Advance praise for Dark Territory:

"A book that grips, informs and alarms, finely researched and lucidly related." — John le Carré

"A fascinating account of the people and organizations leading the way towards a cyber war future.” Dorothy Denning, author, Information Warfare and Security, and First inductee, National Cyber Security Hall of Fame

Dark Territory is a remarkable piece of reporting. Fred Kaplan has illuminated not merely the profound vulnerabilities of our nation to cyber warfare, but why it has taken so long for our policy-makers to translate indifference into concern and concern into action. This is a vitally important book by a meticulous journalist.”
Ted Koppel, author, Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath

“Everyone has heard the term ‘cyber warfare.’ Very few people could explain exactly what it means and why it matters. Dark Territory solves that problem with an account that is both fascinating and authoritative. Fred Kaplan has put the people, the technologies, the dramatic turning points, and the strategic and economic stakes together in a way no author has done before.”
James Fallows, National correspondent, The Atlantic

“An eye-opening account of the dawn of cyber warfare… An important, disturbing, and gripping history arguing convincingly that, as of 2015, no defense exists against a resourceful cyberattack.” Starred review, Kirkus Reviews
