Using information from the fields of science, economics and the arts, this text discusses the strategies behind data-aided wars from the Gulf Conflict to the cyber-guerilla. With the "success" of the Gulf Conflict acting as a stimulus, "information warfare" is fast developing. Ranging from computer-aided war, and the increase in the destructive potential of military operations through the use of information technology, virtual reality and high-tech weaponry, military strategists are increasingly turning their attention to "cyberwar", with its ultimate objective - the global information infrastructure itself: the destruction of computer and communication systems, the elimination of the data banks and the destruction of the enemy command and control systems. The contributors do not focus on what is technically imaginable, but on the different fronts in society that are in the process of undergoing the change.
