Editorial Reviews

Voya Reviews, April 2014 (Vol. 36, No. 1) - Hilary Crew
This title is an excellent addition to the Opposing Viewpoints series and especially relevant in view of current news events. Viewpoints in the title are written by those with specialized knowledge and organized thematically into four chapters. The debates in Hackers And Hacking range from assessing the threat of cyberwars to national security to opposing viewpoints on political activist hackers and on the role of ethical hackers in testing corporate cybersecurity. Several essays address WikiLeaks. Others center on effective strategies to combat hacking, with opposing views on the roles of government and private industry. Well-written and researched with excellent supplemental readings, this title will be valuable resource for junior and high school students. (Opposing Viewpoints) Reviewer: Hilary Crew; Ages 15 to 18.
