Some Interesting Books

Computer security is not merely a technical field. Knowing about people, and about societies, guides the application of the technical material. During this class we’ll often refer to an eclectic collection of books that teach lessons we can apply to computer security. These are some referred to in past classes, plus a few other favorites.

This list was compiled by Tom Walcott, a former TA for ECS 153, with a few additions by Matt Bishop. Any other suggestions welcome!
