Please read Chapters 7 & 9 in the textbook.
Within Chapter 7, Francis Gavin brilliantly articulates an analogy between the expansion of cyberspace and the growth of the railroads in the early 20th century.
He opens his discussion, “The role of new technologies, especially the massive expansion of rail lines throughout Europe and their ability to move huge numbers of men and weapons more quickly to the battlefield, is often seen as a key element of how the July 1914 Crisis began and played itself out in a catastrophic world war. Can we generate insights from this history into how emerging cyber capabilities might affect great power crises in the future? What, if anything, can the story of railroads and their effect on international stability tell us about cybers influence on crisis stability today, and looking into the future”
In your discussion post, I want you to answer those specific questions. In no more than 750 words, please discuss those critical questions, and the analogy he unpacks in the chapter
