Summary "As cyber-attacks dominate front-page news, as hackers displace terrorists on the list of global threats, and as top generals warn of a coming cyber war, few books are more timely and enlightening than Dark Territory: The Secret History of Cyber War, by Slate columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Fred Kaplan. 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 tell this never-before-told story 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. 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, in fascinating detail, a little-known past that shines an unsettling light on our future"-- Provided by publisher. "The never-before-told story of the computer scientists and the NSA, Pentagon, and White House policymakers who invented and employ the wars of the present and future--the cyber wars where every country can be a major power player and every hacker a mass destroyer, as reported by a Pulitzer Prize--winning security and defense journalist"-- Provided by publisher.

Title The South Side : a portrait of Chicago and American segregation

New to the Collection - 10 hours 3 min ago
Author Moore, Natalie Y., author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "Mayors Richard M. Daley and Rahm Emanuel have touted and promoted Chicago as a "world class city." The skyscrapers kissing the clouds, the billion-dollar Millennium Park, Michelin-rated restaurants, pristine lake views, fabulous shopping, vibrant theater scene, downtown flower beds and stellar architecture tell one story. Yet, swept under the rug is the stench of segregation that compromises Chicago. The Manhattan Institute dubs Chicago as one of the most segregated big cities in the country. Though other cities - including Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Baltimore - can fight over that mantle, it's clear that segregation defines Chicago. And unlike many other major U.S. cities, no one race dominates. Chicago is divided equally into black, white, and Latino, each group clustered in their various turfs. In this intelligent and highly important narrative, Chicago-native Natalie Moore shines a light on contemporary segregation on the South Side of Chicago through reported essays, showing the life of these communities through the stories of people who live in them. The South Side shows the important impact of Chicago's historic segregation - and the ongoing policies that keep it that way"-- Provided by publisher.

Format: Books
Summary "Perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell, Steve Berry, Naomi Novik, and Harry Turtledove, Alan Smale's gripping alternate history series imagines a world in which the Roman Empire has survived long enough to invade North America in 1218. Now the stunning story carries hero Gaius Marcellinus deeper into the culture of an extraordinary people--whose humanity, bravery, love, and ingenuity forever change his life and destiny. In A.D. 1218, Praetor Gaius Marcellinus is ordered to conquer North America and turning it into a Roman province. But outside the walls of the great city of Cahokia, his legion is destroyed outright; Marcellinus is the only one spared. In the months and years that follow, Marcellinus comes to see North America as his home and the Cahokians as his kin. He vows to defend these proud people from any threat, Roman or native. After successfully repelling an invasion by the fearsome Iroqua tribes, Marcellinus realizes that a weak and fractured North America won't stand a chance against the returning Roman army. Worse, rival factions from within threaten to tear Cahokia apart just when it needs to be most united and strong. Marcellinus is determined to save the civilization that has come to mean more to him than the empire he once served. But to survive the swords of Roma, he first must avert another Iroqua attack and bring the Cahokia together. Only with the hearts and souls of a nation at his back can Marcellinus hope to know triumph. Advance praise for Eagle in Exile "[Eagle in Exile] has the pace and scope of a Michener or Uris epic. Smale's action scenes slash across page after page, intense and bloody. Grab your dagger and sword, for the battle continues."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Praise for Alan Smale's Clash of Eagles "Epic, bloody, and hugely imaginative."--John Birmingham, author of the Dave vs. the Monsters series "Epic in its sweep, exciting in its narrative, and eyeball-kick-sharp in its details."--Nancy Kress, Nebula and Hugo award-winning author of Beggars in Spain "Authoritatively researched and compellingly told, Clash of Eagles is a modern masterpiece of what-if speculation."--Stephen Baxter, Philip K. Dick Award-winning author of The Time Ships "Alan Smale has done remarkable work with the world-building in Clash of Eagles. Yet what follows is more than a standard clash-of-cultures yarn, for there are other forces in play in this alternate North America. Can the determination and ingenuity of one man change the fate of a continent? I'm eager to find out."--Harry Turtledove, New York Times bestselling author of How Few Remain "Just when it seems there is nothing new in [alternate] history comes this debut."--Library Journal (starred review) "Intriguingly original."--Kirkus Reviews"-- Provided by publisher. "The follow-up novel to Clash of Eagles. In the two years since losing his legion on the banks of the mighty Mizipi River, Gaius has integrated himself into Cahokian society, made friends among his former adversaries, and thwarted two invasions by their longtime foe, the Iroqua. But with a Roman invasion looming on the horizon and a coup brewing in Cahokia, Gaius and company find themselves fighting one battle after another, all while trying to unite the peoples of North America to stand against Roma. Can one man sway the fate of a continent?"-- Provided by publisher.

Title One child : the story of China's most radical experiment

New to the Collection - 10 hours 3 min ago
Author Fong, Mei, author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "When Communist Party leaders adopted the one-child policy in 1980, they hoped curbing birth-rates would help lift China's poorest and increase the country's global stature. But at what cost? Now, as China closes the book on the policy after more than three decades, it faces a population grown too old and too male, with a vastly diminished supply of young workers. Mei Fong has spent years documenting the policy's repercussions on every sector of Chinese society. In One Child, she explores its true human impact, traveling across China to meet the people who live with its consequences. Their stories reveal a dystopian reality: unauthorized second children ignored by the state, only-children supporting aging parents and grandparents on their own, villages teeming with ineligible bachelors, and an ungoverned adoption market stretching across the globe."--Amazon.com
