In April 2016, computer technicians at the Democratic National Committee discovered that someone had accessed the organization’s computer servers and conducted a theft that is best described as Watergate 2.0. In the weeks that followed, the nation’s top computer security experts discovered that the cyber thieves had helped themselves to everything: sensitive documents, emails, donor information, even voice mails. Soon after, the remainder of the Democratic Party machine, the congressional campaign, the Clinton campaign, and their friends and allies in the media were also hacked. Credit cards numbers, phone numbers, and contacts were stolen. In short order, the FBI found that more than twenty-five state election offices had their voter registration systems probed or attacked by the same hackers. Western intelligence agencies tracked the hack to Russian spy agencies and dubbed them the CYBER BEARS. The media was soon flooded with the stolen information channeled through Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. It was a massive attack on America but the Russian hacks appeared to have a singular goal—elect Donald J. Trump as president of the United States. New York Times bestselling author and career intelligence officer Malcolm Nance’s fast paced real-life spy thriller takes you from Vladimir Putin’s rise through the KGB from junior officer to spymaster-in-chief and spells out the story of how he performed the ultimate political manipulation—convincing Donald Trump to abandon seventy years of American foreign policy including the destruction of NATO, cheering the end of the European Union, allowing Russian domination of Eastern Europe, and destroying the existing global order with America at its lead. The Plot to Hack America is the thrilling true story of how Putin’s spy agency, run by the Russian billionaire class, used the promise of power and influence to cultivate Trump as well as his closest aides, the Kremlin Crew, to become unwitting assets of the Russian government. The goal? To put an end to 240 years of free and fair American democratic elections.

Die Geschichte des größten Daten-Leaks aller Zeiten beginnt spät am Abend mit einer anonymen Nachricht: „Hallo. Hier spricht John Doe. Interessiert an Daten?“ Bastian Obermayer, Investigativreporter der Süddeutschen Zeitung, antwortet sofort – und erhält Informationen, die ihn und seinen Kollegen Frederik Obermaier elektrisieren. Es sind die Daten hunderttausender Briefkastenfirmen. Sie bieten einen Einblick in eine bislang vollständig abgeschottete Parallelwelt, in der Milliarden verwaltet, verschoben und versteckt werden: die Gelder von großen Konzernen, von europäischen Premierministern und Diktatoren aus aller Welt, von Scheichs, Emiren und Königen, von Mafiosi, Schmugglern, Drogenbossen, von Geheimagenten, FIFA-Funktionären, Adligen, Superreichen und Prominenten. Um möglichst viele internationale Geschichten erzählen zu können, beschließen die beiden Journalisten, ein weltweites Netzwerk von Investigativreportern – das ICIJ – einzuschalten. Während sie selbst weiter nach Namen und Geschichten suchen, koordinieren sie gemeinsam mit dem ICIJ die Arbeit hunderter Journalisten. Fast ein Jahr arbeiten Reporter der wichtigsten Medien der Welt – etwa des Guardian, der BBC oder von Le Monde – unter höchster Geheimhaltung zusammen, um im Frühjahr 2016 die „Panama Papers“ zu veröffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist die faszinierende Geschichte einer internationalen journalistischen Recherche, die aufdeckt, was bis jetzt verborgen war: Wie eine kleine Elite, die sich niemandem mehr verantwortlich glaubt, ungeheure Vermögen versteckt. Es ist, als würde man in einem dunklen Raum das Licht anknipsen: Plötzlich ist alles sichtbar.

DER NEUE US-PRÄSIDENT – WER IST DONALD TRUMP? In Die Akte Trump zeigt Pulitzerpreisträger David Cay Johnston den Aufstieg des 45. Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten – angefangen bei Kindheit und Erziehung bis zum erbitterten Wahlkampf gegen Hillary Clinton. Mithilfe zahlreicher Interviews, Gerichtsakten und Finanzdokumente wird das Gefl echt aus Lügen und Halbwahrheiten rund um Donald Trump entwirrt und offengelegt. Wer ist der mächtigste Mann der Welt? Sachlich und fundiert entwirft David Cay Johnston ein vollständiges, brandaktuelles und mitunter erschreckendes Bild des neuen US-Präsidenten. »Was Johnston über den neuen Präsidenten erzählt, ist beeindruckend. Näher kann man Trump zurzeit wohl nicht kommen.« Süddeutsche Zeitung »David Cay Johnston gehört zu den Wenigen, die das komplexe trumpsche Firmengeflecht durchdrungen und hinter die vergoldeten Kulissen geblickt haben.« Der Spiegel Die Akte Trump »enthüllt die dubiosen Geschäfte des Donald Trump – und seine Skrupellosigkeit selbst gegenüber der eigenen Familie«.

