Cyberjutsu: Cybersecurity for the Modern Ninja by Ben McCarty

Cyberjutsu is an approachable and enlightening guide to modern cyber security and espionage, based on secret techniques shared in ancient Japanese ninja scrolls. Like Sun Tzu’s Art of War for Modern Business, this book uses ancient ninja scrolls as the foundation for teaching readers about cyberwarfare, espionage and security.

Cyberjutsu brings the tactics, techniques and procedures ninjas used in feudal Japan into today’s cyber-security battlefield, creating an essential handbook for cyber defenders. The book uses authentic Japanese scrolls to analyze how real ninjas thought about and practiced information assurance, security, infiltration and espionage that often required covert, unauthorized access to heavily fortified organizations — many of the same concepts cyber-security professionals deal with every day.

Turning Points in the History of International Relations, 1908-2008 by Yoav J. Tenembaum

Turning points lend significance to historical events and enhance our understanding of historical processes. This book, written for academics and non-academics, defines what a turning point in the history of international relations is and then assesses, in a thought-provoking manner, some of the principal turning points from 1908 to 2008.

The turning points emerge in different forms, whether as international crises, diplomatic initiatives, speeches, telegrams or conferences. They can follow the appointment of a new leader or the staging of a revolution. The aim is to concentrate on the reasons for their being considered such crucial turning points.

The Cytherean Cycle by Josef Chytry

Set in the rich traditions of classical Greek literature, The Cytherean Cycle brings together three pathbreaking plays exploiting perennial themes of power, love, tragedy and comedy. “Rhea Silvia” — “a Womanist Tragedy” — depicts the fate of her progeny — the twins Romulus and Rema. “ParisAlexandros” narrates the lasting impact of Paris, mythical judge of Beauty, lover of Helen of Troy and slayer of the great warrior Achilles. “Nausikaa,” developing a suggestion that the Odyssey may have been composed by Nausikaa as a female acolyte of Homer, offers a rich and surprising comedy based on that premise.

The Cytherean Cycle cultivates an ongoing faculty of thought called Cytherics: the sighting of aestheticerotic, or aphrodisian, environments. Purchase at http://bit.ly/3bioWxf.
