About the Author

--This text refers to the audioCD edition.


“With The Shadow War, Jim Sciutto, my CNN colleague and distinguished journalist, has written a milestone tutorial on the nature of conflict in today’s world. Jim’s riveting writing style clearly explains the diverse array of the new forms of asymmetric power we confront—whether in the cyber, space, undersea, propaganda, or irregular forces realms. . . . Unlike other books on these subjects, The Shadow War doesn’t stop with just the ‘doom and gloom’ descriptions, but also offers thoughtful prescriptions on how to respond. A very enlightening, compelling, tightly organized, readable book.” -- James Clapper is the former Director of National Intelligence

“For many years Russia and China have fought a war in the shadows to undermine the United States from the outer reaches of space to the deep seas of the Arctic. Sciutto’s excellent portrayal of those conflicts will keep you up at night.” --
Peter Bergen is the author of Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for bin Laden from 9/11 to Abbottabad

“Jim has done a superb job capturing the current and future space and cyber threats to our national security. More importantly, he describes what the resulting vulnerabilities mean to the average citizen. This book should serve as a wake-up call for all of us.” --
General William Shelton (ret.) is the former Commander of US Air Force Space Command

The Shadow War is a clanging alarm, urging us to recognize and prioritize the threats we’ve ignored for too long. In crisp and elegant prose, Sciutto masterfully lays out how we got here and what we can do to deal with the asymmetrical challenges posed by Russia and China. The Shadow War is as alarming as it is necessary.” -- Julia Ioffe, foreign policy correspondent for GQ

“We are all vaguely aware that America and the West have been challenged recently in new and unusual ways—from tampering with elections to misinformation to cyberattacks. Jim Sciutto puts it all together and helps us understand the new ‘Shadow War.’ This is a timely book, defining for us the nature of international conflict in the foreseeable future. Sciutto is a highly intelligent, determined, and hardworking reporter, and it shows. The book is deeply reported, crisply written, and thoroughly engaging.” --
Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post-American World --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
