In the height of the Cold War, a Berkeley astronomer, who moves into his lab’s computer department, pursues the source of a billing discrepancy and finds a Soviet–backed computer hacker on the other end. Cliff Stoll’s gripping autobiographical account of his quest to catch this digital interloper is no dry technical description—it is a deeply personal tale of a self–described leftist "hippie" rubbing shoulders with the Reagan–era military, and finding himself amazed at the common ground that he shares with them. Stoll’s struggles with ethical issues, privacy, and the relationship between trust and community are transparent in this readable non–fiction classic.
