This study examines the US fiction and related films which makes a series of interventions in the cultural debate over the threat of nuclear terrorism. It traces the beginnings of this anxiety from the 1970s, which increased during the 1990s after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The traumatic events of 9/11 became a major reference point for this fiction, which expressed the fear that of a second and worse 9/11. The study examines narratives of conspiracies which are detected and forestalled, and of others which lead to the worst of all outcomes - nuclear detonations, sometimes delivered by suitcase nukes. In some of these narratives the very fate of the nation hangs in the balance in the face of nuclear apocalypse. The discussion considers cases of attacks by electromagnetic pulse (EMP), cyberterrorism and even bioterrorism. Some of the authors examined are present or former politicians, members of the CIA, and former president, Bill Clinton.

Jesus commanded that his followers faithfully watch for his return. This command clearly implies there is something to watch for! But what exactly is that? How are we to recognize the specific signs of his coming? What differentiates false messiahs, wars and rumors of war, famines, pestilence, persecution and earthquakesthe signs Jesus gavefrom those same afflictions that have plagued man since the beginning? What is it that makes the period of history immediately prior to Jesus return identifiably different? Keeping Watch unveils the answer, identifying the specific signs of Jesus return and why these signs are unique to a particular event at a particular moment in history an event already beginning to unfold! Keeping Watch clarifies the biblical precepts by which God judges people and nations. The application of these precepts to the book of Revelation reveals that the seals, the first set of seven so-called judgments, are not actually judgments at all, but rather a series of events fulfilling the signs of Jesus return. When considering the signs and their fulfillments together, the story of a world-shaking conflict unfoldsa conflict that brings nations to their knees while fulfilling every sign Jesus gave his disciples! Jesus declared, When you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. We are that generation!

Krishnan describes military applications of neuroscience research and emerging neurotechnology with relevance to the conduct of armed conflict and law enforcement. This work builds upon literature by scholars such as Moreno and Giordano and fills an existing gap, not only in terms of reviewing available and future neurotechnologies and relevant applications, but by discussing how the military pursuit of these technologies fits into the overall strategic context. The first to sketch future neurowarfare by looking at its potentials as well as its inherent limitations, this book’s main theme is how military neuroscience will enhance and possibly transform both classical psychological operations and cyber warfare. Its core argument is that nonlethal strategies and tactics could become central to warfare in the first half of the twenty-first century. This creates both humanitarian opportunities in making war less bloody and burdensome as well as some unprecedented threats and dangers in terms of preserving freedom of thought and will in a coming age where minds can be manipulated with great precision.
