Book Description The Macmillan Company, 1968. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Dust Jacket. "Codebreaking is the most important form of secret intelligence in the world today," says David Kahn and in The Codebreakers he relates its story fully and accurately for the first time. Mr. Kahn takes the reader behind the closed doors of history's "black chambers" and describes their workings. He tells how the secret activities of cryptanalysts have often determined the outcome of battles and diplomatic coups. He recounts the impact of the events that have molded modern cryptology, portrays the outstanding personalities of the science, and outlines the techniques - some electronic - used to break the most advanced machine ciphers. His story stretches from the proto-cryptography of Khnumhotep II to the speculations of scientists on how to solve messages from outer space. But the best part of the book consists of its innumberable stories about codes and ciphers. Seller Inventory # ABE-1531851581031

Book Description The Macmillan Company, 1968. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. 4th Printing. 4th printing. Lacks jacket. Sticker remnant on rear endpaper. 1968 Hard Cover. We have more books available by this author! xvi, [2], 1164 pp. 8vo. "Man has created codes to keep secrets and has broken codes to learn those secrets since the time of the Pharaohs. For 4,000 years, fierce battles have been waged between codemakers and codebreakers, and the story of these battles is civilization's secret history, the hidden account of how wars were won and lost, diplomatic intrigues foiled, business secrets stolen, governments ruined, computers hacked. From the XYZ Affair to the Dreyfus Affair, from the Gallic War to the Persian Gulf, from Druidic runes and the kaballah to outer space, from the Zimmermann telegram to Enigma to the Manhattan Project, codebreaking has shaped the course of human events to an extent beyond any easy reckoning. Once a government monopoly, cryptology today touches everybody. It secures the Internet, keeps e-mail private, maintains the integrity of cash machine transactions, and scrambles TV signals on unpaid-for channels. David Kahn's. Seller Inventory # 2267117
