Livestream attacks launched by terrorists, the Twitter wars that have real consequences on people and events, the misinformation that create political effects. The new battlespace now involves tech, politics, and war that all happen on smartphones. There are some 2 billion mobile broadband subscriptions worldwide in 2013 and 6 billion in 2016. By 2020, that number is expected to reach 8 billion. This book is required reading for everyone living in a democracy and for people who want to understand the world we live in. Questions about privacy, truth, people’s roles and responsibilities in relation to the international conflict are explored. The authors try to look ahead and outline a new paradigm that will help readers understand and defend themselves against threats resulting from interconnectivity.
