    Over the course of his 60 years, Christopher Hitchens has been a citizen of both the United States and the United Kingdom. He has been both a socialist opposed to the war in Vietnam and a supporter of the U.S. war against Islamic extremism in Iraq. He has been both a foreign correspondent in some of the world's most dangerous places and a legendary bon vivant with an unquenchable thirst for alcohol and literature.

    Even if you are not a fan of Hitch, this is a fantastic read. It is certainly among my favorite memoirs and I shall probably read it again.

    In this disquieting cyber thriller, Joseph Menn takes readers into the murky hacker underground, traveling the globe from San Francisco to Costa Rica and London to Russia. His guides are California surfer and computer whiz Barrett Lyon and a fearless British high-tech agent. Through these heroes, Menn shows the evolution of cyber-crime from small-time thieving to sophisticated, organized gangs, who began by attacking corporate websites but increasingly steal financial data from consumers.

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    This was an extremely well written book by an expert in the field. I would consider it a must if you are interested in the subject matter, especially the development of the US drone program.

    Like many other things, organized crime has been globalized. In McMafia, Misha Glenny discusses, among other groups, the Russian mafia, Colombian drug cartels, and Chinese labor smugglers, explaining how organized crime exploits the developing world's poverty, as well as new technologies. He makes clear that global crime and terrorism are rooted in the West's material affluence.
