Editorial Reviews


"Jay Carafano has produced a wide-ranging yet deeply analytical survey of the revolutionary impact on national security that flows from our new Internet age. From cyber safety to information warfare to political revolution, our security environment has been transformed . . . . Carafano is neither a Pollyanna nor a Cassandra about these changes, but rather a clear-eyed scholar."--Michael Chertoff, former US Secretary of Homeland Security


(Michael Chertoff)

"Full of compelling anecdotes and with more of a journalistic than an academic tone, Wiki at War attempts to outline the future of national security in a socially networked global environment. This book is highly engaging."--M. O'Gara, Choice

(M. O'Gara Choice 2012-07-12)

"James Jay Carafano's Wiki at War: Conflict in a Socially Networked World is an intriguing book. Carafano's proposals demand sober reflection. The service Carafano renders with this book is important. Carafano makes a real contribution to the national discourse on cyber security and national security. National security professionals should read and reflect on the subject of this book."--COL Kevin Benson, USA Ret., Army

(COL Kevin Benson, USA Ret. ARMY 2012-07-12)

Wiki at War is both engaging and provocative.”—Timothy S. Wolters, The Journal of Military History
(Timothy S. Wolters The Journal of Military History 2012-10-29)

"The book is an easy read that provides ample evidence to support the notion that there is an ongoing competition in cyberspace using social networks to advance security objectives. Wiki at War expands the dialogue on significant contemporary international security issues. Dr. Carafano provides excellent analysis for military planners and senior civilian and military leaders to reflect on the implications of social networking in national and military strategy development as well as operating in the cyberspace domain."--Parameters

More About the Author

James Jay Carafano, a leading expert in national security and foreign policy challenges, is The Heritage Foundation's Vice President, Foreign and Defense Policy Studies, E. W. Richardson Fellow, and Director of the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for International Studies.

Carafano is an accomplished historian and teacher as well as a prolific writer and researcher whose most recent book is "Wiki at War: Conflict in a Socially Networked World" (Texas A&M University Press, 2012), a survey of the revolutionary impact of the Internet age on national security. He was selected from thousands to speak on cyber warfare at the 2014 South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Conference in Austin, Texas, the nation's premier tech and social media conference.

Before assuming responsibility for Heritage's entire defense and foreign policy team in December 2012, Carafano had served as deputy director of the Davis Institute as well as director of its Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign Policy Studies since 2009.

His recent research has focused on developing the national security required to secure the long-term interests of the United States -- protecting the public, providing for economic growth and preserving civil liberties. (Many of his writings for Heritage appear below.)

He is editor of a book series, The Changing Face of War, which examines how emerging political, social, economic and cultural trends will affect the nature of armed conflict. From 2012 to 2014, he served on the Homeland Security Advisory Council convened by the secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Carafano, a 25-year Army veteran with a master's and doctorate from Georgetown University, joined Heritage in 2003 as a senior research fellow in homeland security and missile defense. He worked with Kim R. Holmes, his predecessor as vice president and director of Davis Institute, to produce Heritage's groundbreaking documentary film "33 Minutes: Protecting America in the New Missile Age."

Carafano now directs Heritage's team of foreign and defense policy experts in four centers on the front lines of international affairs: the Allison Center, the Asian Studies Center, the Center for Trade and Economics and the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom. The Davis Institute also includes the Washington Roundtable for the Asia-Pacific Press (WRAPP).

Carafano also is president of a nonprofit organization, Esprit de Corps, which educates the public about veteran affairs. In this capacity he co-produced and co-wrote the documentary "Veteran Nation," an official selection of the 2013 G.I. Film Festival.

Format: Paperback
I purchased my copy about a month ago and just finished it. Carafano is spot on in his analysis. Many of his warnings are now the headlines of news reports regarding Chinese espionage and other cyber-warfare tactics being used by regimes to steal our secrets and undermine our national security. Always listen to this visionary man.
