Summary

Cyberwar: How Russian Hackers and Trolls Helped Elect a President What We Don't, Can't, and Do Know  by Kathleen Hall Jamieson | Conversation Starters

Cyberwar is a path-breaking work on media research done in the past half-century.
Award-winning scholar Kathleen Hall Jamieson attempts to answer questions that are foremost in the minds of many Americans: How far-ranging is the trolling work? How was the social media exploited by the Russians? What compelled the mainstream media to use hacked messages in their news reports? How truthful was Clinton when she claimed debate moderators did not use authentic information from her leaked speeches? Was FBI director James Comey a victim of Russian influence? The New Yorker says the book provides a "meticulous analysis of online activity during the 2016 campaign" which shows the decisive effect of cyber-attacks made by Russia.
Cyberwar is authored by Jamieson who won the Henry Allen Moe Prize in the Humanities in 2016, awarded by the American Philosophical Society. Her other books include The Obama Victory and Packaging the Presidency.
