[edit] Ciberterrorismo (Cyber Terrorism)[6]

This book was one of the first white papers published on the topic of Cyberterrorism, a new weapon in the arsenal of global terrorists to be used for waging asymmetrical warfare. It was also one of the first resources available and used in works consulted and bibliographies in subsequent papers written about this new method of committing acts of terrorism through cyberspace (the internet) which we now know as cyberterrorism.[7] [8] [9][10]

“Ciberterrorismo/Infowars” based on over 13 public conferences held in both Venezuela and the U.S. (Barnes and Noble), at the time of its publication in Venezuela, was one out of only a handful of books worldwide, alerting the public, corporations, and state institutions and agencies about this new trend and dimension of war: the cyberspace (traditional air, ground, water). In principle the Cyber Terrorism is the continuation of terrorism by a new means and ways: cyberspace, networks, computers and Internet. This book "The Fight Againt Cyber Terrorism, Infowars & Cyberspace", is being translated into English | Second Edition 2008 | Updated and Revised by Hedi Enghelberg and Gail Tenzer. Cyberterrorism has emerged as the latest and most important threat to national security, so much so, that the U.S. Airforce has created an entire division to address the problem.

[edit] The-H-Clone

Like Enghelberg's aforementioned books, deals with current events and issues of the day. Although the book is a fiction-based-on fact novel, the subject matter is fast becoming one of the most controversial issues of the day, human cloning.

Beginning and set in the last days of World War II and the Battle of Berlin, readers are introduced to cloning and a brief explanation of how it is performed. The setting is Hitler's bunker and Enghelberg postulates that Hitler's and Bormann's samples of hair, nails, skin and sperm were taken, preserved in cryo-containers and smuggled out of Berlin to Argentina right after Hitler supposedly committed suicide and was buried in the terrace of the Foreign Ministry building.

The story takes readers from Germany to London where Mossad agents are sent for the containers, board the Israeli submarine Dakar, which mysteriously sinks right off the coast of Haifa's port. Most personages, places and events throughout the book are factual and historical. Only a few characters such as Hanna, the Mossad agent sent to find and recover the Hitler's genetic material are fictitious. Readers are taken from Tel Aviv to Moscow and Argentina in this science-based spy thriller, but more importantly, they are introduced to the science of cloning and what it implies now and in the future.

The book is currently being revised and translated and will continually be updated as the technology of cloning progresses and as society adopts whatever changes it deems desirable or necessary in response to the moral and ethical questions and issues presented by the ability of cloning life. The book is in the process of being revised and translated into English and will be published in 2008. ISBN 978-1-60585-125-9.
