      As unmarked, white people are able to live their identities as unraced, as simply human, as persons. These conditions reflect a prevailing belief that the vulnerable are unworthy of investment, protection, or even the most fundamental provisions of the social contract. America the Vulnerable is a great read for ITGS students or teachers interested in wider issues related to this area, and the reader will find many examples that directly relate to the ITGS syllabus. The Chinese, for example, have an estimated 30, cyberspies working for the government.

      Dispatches from the corporate world are just as dire. Instead, they represent the countless Americans who die daily, and unnecessarily, at the hands of those who are paid to protect and serve them. Brenner emphasises that this new type of warfare is radically different from anything America has previously encountered, and is a theatre in which they do not possess their traditional power advantage. Yet, that is what many white people assumed that I meant.

      The gift contained in Backlash offers an embodied way of rethinking, re-feeling and re-positioning what it means to be white. He digs underneath these events to uncover patterns and policies of authority that allow some citizens become disempowered, disenfranchised, poor, uneducated, exploited, vulnerable, and disposable. Prior to being choked to death by Daniel Pantaleo, Eric Garner lived in a community terrorized by policing practices that transform neighborhoods into occupied territories and citizens into enemy combatants.

America the vulnerable book

The majority of the white responses were vile, despicable and unconscionable. Prior to being choked to death by Daniel Pantaleo, Eric Garner lived in a community terrorized by policing practices that transform neighborhoods into occupied territories and citizens into enemy combatants.

Patriarchy is powerful. This allows hackers easy access important intellectual property. Brenner emphasises that this new type of warfare is radically different from anything America has previously encountered, and is a theatre in which they do not possess their traditional power advantage.

Twenty terabytes of information — enough to fill a line of moving vans miles long if the data were on paper — stolen by cyber spies from Pentagon networks? Unlike other forms of difference, class creates the material conditions and relations through which racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression are produced, sustained, and lived.

What became clear to me are the deep ways in which that discourse, those assumptions and imagery are still quite palpable within the white American psyche.

This does not mean that all forms of injustice are due to class antagonism, nor does it mean that all forms of domination can be automatically fixed through universal class struggle. They are even more complex and challenging to ascertain and interpret in cyberspace, where actions are nearly instantaneous and "intentions can change on a dime.

He is most convincing in arguing the risks of a "silver bullet approach," the assumption that a single innovation will solve a particular security problem.

The structure and culture of the Internet favor spies over governments and corporations, and hackers over privacy, and we've done little to alter that balance. Oil companies' vital exploration data siphoned from corporate networks.

Our government and corporations are a "glass house," all but transparent to our adversaries. Despite the centrality of race within American life, Nobodyness cannot be understood without an equally thorough analysis of class.

White people possess white privilege or white immunity from racial disease. The role of government, however, is to offer forms of protection that enhance our lives and shield our bodies from foreseeable and preventable dangers.

An extremely important book. Should be required reading for lawmakers and public officials, to remind them of their legal and moral responsibilities and to inspire them to stop these disturbing practices and direct these crucial resources to their rightful recipients.

For the most part, it was a missed opportunity for so many white people. It goes great with Ted Koppel's book Lights Out. Flynn stresses as well the susceptibility of the food supply to sabotage and the lack of oversight in a vulnerable chemical industry, emphasizing in particular the continuing failure to establish systematic inspection of cargo containers.

To help us understand the plight of vulnerable communities, he examines the effects of unfettered capitalism, mass incarceration, and political power while urging us to consider a new world in which everyone has a chance to become somebody.
