Open Source Intelligence In A Networked World

RRP $282.99

The amount of publicly and often freely available information is staggering. Yet, the intelligence community still continues to collect and use information in the same manner as during WWII, when the OSS set out to learn as much as possible about Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan by scrutinizing encyclopedias, guide books, and short-wave radio. Today, the supply of information is greater than any possible demand, and anyone can provide information. In effect, intelligence analysts are drowning in information.

The book explains how to navigate this rising flood and make best use of these new, rich sources of information. Written by a pioneer in the field, it explores the potential uses of digitized data and the impact of the new means of creating and transmitting data, recommending to the intelligence community new ways of collecting and processing information.

This comprehensive overview of the world of open source intelligence will appeal not only to practitioners and students of intelligence, but also to anyone interested in communication and the challenges posed by the information age.


Sources In British Political History, 1900-51: V. 2

RRP $14.99

From 1970 to 1977 a major project to uncover source material for students of contemporary British history and politics was undertaken at the British Library of Political and Economic Science. Fiananced by the Social Science Research Council, and under the direction of Dr Chris Cook, this project has attempted a unique and systematic operation to locate, and then to make readily available, those archives that provide the indispensable source material for the contemporary historian. This volume (the fifth in the series) provides a guide to the papers of propagandists who were influential in British public life. Included in this volume are the papers of such persons as newspaper editors, leading economists, social reformers, socialist thinkers, trade unionists, industrialists and a variety of theologians and philanthropists. In all, this volume not only completes the findings of the project but opens up the archive sources of a hitherto neglected area of research into contemporary social and political history.


Natural Resources Law

RRP $612.99

The broad national coverage and array of topics in Natural Resources Law is of interest to readers across the country. Most cases are introduced with a photo or map of the place, along with a context-setting paragraph. The text conveys the drama behind resource disputes and policy and the love-of-place. Each group of cases--both foundational cases as well as new decisions--begins with a factually rich discussion problem tailored to the cases that follow. Many problems mirror traditional essay exam questions; others raise contemporary policy issues. This highly teachable book groups readings into discrete, assignment-sized chunks of 25-40 pages, allowing coverage of 2-4 cases or one problem during each class section. The main emphasis is on primary sources, and each chapter opens with relevant statutory and regulatory sections.

The Third Edition sees an expanded emphasis on energy, exploring the Deepwater Horizon disaster, fracking, renewable energy development on federal lands, and the Keystone XL Pipeline. Climate change is addressed in every chapter. More great problems appear alongside photographs and slides. New cases and notes examine Connecticut v. American Electric Powe r (climate change and nuisance law); Summers v. Earth Island Institute and Monstanto v. Geerston Seed Farms (standing); Carcieri v. Salazar (Indian Reorganization Act); Stop the Beach Renourishment v. Florida DEP and PPL Montana, LLC v. Montana (public trust); Arizona Cattle Growers' Ass'n v. Salazar and Center for Biological Diversity v. Kempthorne (Endangered Species Act); Edwards Aquifer Authority v. Day (water law); National Mining Ass'n v.

    In recent years, the way open source software is developed has taken hold as a valid alternative to commercial proprietary methods, as have the products themselves, e.g., the Linux operating system, Apache web-server software, and Mozilla Firefox browser. But what is open source software? How is the open source community organized? What makes this new model successful? What effects has it had and might it have on the future of the IT industry, companies and government policies? These and many other questions are answered in this book.The first chapter gives a brief history of the open source community and the second chapter takes a close look at the relationship between intellectual property rights and software, both open source and proprietary. The next three chapters consider the who, the open source community, the how, software development both within and outside the community, and the what, open source projects and product quality. Chapters 6 and 7 focus on the different users of open source software: companies and governments respectively. These are followed by two chapters that interpret the phenomenon, first from an organizational point of view in Chapter 8 and then using the theory of complex adaptive systems in Chapter 9. The last chapter explores the current and potential applications of the concept underlying open source software in other fields.
