Example text

On Computable Numbers’ is thirty-six pages long and aimed to answer a theoretical question. Much of it is filled with dense mathematical symbols and equations. And yet within it are ideas whose clarity and importance stand out even to the modern, lay reader. The term ‘computer’ was not new: previously it had applied to people. They might be performing some calculation, such as Kathleen Lewis working on the correct trajectory to launch an artillery shell to hit a moving target. Or carrying out a repetitive action, a bit like the hundreds of poor examiners who sat opening and reading messages in the First World War.

My aspiration is rather to ensure that the history of spying and the history of technology are portrayed in conjunction with each other and also with events in the outside world. Spying has always been controversial, raising complicated ethical questions. This is not a book that sets out to tell people what to think. It is a work of history that aims to explain how we got where we are so that people can be informed enough to make up their own minds. We are facing a future in which everything is connected to the internet, in which the physical and virtual increasingly merge.

As computers and communications merge, Washington fears that China will be able to do what Britain did in the First World War – hit a kill switch and spy through control of the infrastructure. Military intelligence once meant sending people undercover to make maps of far-off lands or, in the run-up to the First World War, to creep round German dockyards seeking out details of the latest battleship under construction. Later in the twentieth century it meant using satellites and intercepts to do much the same thing, but in the twenty-first century it involves mapping out the computer networks that run another country’s power supplies ready for war, or stealing the latest designs of a stealth fighter so that vulnerabilities can be identified and perhaps even implanted.
