Beautiful Security explores this challenging subject with insightful essays and analysis on topics that include: The underground economy for personal information: how it works, the relationships among criminals, and some of the new ways they pounce on their prey How social networking, cloud computing, and other popular trends help or hurt our online security How metrics, requirements gathering, design, and law can take security to a higher level The real, little-publicized history of PGP This book includes contributions from: Peiter "Mudge" Zatko Jim Stickley Elizabeth Nichols Chenxi Wang Ed Bellis Ben Edelman Phil Zimmermann and Jon Callas Kathy Wang Mark Curphey John McManus James Routh Randy V.

يعتبر كتاب (أيقونات التطور) من أهم الكتب التي تنتقد ما يُدرس لطلبة العلوم في الجامعات عن التطور، من أشياء هي أقرب للخرافة. وتدور الرسالة الأساسية للكتاب حول إبراز مقدرة خبراء العلم الطبيعي على توظيف العلم توظيفًا أيديولوجيًا قمعيًا إقصائيًا، متى أرادوا ذلك أو شعروا بالحاجة إليه. وكذلك قابلية العلم الطبيعي نفسه لأن يتحول من خلال نظرياته ومؤيديه إلى أساطير ذات أيقونات وسرديات ورموز وإشارات.

ما الذي يريد أن يعرفه قادة المدارس؟ في هذا الكتاب يعتمد توماس ر. هور على خبرته التي تزيد عن 25 عاماً في قيادة المدرسة ويقدم نصيحته التي لا تقدر بثمن حول إدارة المدرسة، فيتناول التحديات الماثلة أمام قادة المدارس من تقييم عمل المعلمين إلى التعامل مع أهالي الطلبة، ومن إدارة الاجتماعات إلى صنع الفرق، فيقدم لنا إستراتيجياته التي أثبت نجاحها. يقول هور: إن القيادة مبنية على العلاقات، وأفضل الإداريين يدعمون العمل في الفريق الواحد القائم على الزمالة ويثمنون التنوع ويشجعون كل من يحيط بهم؛ لكي ينمو ويتطور. يستعين بأمثلة من مدرسته التي يقودها فيلخص لنا الوسائل التي تجعل القائد أكثر تأثيراً ويخلق ثقافة التعلم. كما يبحث في كتابه هذا في تاريخ القيادة ومستقبلها، حيث يركز على الطريقة التي يتبعها المربون في سبيل تقدم المدارس. إن كتاب فن القيادة المدرسية، الذي يضم بين دفتيه ما يزيد عن 100 جملة مقتبسة مما قاله التربويون في مختلف أنحاء العالم يشكل وصفاً حياً مفعماً بالأفكار حول ما تقتضيه قيادة المدرسة. «من خلال روحه المرحة والممتعة واستقامته وصدق كلامه الذي يخلو من الرطانة الغريبة يكتسب هور المصداقية والاحترام. إن وصفه للحياة داخل المدرسة يجد صدى له في خبرات معظم المعلمين والإداريين وأهالي الطلبة.» رولاند بارت. العبيكان للنشر

"State of Denial feels all the more outraged for its measured, nonpartisan tones and relentless reporting. It is nothing less than a watershed.... The full story of the Iraq War will be told by historians....This book...will be at the top of their shelves as they proceed to the altar of judgment." -- Ted Widmer, The Washington Post Book World "Serious, densely, even exhaustively reported, and a real contribution to history in that it gives history what it most requires, first-person testimony....This is a primer on how the executive branch of the United States works, or rather doesn't work, in the early years of the 21st century." -- Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal "Never-before-reported nuggets in every chapter....It offers the most revealing in-the-room glimpse of the Bush administration that we have so far." -- Walter Shapiro, Salon.com "State of Denial is brimming with vivid details about White House meetings, critical phone calls, intelligence reports, and military affairs....Impressively detailed and eye-opening revelations about the Bush administration's handling of the Iraq war and its aftermath." -- Chuck Leddy, The Boston Globe "Woodward's book is packed with details about the gulf between the information the administration had and the picture it presented." -- USA Today "Woodward's trilogy on the Bush administration at war is essential, and compelling, reading." -- Foreign Affairs
