Recommended: A compilation of updated articles sourced from the US Air Force journal Strategic Studies Quarterly, this volume looks at cyberspace from a governmental and military standpoint, focusing on defense planning and strategy. Schaub (Univ. of Copenhagen) has edited a cohesive monograph on the topic, and contributors include an authoritative combination of academics and industry experts. While officially divided into two complementary sections, governance and operations, Understanding Cybersecurity seamlessly delves first into the philosophical issues of governing a realm "bound only by the limits of human innovation" (p. 3), then looks at the logistical issues of governance, and finally discusses defense and operational strategy. With cyberspace now considered the "fifth domain" of security operations by the US Department of Defense, it stands to reason that the largest portion of this monograph presents a militaristic view of managing cyber conflict and planning for cyber warfare. While many current works approach cybersecurity from an information technology perspective, this work provides a needed academic primer on the philosophy and logistics behind how governmental agencies are creating policy in regards to cybersecurity and securing infrastructures against cyber threats.--CHOICE
