Cyber Warfare: A Documentary and Reference Guide

Author(s): Springer, Paul;
Contributors: Springer, Paul;
Abstract:

Providing an invaluable introductory resource for students studying cyber warfare, this book highlights the evolution of cyber conflict in modern times through dozens of key primary source documents related to its development and implementation.

This meticulously curated primary source collection is designed to offer a broad examination of key documents related to cyber warfare, covering the subject from multiple perspectives. The earliest documents date from the late 20th century, when the concept and possibility of cyber attacks became a reality, while the most recent documents are from 2019. Each document is accompanied by an introduction and analysis written by an expert in the field that provides the necessary context for readers to learn about the complexities of cyber warfare.

The title's nearly 100 documents are drawn primarily but not exclusively from government sources and allow readers to understand how policy, strategy, doctrine, and tactics of cyber warfare are created and devised, particularly in the United States. Although the United States is the global leader in cyber capabilities and is largely driving the determination of norms within the cyber domain, the title additionally contains a small number of international documents. This invaluable work will serve as an excellent starting point for anyone seeking to understand the nature and character of international cyber warfare.


  • Covers in detail one of the defining forms of conflict of the 21st century—cyber warfare will significantly impact virtually every American citizen over the next two decades
  • Provides more than 90 primary source documents and matching analysis, allowing readers to investigate the underpinnings of cyber warfare
  • Enables readers to see the development of different concepts of cyber warfare through its chronological organization
  • Reflects the deep knowledge of an editor who is a noted expert in cyber warfare and has taught for the United States Air Force for more than a decade
