Companions in Conflict by Penny Johnson

Companions in Conflict: Animals in Occupied Palestine by Penny Johnson
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 10.7MB
Overview: An award-winning author explores the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a surprising lens: the animals trying to survive in occupied hotspotsIn August of 2016, Israeli police officers arrested a Palestinian donkey in the Jordan Valley. The charge? Not having the correct paperwork. It’s an image as sad (and strangely common) as it is symbolic: No creature great or small is free from the absurdities of the Occupied Territories.

Companions in Conflict is a surprising investigation into the deeply intertwined lives of the region’s human and animal populations: From camel beauty contests, to a heard of "illegal" Palestinain cows hunted down by Israeli soldiers; from a hyena in a wolf pack that becomes a symbol of Middle East peace, to the tragic story of the now-taxidermied inhabitants of the West Bank’s only zoo-who were frightened to death by Israeli explosive devices. Drawing on three decades of living in the region, Penny Johnson’s insightful writing reveals what these and many other animals’ fates tell us about the current state of Israel and Palestine. What’s more, looking forward, she introduces a new generation of environmental activists to us, who represent the region’s best hope for conservation, collaboration, and justice for all creatures.

Understanding Cyber Conflict by George Perkovich +

Understanding Cyber Conflict: 14 Analogies by George Perkovich, Ariel E. Levite
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 314 MB
Overview: Cyberweapons and the possibility of cyber conflict – including interference in foreign political campaigns, industrial sabotage, attacks on infrastructure, and combined military campaigns – require policymakers, scholars, and citizens to rethink 21st-century warfare. Yet because cyber capabilities are so new and continually developing, there is little agreement about how they will be deployed, how effective they can be, and how they can be managed.
Authored by leading scholars, the 14 case studies in this volume will help policymakers, scholars, and students make sense of contemporary cyber conflict through historical analogies to past military technological problems.
The chapters are divided into three groups. The first – "What Are Cyber Weapons Like?" – examines the characteristics of cyber capabilities and how their use for intelligence gathering, signaling, and precision striking compares with earlier technologies for such missions. The second section – "What Might Cyber Wars Be Like?" – explores how lessons from several wars since the early 19th century, including the World Wars, could apply – or not apply – to cyber conflict in the 21st century. The final section – "What Is Preventing and/or Managing Cyber Conflict Like?" – offers lessons from past cases of managing threatening actors and technologies.
