consistently surprising” (The New York Times).

Star-crossed love, supernatural evil, and martial arts meet at the abandoned tracks in the deceptively quaint village of Middleburg . . . When Ignacio Torrez moved from the rough streets of Los Angeles to a small town dead smack in the middle of nowhere, he never expected to find himself in the midst of a gang war. But, he soon learns, these are no ordinary gangs. The wealthy, preppie Toppers on one side of the tracks and the working-class Flatliners on the other adhere to a strict code of honor and use their deadly martial arts skills, taught to them by the wise Master Chin, to battle one another for pride, territory, and survival. When Raphael, leader of the Flatliners, falls forAimee, a Topper girl, the rival gangs prepare for a bloody, all-out war. The only hope for peace between them lies within the dark territory of the abandoned train tunnels where the tracks cross. Under the direction of the mysterious and frightening Magician, the awesome power within the crossing sends the rivals on a terrifying mystical quest to fight the malevolent force that threatens the existence of Middleburg—and quite possibly, the world.

With a severe winter storm on the horizon, Signy drives Lizzy and her son out of the city. Suddenly, she finds the police hot on their tail, and when Lizzy’s erratic behavior propels them into further danger, Signy begins to suspect that her new ward is not the victim she claims to be. Meanwhile, Signy’s PTSD-stricken mentor, Grace, investigates Lizzy’s husband. But Lizzy’s husband is hiding secrets of his own, and soon Grace finds herself out of her depth. As the treacherous blizzard closes in, the entire operation spirals out of control. Isolated and relying on nothing but her instincts, Signy is confronted with a choice that will force her to risk not only her own life, but those of the people she cares about most.

Dass Cyberverbrechen und Cyberwar keine bloß virtuellen Gefahren mehr sind, sickert erst allmählich ins öffentliche und politische Bewusstsein. Als der Computerwurm »Conficker« im November 2008 auf die Welt losgelassen wurde, infizierte er binnen weniger Wochen Millionen von Computern weltweit. War er in ein System eingedrungen, konnte er dieses mit anderen verbinden und so ein Netzwerk bilden, das sich von außen kontrollieren ließ. Ein solch großes Botnetz ist theoretisch in der Lage, sämtliche Computernetzwerke zu überwältigen, ohne die heute unsere Banken, Telefone, Kraftwerke oder Flughäfen, ja sogar das Internet selbst kollabieren würden - mit unabsehbaren Folgen. War »Conficker« nur das Werkzeug von Cyberkriminellen oder gar eine reale militärische Waffe mit so nie dagewesenem Zerstörungspotenzial? Mark Bowden erzählt, wie in einem dramatischen Wettlauf Computerexperten alles daransetzen, den brandgefährlichen Wurm auszuschalten. Packend beschreibt er einen nach wie vor völlig unterschätzten Krieg, der buchstäblich unter unseren Fingerspitzen auf der Tastatur ausgefochten wird.

«Stellt euch vor, ich bin fort» wurde in der englischsprachigen Presse «atemraubend» genannt, «überwältigend und herzzerreißend», wurde als «Literatur höchsten Ranges» gefeiert und für den Pulitzer Preis, den National Book Award und den National Book Critics Circle Award nominiert. Ein moderner Familienroman in der Tradition einer welthaltigen und weltläufigen US-Literatur. Alles beginnt mit einem Unglück auf einer Landpartie in Maine. Nein, früher: Es beginnt in den 1960er Jahren in London, als die junge Amerikanerin Margaret erfährt, dass John, ihr Verlobter, nicht einfach verschwunden, sondern manisch-depressiv in eine psychiatrische Klinik eingewiesen worden ist. Vor die Wahl gestellt, entscheidet sie sich für ein Leben an seiner Seite, ein Leben mit seiner Krankheit. Was daraus folgt, ist die Geschichte einer Familie über zwei Generationen, die Geschichte einer erblichen bipolaren Störung, einer mal glanzvollen und häufiger noch prekären Existenz, durchzogen von den Spuren eines großen Verlusts. Adam Haslett erzählt von Mutterliebe und Geschwisterbanden mit derselben Glaubwürdigkeit und Präzision wie vom Hummerfischen, von Clonazepam oder Funk, Techno und House. «Stellt euch vor, ich bin fort» ist ein Meisterwerk des psychologischen Realismus, genauso einfühlsam wie einfallsreich, ein Roman, der unseren Blick auf die Menschen, die uns am wichtigsten sind, dauerhaft verändern kann.

Bereits in seinen ersten Artikeln über die NSA-Affäre brachte Glenn Greenwald das ganze Ausmaß der Massenüberwachung im digitalen Zeitalter ans Licht. Seine Berichterstattung, für die er mit dem Pulitzer-Preis ausgezeichnet wurde, löste international ein politisches Erdbeben aus. In seinem Buch deckt Greenwald anhand einer Fülle von brisanten Geheimdokumenten aus dem Archiv des Whistleblowers Edward Snowden die illegalen Praktiken der amerikanischen Geheimdienste auf. Alles und jeder wird ausgespäht, die Bevölkerung steht unter Kollektivverdacht. Meinungsfreiheit wird im Namen der Sicherheit unterdrückt, und es gibt keine Privatsphäre mehr – nirgends.

"Mit der Erzählung »Herz der Finsternis« gelangte Joseph Conrad zu Weltruhm. Der ungewöhnlich symbolreiche Text wird seit Erscheinen immer wieder aufs Neue interpretiert. Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts, der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Einheimischen. Die Reise auf dem Fluss entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes Unterbewusstsein, in ein finsteres Labyrinth von Lüge und Schuld. Marlow trifft auf den berüchtigten Elfenbeinhändler Kurtz. Dieser hat aus seinem Handelsposten ein Zentrum des Bösen gemacht und sich so eine machtvolle Position erschaffen, von der aus er scheinbar frei schalten und walten darf. »Herz der Finsternis« hat von Anfang an Leser und Interpreten fasziniert und hat bis heute nichts von seiner Aktualität eingebüßt. Der Stoff diente als Vorlage mehrerer Verfilmungen. Am bekanntesten: »Apocalypse Now« von Francis Ford Coppola mit Marlon Brando in der Rolle des charismatischen und geheimnisvollen Ausbeuters (diesmal) asiatischer Einheimischer während des Vietnamkrieges und »Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes« von Herzog mit Klaus Kinski als wahnsinnigen Eroberer und Vollstrecker eines ausbeuterischen, europäischen Kolonialismus in Süd-Amerika. 1.
