Review:

Library Journal "What the authors achieve in this work is to raise the profile of issues at the intersection of biology, technology, and government policy...Recommended to readers of governmental policy and the ethics of technology, who will be especially interested in this timely work." Kirkus "[An] ambitious...treatise regarding a particular terror of modern life: the increasing ubiquity of potential harm spawned by technological transformations... The authors raise fascinating questions... A thoughtful...Cassandra warning of great vulnerabilities disguised as gifts." Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO of New America "A book that manages to meld Hobbes, James Bond, science fiction, and Supreme Court decisions is a rare read. All the more impressive when it takes a complex set of urgent questions about the intersection of technology, security, and liberty, and offers insights and at least the beginnings of answers. Violence will be always with us, but its forms are changing in ways that challenge our ability to respond to and regulate it." Bruce Schneier, author of Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World "Benjamin Wittes and Gabriella Blum have written a compelling and provocative book about an important topic we have not adequately faced: managing catastrophic risk in a technologically advanced society. I strongly recommend this book even for people who will not agree with the authors' conclusions." Matthew Olsen, former Director of the National Counterterrorism Center "Benjamin Wittes and Gabriella Blum provide a compelling and sobering argument that the rapid advancement and proliferation of new technologies--from cyber to biotech to robotics--have fundamentally altered our security. We face the prospect of a Hobbesian state of nature, where each individual is at once a figure of great power and great vulnerability. In this indispensable book, Wittes and Blum then tackle the staggering implications: What does this mean for the social contract between citizen and state and our traditional notions of liberty, privacy, and security? In short, can the modern state keep us safe?" John Chris Inglis, former Deputy Director of the National Security Agency "A superb treatment of a roiling landscape brought on by breathtaking advances in technology and an onrush of global connectivity that easily outruns systems of governance and user expectations. A must read for those seeking a framework for understanding and action." Michael Chertoff, former United States Secretary of Homeland Security "In a globalized world facing widely distributed and technologically empowered threats, Benjamin Wittes and Gabriella Blum develop a new and compelling vision for a twenty-first century legal and security architecture. Political leaders, judges, and citizens will find important guidance in this book."

Descripción Basic Books, 2015. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: From drone warfare in the Middle East to the NSA digital spying, the U.S. government has harnessed the power of cutting-edge technology to terrible effect. But what happens when ordinary people have the same tools at their fingertips? Benjamin Wittes and Gabriella Blum reveal that this new world is nearly upon us. Soon, our neighbors will be building armed drones capable of firing a million rounds a minute and cooking powerful viruses based on recipes found online. These new technologies will threaten not only our lives but the very foundation of the modern nation state. Wittes and Blum counterintuitively argue that only by increasing surveillance and security efforts will national governments be able to protect their citizens. The Future of Violence is at once an account of these terrifying new threats and an authoritative blueprint for how we must adapt to survive. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0465089747

Descripción The Perseus Books Group, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From drone warfare in the Middle East to digital spying by the National Security Agency, the U.S. government has harnessed the power of cutting-edge technology to awesome effect. But what happens when ordinary people have the same tools at their fingertips? Advances in cybertechnology, biotechnology, and robotics mean that more people than ever before have access to potentially dangerous technologies--from drones to computer networks and biological agents--which could be used to attack states and private citizens alike. In The Future of Violence, law and security experts Benjamin Wittes and Gabriella Blum detail the myriad possibilities, challenges, and enormous risks present in the modern world, and argue that if our national governments can no longer adequately protect us from harm, they will lose their legitimacy. Consequently, governments, companies, and citizens must rethink their security efforts to protect lives and liberty. In this brave new world where many little brothers are as menacing as any Big Brother, safeguarding our liberty and privacy may require strong domestic and international surveillance and regulatory controls. Maintaining security in this world where anyone can attack anyone requires a global perspective, with more multinational forces and greater action to protect (and protect against) weaker states who do not yet have the capability to police their own people. Drawing on political thinkers from Thomas Hobbes to the Founders and beyond, Wittes and Blum show that, despite recent protestations to the contrary, security and liberty are mutually supportive, and that we must embrace one to ensure the other. The Future of Violence is at once an introduction to our emerging world--one in which students can print guns with 3-D printers and scientists manipulations of viruses can be recreated and unleashed by ordinary people--and an authoritative blueprint for how government must adapt in order to survive and protect us.
