Overview

A multidisciplinary view of Information Technology as it is used by governments and criminal organizations alike.Why buy a multi-billion-dollar satellite and go to extreme lengths to try to avoid governmental detection when you can just buy a bit of airtime and send one of several million messages going out at any given time?—from Bombs and Bandwidth Information Technology (IT) has become central to the way governments, businesses, social movements and even terrorist and criminal organizations pursue their increasingly globalized objectives. With the emergence of the Internet and new digital technologies, traditional boundaries are increasingly irrelevant, and traditional concepts—from privacy to surveillance, vulnerability, and above all, security—need to be reconsidered. In the post-9/11 era of "homeland security," the relationship between IT and security has acquired a new and pressing relevance. Bombs and Bandwidth, a project of the Social Science Research Council, assembles leading scholars in a range of disciplines to explore the new nature of IT-related threats, the new power structures emerging around IT, and the ethical and political implications arising from this complex and important field. Contributors include: Ralf Bendrath, Michael Dartnell, Robert J. Deibert, Dorothy Denning, Chris Hables Gray, Rose Kadende-Kaiser, Susan Landau, Robert Latham, Timothy Lenoir, Martin Libicki, Carolyn Nordstrom, Rafal Rohozinski, Marc Rotenberg, Janice Gross Stein, Rachel Yould.
