Peace, War and Computers
Routledge – 2005 – 244 pages
Computers are at the heart of war as we know it and this visionary overview of cyber war in the twenty-first century studies how electronics have changed the way we fight. Using informatics and chaos theory, this is a disarming, yet enthralling read.
"'Chris Hables Gray takes us to the edge, looks into the abyss, and where others wish us only to see fear, hatred, and a permanent state of war, he finds hope. Going beyond pure critique, Gray brilliantly dissects the morbidity of the TerrorWars and concisely maps out a netcentric course of action for a viable peace.'
." -- James Der Derian, author of Virtuous War and producer of After 9/11
