3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dirty Little Secrets of the Twentieth Century provides a unique look at the past hundred years, exposing the myths, misinformation, and little-known truths behind what we've always assumed to be fact. In the same thoughtful but slightly irreverent style that has characterized the Dirty Little Secrets series. The popular author of Dirty Little Secrets, Dirty Little Secrets of World War II, and Dirty Little Secrets of the Vietnam War offers a comprehensive look at what really happened in our century, exposing the real stories behind what we've always assumed as fact. In a concise, easy-to-read format, Dunnigan divulges 150 of the biggest misconceptions about the twentieth century, organizing them under a broad range of such categories as the military, entertainment, technology, and politics. In the same thoughtful but slightly irreverent style that has characterized the Dirty Little Secrets series, Dunnigan explains why nongovernment organizations are actually more powerful than many governments and how the use of droids or combat robots has gone largely unnoticed. He reports the real reason the human life span is so much longer now, and reveals that this century has been as plagued as the Middle Ages by religious wars. And while we might think that wars or epidemics have been the primary cause of death in the twentieth century, Dunnigan reveals that more people have been killed by their own governments than any other means. Perfectly timed for the approach of a new millennium, Dirty Little Secrets of the Twentieth Century reveals the shape of the past and direction of our future through the best-kept secrets and surprises of the century

6 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Business and war: both are forms of conflict, and both have more in common than people think. Business, like war, is the art of outdoing the competition. Businesses, like armies, need to practice strategic thinking and understand the nature of competitive conflict. CEOs devise business plans to win in the marketplace; generals use strategic thinking to win wars. The Way of the Warrior reveals the management lessons of history's finest twelve military leaders, including: Alexander the Great, on having vision; Genghis Khan, on quick decisions; Julius Caesar, on communication; Napoleon, on managing change; Ulysses S. Grant, on the art of the turnaround; Douglas MacArthur, on coping with disaster; and Norman Schwarzkopf, on building alliances. The management hubris of these men is directly applicable in today's business world.Comprehensive, insightful, and extremely accessible, The Way of the Warrior won't show you how to call in air strikes on the competition, but it will show you how to be a manager who never loses his cool under fire

The next war zone : confronting the global threat of cyberterrorism by James F Dunnigan( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The next war is going to take place on a new battlefield: your own computer. You can't see it, but it's there, hidden in your home PC. A threat so potent, it could destroy massive amounts of data, and shut down power plants, fuel supplies, space satellites, the armed forces, millions of computers, and even parts of the Internet. A virtually undetectable but devastating new weapon is cyberwarfare, the next wave of terrorism, and it could be launched from your very own computer. Thousands of computer super viruses, monster worms, and zombies created by terrorists and rogue governments are the new tools of war with the potential for catastrophic results. The author sounds the alarm on what could be the nation's next surprise attack -- a cyber Pearl Harbor just waiting to happen. Every day, there are warnings of computer viruses and Internet weaknesses with the potential to disrupt society. Most are the work of amateur hackers. But consider also the super zombies, military-grade computer weapons being created by government cyberwar units. Virtually undetectable, they have the power to destroy everything, lethally spread via the Internet, and hide on home computers, waiting to be unleashed. Despite constant warnings about our cyber vulnerability, and billions of dollars spent defending our networks, the risk of catastrophic cyber attacks continues to grow. The author explains the rules of cyberwar -- what it is, what could happen, and how to protect yourself from becoming a pawn. From real-life attack scenarios to explanations of monster viruses; from cyberwarriors to what forces pose the most dangerous threats, he offers clear, concise information for fighting back against a phantom enemy that may be the deadliest we've ever known
