ABSTRACT

Cyberspace: Malevolent Actors, Criminal Opportunities, and Strategic Competition   [open pdf - 7MB]

"In a highly prescient analysis written just prior to the end of the Cold War, James Rosenau argued that we were moving from a world of dichotomies to a world of paradoxes, from a world where something was either A or B to a world where A and B coexist and interact, albeit often uneasily.1 Cyberspace is an excellent example of this world of paradoxes and complexity. The emergence and evolution of cyberspace have been an enormously positive force, contributing to globalization, the creation of a new global commons, the rapid spread of knowledge and ideas, the development of global markets for local products, and the empowerment of individuals and small groups."
