            Fake News in Context defines fake news and sets it within a historical and international context. Helping readers to become more skilled at detecting misinformation, the book also demonstrates how such knowledge can be leveraged to facilitate more effective engagement in civic ed...ucation. Distinguishing between fake news and other forms of misinformation, the book explains the complete communication cycle of fake news: how and why it is created, disseminated, and accessed. The book then explains the physical and psychological reasons why people believe fake news. Providing generic methods for identifying fake news, Farmer also explains the use of fact-checking tools and automated algorithms. The book then details how various literacies, including news, media, visual, information, digital and data, offer unique concepts and skills that can help interpret fake news. Arguing that individuals and groups can respond and counter fake news, which leads to civic engagement and digital citizenship, the book concludes by providing strategies for instruction and tips for collaborating with librarians. Including a range of international examples, Fake News in Context will be of interest to teaching faculty, and students of library and information science, communication studies, media studies, politics and journalism. Librarians and information professionals will also find a valuable resource in this book.

            In Redefining Eternity: Interfacing Immortality in the Digital Corporate World, Bethany Crawford critically assesses the implications of digital immortality for central tenets of the human experience - such as consciousness, death, and time - as a preliminary mapping of the shift...ing existential paradigms of the digital age. This groundbreaking new book explores the social consequences and provocations of a digitally replicable subject in the current sociopolitical context. It thereby confronts a timeless philosophical question, imbued with ever greater urgency in our digital age: What does it mean to be human? Redefining Eternity establishes the motivations of digital and information technologies in creating immortalization through social and modal engagement with these new media. By analyzing various digital services currently promoting immortality, both intentionally and unintentionally, and engaging with texts by transhumanists and technologists such as Ray Kurzweil, Martine Rothblatt, and Max More, this endeavor allows for critical interpretation of the key terminologies, processes, and intentions for an immortal digital being. Crawford's findings offer a dynamic foundation for conceptual analysis of the ramifications of living forever as a digital post-death self.

            CryptoWars is the first, and definitive, book of its kind. CryptoWars offers a history of the half century contest between the US government and its citizens to control digital cryptography, a technology allowing citizens to place their communications beyond the State's reach, th...us undermining law enforcement and intelligence capabilities. Thus, CryptoWars is in part a history of how society balances security and privacy, whilst it also explores the power dynamic between citizenry and state, in the digital age. Tipping the scales to extremes in either direction could lead to an Orwellian nightmare, or a State unable to deliver security to its citizens. This issue typically leads news cycles, and with President Donald Trump recently tweeting about the crypto wars it is expected there will be significant political activity on, and public interest in, the topic during coming years. Whilst principally a history book on a technology topic, CryptoWars draws in Socio-economic elements (e.g. how hippies became hackers, and how tech titans sought to rule the world), Legal issues at play (e.g. the laws over which the right to digital privacy were fought), Geopolitical themes (e.g. how the CIA used a covert operation to sell their enemies encryption the NSA built), Myriad other complex disciplines, making a seemingly prosaic topic an exciting read. Digital privacy will be one of the most important factors in how we design twenty-first century societies, and its management is paramount to our stewardship of freedom and liberty for future generations. We need to elevate the quality of public debate on cryptography, on how we balance security and privacy, or else society could sleep walk into a state where the future power balance between state and citizen is decided without due consideration. CryptoWars is written to provide the foundation for the requisite higher quality of debate.
