The long-awaited follow up to best-selling retro gaming book Speccy Nation! Join veteran games writer Dan Whitehead on a ten year journey through the dizzying highs and bewildering lows of 1980s pop culture, the cult TV shows, the forgotten cartoons and the blockbuster movies as captured in the bizarre, brilliant and often just terrible tie-in ZX Spectrum games that defined the first ever digital decade. The 1980s! Nostalgia has made this decade hip again, but for those who were there first time around it was a time of social upheaval, uplifting pop music, bombastic TV, lurid fashion and garish cartoons. Transformers! Knight Rider! Fighting Fantasy! Top Gun! Geoff Capes! Rambo! Chewits! Grange Hill! Spitting Image! Samantha Fox! Gobots! Danger Mouse! Airwolf! Super Gran! And more! It was a decade of mass entertainment, of lazy summer holidays, school discos and biking across town on a Saturday morning to spend pocket money on sweets and comics...and maybe a Spectrum game. Yes, the 1980s was also a decade experienced for the first time through computers, as everything was turned into a game for Britain's children to play along at home.

Video Game Policy

This book analyzes the effect of policy on the digital game complex: government, industry, corporations, distributors, players, and the like. Contributors argue that digital games are not created nor consumed outside of the complex power relationships that dictate the full production and distribution cycles, and that we need to consider those relationships in order to effectively "read" and analyze digital games. Through examining a selection of policies, e.g. the Australian government’s refusal (until recently) to allow an R18 rating for digital games, Blizzard’s policy in regards to intellectual property, Electronic Arts’ corporate policy for downloadable content (DLC), they show how policy, that is to say the rules governing the production, distribution and consumption of digital games, has a tangible effect upon our understanding of the digital game medium.

Cyberthreats And The Decline Of The Nation State

This book explores the extraordinary difficulties a nation-state’s law enforcement and military face in attempting to prevent cyber-attacks. In the wake of recent assaults including the denial of service attack on Estonia in 2007 and the widespread use of the Zeus Trojan Horse software, Susan W. Brenner explores how traditional categories and procedures inherent in law enforcement and military agencies can obstruct efforts to respond to cyberthreats. Brenner argues that the use of a territorially-based system of sovereignty to combat cyberthreats is ineffective, as cyberspace erodes the import of territory. This problem is compounded by the nature of cybercrime as a continually evolving phenomenon driven by rapid and complex technological change. Following an evaluation of the efficacy of the nation-state, the book goes on to explore how individuals and corporations could be integrated into a more decentralized, distributed system of cyberthreat control. Looking at initiatives in Estonia and Sweden which have attempted to incorporate civilians into their cyber-response efforts, Brenner suggests that civilian involvement may mediate the rigid hierarchies that exist among formal agencies and increase the flexibility of any response. This book will be of great interest to students and researchers of information technological law and security studies.

No matter where you live, there are always reasons to be gosh-darn proud of it. For instance, did you know that: Clitheroe has the largest pigeons in the UK? Mick Jagger and Keith Richards first agreed to form a band on the platform of Sidcup railway station? And that Derry entered Guinness Book of World Records in 2007 for the biggest gathering of Santas - 13,000 in the one place? Of course you didn’t. So join me and hundreds of contributors as we take a tour around the map of Britain to our favourite places, from the biggest city to the smallest village – with not a crap town among them. And when we get there, raise a glass to their achievements – whether they are humble, hilarious, genuinely impressive or downright weird ... Cheers!
