Computer Terrorism By Douglas E. Campbell, Ph.D.
Paperback: $19.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Nearly 20 years ago, in December 1992, I submitted this research in partial fulfillment of a requirement for my Doctor of Philosophy degree in Security Administration at Southwest University located... More > in Kenner (New Orleans), LA. The title of my research was initially called “Terrorist and Hostile Intelligence Actions Against Computer Resources.” Much of what I said 20 years ago still rings true today: the terrorists are getting smarter and the proliferation of viruses and their use by foreign countries and in wartime situations comes to mind. This book is basically divided into four sections: The Destruction of Computer Resources By Terrorist Groups: An Historical Perspective; Hackers and Hostile Intelligence Agents as Computer Terrorists; Computer Resources Being Used By Terrorists; and Methodology to Reduce the Vulnerability to Your Computer Center.< Less

USS DORADO (SS-248): On Eternal Patrol By Douglas E. Campbell, Ph.D.
Paperback: $37.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
“We knew we were going to have a rough time with this submarine from the beginning.” Those words were written by Don Wheeler, a former DORADO crewmember who participated in the sea... More > trials, in a letter to the author. DORADO was a U.S. Gato-class submarine, launched on May 23, 1943, set sail for Pearl Harbor via the Panama Canal on October 6, and was lost with all hands somewhere in the Caribbean Sea six days later. This book is quite possibly about one of the worst “friendly fire” incidents in U.S. military history. It is the story of a U.S. submarine attacked by a patrol-bomber aircraft attached to VP-210 out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Within these pages you will read the formal Court of Inquiry that concluded, incorrectly, that the aircrew probably bombed a U-boat that was known to be in the area. Included in this book is the U-214 logbook which shows that they witnessed the bombing of DORADO. In this book is also the story of the author's search for the submarine over a 20+ year period.< Less