Zwielichtige Machenschaften wie Drogenhandel und Geldwäsche, Mordkomplotte, illegale Interventionen und Folter: Seit ihrer Gründung vor sechzig Jahren steht die CIA für viele dubiose Vorgänge beginnend mit dem Kalten Krieg bis zum heutigen »War on Terror«. Es gibt kaum eine Veränderung im Weltgeschehen der letzten Jahrzehnte, bei der die CIA nicht ihre Hände im Spiel hatte, ob in Südamerika, Vietnam oder Afghanistan... In zahlreichen Filmen und Thrillern wird sie als kühler, brillanter und allmächtiger Strippenzieher der Weltpolitik dargestellt. Doch das Gegenteil ist der Fall. Der zweifache Pulitzer-Preisträger Tim Weiner zeigt beängstigend und zugleich erstaunlich unterhaltsam, mit welcher Inkompetenz und Naivität der mächtigste Geheimdienst der Welt operiert. Unter anderem war man in Langley vom Fall der Sowjetunion völlig überrascht, hatte die Invasion in Kuwait übersehen und die Warnsignale vor dem 11. September ignoriert.

* THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Technological advances have benefited our world in immeasurable ways, but there is an ominous flipside. Criminals are often the earliest, and most innovative, adopters of technology and modern times have led to modern crimes. Today's criminals are stealing identities, draining online bank-accounts and wiping out computer servers. It's disturbingly easy to activate baby cam monitors to spy on families, pacemakers can be hacked to deliver a lethal jolt, and thieves are analyzing your social media in order to determine the best time for a home invasion. Meanwhile, 3D printers produce AK-47s, terrorists can download the recipe for the Ebola virus, and drug cartels are building drones. This is just the beginning of the tsunami of technological threats coming our way. In Future Crimes, Marc Goodman rips open his database of hundreds of real cases to give us front-row access to these impending perils. Reading like a sci-fi thriller, but based in startling fact, Goodman raises tough questions about the expanding role of technology in our lives. Future Crimes is a call to action for better security measures worldwide, but most importantly, will empower readers to protect themselves against these looming technological threats - before it's too late.

In the tradition of Michio Kaku’s The Future of the Mind, acclaimed technologist and inventor Amir Husain answers the universal question of how we can live amidst the coming age of sentient machines and artificial intelligence—and not only survive, but thrive. The future is now. Artificial “machine” intelligence is playing an ever-greater role in our society. We are already using cruise control in our cars, automatic checkout at the drugstore, and are unable to live without our smartphones. The discussion around AI is largely polarized; people think either machines will solve all problems for everyone, or they will lead us down a dark, dystopian path into total human irrelevance. Regardless of what you believe, the idea that we might bring forth intelligent creation can be intrinsically frightening. But what if our greatest role as humans so far is that of creators? Amir Husain, a brilliant inventor and computer scientist argues that we are on the cusp of writing our next, and greatest, creation myth. It is the dawn of a new form of intellectual diversity, one that we need to embrace in order to advance the state of the art in many critical fields, including security, resource management, finance, and energy. In The Sentient Machine, he addresses broad existential questions surrounding the coming of AI: Why are we valuable? What can we create in this world? How are we intelligent? What constitutes progress for us? And how might we fail to progress? Husain boils down complex computer science and AI concepts into clear, plainspoken language and draws from a wide variety of cultural and historical references to illustrate his points. Ultimately, he challenges many of our societal norms and upends assumptions we hold about “the good life.”

A generation ago, "cyberspace" was just a term from science fiction, used to describe the nascent network of computers linking a few university labs. Today, our entire modern way of life, from communication to commerce to conflict, fundamentally depends on the Internet. And the cybersecurity issues that result challenge literally everyone: politicians wrestling with everything from cybercrime to online freedom; generals protecting the nation from new forms of attack, while planning new cyberwars; business executives defending firms from once unimaginable threats, and looking to make money off of them; lawyers and ethicists building new frameworks for right and wrong. Most of all, cybersecurity issues affect us as individuals. We face new questions in everything from our rights and responsibilities as citizens of both the online and real world to simply how to protect ourselves and our families from a new type of danger. And yet, there is perhaps no issue that has grown so important, so quickly, and that touches so many, that remains so poorly understood. In Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know?, New York Times best-selling author P. W. Singer and noted cyber expert Allan Friedman team up to provide the kind of easy-to-read, yet deeply informative resource book that has been missing on this crucial issue of 21st century life. Written in a lively, accessible style, filled with engaging stories and illustrative anecdotes, the book is structured around the key question areas of cyberspace and its security: how it all works, why it all matters, and what can we do? Along the way, they take readers on a tour of the important (and entertaining) issues and characters of cybersecurity, from the "Anonymous" hacker group and the Stuxnet computer virus to the new cyber units of the Chinese and U.S. militaries. Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know? is the definitive account on the subject for us all, which comes not a moment too soon.

Besonders zieht ihn eine Gruppe junger Studenten in den Bann, mit denen er nicht nur Griechisch lernt, sondern auch ausgelassen feiert. Doch bald spürt er, dass unter der Oberfläche unerschütterlicher Freundschaft Spannungen lauern und dass ein furchtbares Geheimnis seine Freunde belastet – ein Geheimnis, das auch ihn mehr und mehr in seinen dunklen, mörderischen Sog zieht.
