A for Anonymous: How a Mysterious Hacker Collective Transformed the World (Hardcover)
Backordered at our distributor but we can check availability from the publisher.
The illustrated, inside story of the legendary hacktivist group's origins and most daring exploits.
A for Anonymous shows how a leaderless band of volunteers successfully used hacktivism to fight for the underdog, embarrass their rich and powerful targets--from Sony and Paypal to the Church of Scientology and Ferguson Police Department--all in the name of freedom of speech and information. Their exploits blurred the distinction between "online" and "reality," and help shape our contemporary world.
