    DescriptionThis unique project takes a socio-political approach to the widely debated issue of cyber-war, considering changing patterns of conflict, international diplomacy and governmental thinking in the face of the emerging threat. In examining whether an example of cyber war has yet been seen, a number of case studies are explored, from the explosion of a Soviet pipeline in the latter stages of the Cold War; to the 2007 attacks on Estonia; and the recent discovery of the Stuxnet worm in an Iranian nuclear plant. This highly accessible study attempts to demystify technical concepts, and will appeal to scholars, practitioners and interested observers involved in the study of this most contemporary of security threats.
