Russell Miller (Privacy and Power: A Transatlantic Dialogue in the Shadow of the NSA-Affair ) and Sharon Weinberger (The Imagineers of War: The Untold Story of DARPA, the Pentagon Agency That Changed the World) dive into the deep recesses of government to examine the work of the intelligence community and who it serves, from the beginning of DARPA, through Snowden’s disclosures, and the “deep state” of today.

Why should you attend?

The NSA-Affair proved that Americans and Europeans have wildly divergent understandings of privacy and intelligence gathering. This book (Privacy and Power) documents and explains this fundamental difference, featuring commentary from leading commentators, scholars and practitioners from both sides of the Atlantic.

“[A] defining behind-the-scenes look at the confluence of defense politics and technological prowess. Exploring silly schemes as well as sensible ideas, distinguished military science and technology expert Weinberger profiles the crusaders who thought outside the box in service to their country and their own limitless creativity.”—Carol Haggas, Booklist
