Description

People love secrets. Ever since the first word was written, humans have sent coded messages to

each other. In The Code Book, Simon Singh, author of the bestselling Fermat's Enigma, offers a

peek into the world of cryptography and codes, from ancient texts through computer encryption.

Singh's compelling history is woven through with stories of how codes and ciphers have played a

vital role in warfare, politics, and royal intrigue. The major theme of The Code Book is what Singh

calls 'the ongoing evolutionary battle between codemakers and codebreakers,' never more clear

than in the chapters devoted to World War II. Cryptography came of age during that conflict, as

secret communications became critical to both sides' success. Confronted with the prospect of

defeat, the Allied cryptanalysts had worked night and day to penetrate German ciphers. It would

appear that fear was the main driving force, and that adversity is one of the foundations of

successful codebreaking. In the information age, the fear that drives cryptographic improvements

is both capitalistic and libertarian--corporations need encryption to ensure that their secrets don't

fall into the hands of competitors and regulators, and ordinary people need encryption to keep their

everyday communications private in a free society. Similarly, the battles for greater decryption

power come from said competitors and governments wary of insurrection. The Code Book is an

excellent primer for those wishing to understand how the human need for privacy has manifested

itself through cryptography. Singh's accessible style and clear explanations of complex algorithms

cut through the arcane mathematical details without oversimplifying. --Therese Littleton Read more

'It would be hard to imagine a clearer or more fascinating presentation. . . . Mr. Singh gives

cryptography not only its historical dimension but its human one.' --The New York

Times'Entertaining and satisfying. . . . Offers a fascinating glimpse into the mostly secret

competition between codemakers and codebreakers.'        --USA Today  'A good

read that, bless it, makes the reader feel a bit smarter when it's done. Singh's an elegant writer

and well-suited to the task of leading the mathematically perplexed through areas designed to be

tricky.'        --Seattle Weekly  'An absorbing tale of codemaking and codebreaking

over the centuries.' --Scientific American'Singh spins tales of cryptic intrigue in every chapter.' --

The Wall Street Journal'Brings together...the geniuses who have secured communications, saved

lives, and influenced the fate of nations. A pleasure to read.' --Chicago

Tribune'Enthralling...commendably lucid...[Singh's] book provides a timely and entertaining

summary of the subject.' --The Economist Read more See all Editorial Reviews
