An award-winning investigative reporter for the Wall Street Journal provides a thought-provoking look at the theft of America's technological secrets by foreign powers and its potentially devastating impact on the U.S. economy. War by Other Means is a clarion call to those in important industry and policy positions in the United States to consider the very real risks of economic espionage. Companies cannot ignore a horizon crowded with challenges such as how to maintain security over operations in an age when information products--from patents to software--can be lifted at the speed of light and reproduced at virtually no cost. John Fialka, who writes for the Wall Street Journal, here records the true spy stories of foreign intelligence operatives penetrating U.S. industries to gather valuable information ranging from trade secrets to military technology. Fialka tells his story in the strong language of battle and delivers a barrage of supporting facts: names, dates, numbers, and the procedures foreign countries take to gain restricted information. This lively story will raise fresh concern about the nature of competition among international businesses as well as national intelligence agencies.
