Usually I hate glossaries. They're usually simple, insulting, and useless. This book needs one though, given the wide range of time and technical materials. I got it from the library, but due to it being heavily requested and my schedule didn't make it through. I should have paid closer attention to the table of contents before I started and read it non-linearly. I think this book probably should have been a series, not on large tome. At least they should have pulled out the editorials and legal battles into a separate book which I would imagine would be useful to a researcher.

Rated 5/5
Nearly 20 years of a very specific part of computing history. If you are also interested in social and legal issues in terms of computer hacking and want to learn the details of famous cases such as the Mitnick case or DeCSS (DVD decryption) case this is a very good reference and a page turner. It also has quite technical bits which is definitely a plus.Natural intelligence recommendation: If you liked this book then you'll also like Phrack ;-)
