written by Adam Shostack

Wiley

ISBN 978-1-11989-516-9

$ 25.00

solicitation copy:

Software security has been vexing developers for more than 50 years and the problems developers face grow every day. A typical car today contains systems with 100 million lines of code that have been worked on by thousands of programmers at dozens of suppliers. While every line of code and every type of access can’t be locked down, there are basic models that developers can follow.

These models – such as STRIDE – can seem academic, formal, and hard to understand or apply to day to day problems. But, each element of STRIDE – spoofing, tampering, repudiation, information disclosure, denial of service, and expansion of authority – has surprising parallels to situations every developer will recognize from their favorite galactic space opera of all time.

Adm Shostack’s Threats: What Every Engineer Should Learn from Star Wars mixes Adam’s decades of deep knowledge of implementing processes to minimize threats and teaching others to do the same with just enough references to Ben Kenobi, R2 D2, the Death Star, and Darth Vader to make this short book an immensely fun and useful read.

from the announcement:

Securing software from attacks can feel overwhelming.
But software engineers are our only hope.

The Force will guide you… with a little help from your favorite droids and Jedi Knights.

How does R2-D2 know who Obi-Wan Kenobi is?

How does he decide to play the recording of Princess Leia for Obi-Wan, but not Luke?Threats: What Every Engineer Should Learn From Star Wars provides a fun and jargon-free introduction to this crucial cybersecurity knowledge. The Star Wars franchise offers an accessible set of examples of real world cyber threats. For over a decade, Adam Shostack, author of the highly regarded and successful Threat Modeling: Designing for Security, has been using lessons from Star Wars to teach about security. Threats: What Every Engineer Should Learn From Star Wars carries those themes to the audience of software developers.

The brain is an amazing analogy machine which is why fictional examples provide the perfect learning tool for complex, abstract concepts. Just like there are timeless tropes in fiction, there are broad, timeless categories of threats.

Using technical examples taken from Star Wars, Adam teaches readers how to apply their life experiences to the technical systems that they build so they can find security problems. Using accessible threat categories, readers learn to filter vast amounts of security information into smaller, more manageable pieces.

In this book, you’ll learn:

  • Which timeless threats keep raising their ugly heads
  • The concrete details and true stories of where those threats have emerged (struck? manifested?)
  • A framework for organizing the complex, sprawling world of security threats

We are so excited about this book that we couldn’t let another Star Wars Day go by without sharing the news that Wiley will be publishing the book this fall. (Wiley not only published Threat Modeling, but Wiley-Blackwell has a line of books like The Ultimate Star Wars and Philosophy…)

solicitation copy:

A Galaxy of Things explores the ways in which all puppets, masks, and makeup-prosthetic figures are “material characters,” and uses Star Wars creatures, droids, and helmeted-characters to illustrate what makes the good ones not only compelling, but meaningful.

The book begins with author Colette Searls’ Star Wars thing aesthetic, described through a release-order overview of what creatures, droids and masked characters have brought to 45+ years of live-action Star Wars. Building on theories from the burgeoning field of puppetry and material performance, it sees these “material characters” as a group and describes three specific powers that they share – distance, distillation, and duality – using the ubiquitously recognizable Star Wars characters to illustrate them. The book describes Distance, Distillation, and Duality as material character powers, using characters like C-3PO and Jabba the Hutt to illustrate how all three work to generate meaning. An in-depth exploration of the original Empire Strikes Back Yoda and “Baby” Yoda (Grogu) reveals how these two puppets use those powers to transform their human companions: Luke Skywalker, and then Din Djarin. Searls provides an in-depth analysis of Darth Vader’s mask trajectory across three trilogies (1977 – 2019), revealing its contribution as a “performing thing.” Finally, the book presents problematic uses of material character powers by critiquing droids in service, and the historical use of racial stereotypes in characters like Jar Jar Binks, before offering a hopeful analysis of how early 2020s live-action Star Wars began centering the non-, semi-, and concealed human in redemptive ways.

This is an accessible exploration for students and scholars of theatre, film, media studies and popular culture who want to better understand puppets, masks, and makeup-prosthetic characters. Its terms and concepts will be useful to scholarly explorations of non-, semi-, and concealed human portrayals for a range of other fields, including posthumanism, object-oriented ontology, ethnic studies, and material culture.

Table of Contents:
1.  The Things in the Galaxy
2. Distance, Distillation, and Duality
3. Powerful, Puppetry is: How two Yodas make meaning
4. I Find Your Lack of Face Disturbing: The mask performance of Darth Vader (and friends)

STAR WARS AFTER LUCAS
A Critical Guide to the Future of the Galaxy

softcover reprint of the April 9, 2019 hardcover (USA)

written by Dan Golding
University of Minnesota Press

hardcover (264 pages)

ISBN 978-1517905415

$ 20.00

solicitation copy:

Politics, craft, and cultural nostalgia in the remaking of Star Wars for a new age

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away—way back in the twenty-first century’s first decade—Star Wars seemed finished. Then in 2012 George Lucas shocked the entertainment world by selling the franchise, along with Lucasfilm, to Disney. This is the story of how, over the next five years, Star Wars went from near-certain extinction to what Wired magazine would call “the forever franchise,” with more films in the works than its first four decades had produced.

Focusing on The Force Awakens (2015), Rogue One (2016), The Last Jedi (2017), and the television series Rebels (2014–18), Dan Golding explores the significance of pop culture nostalgia in overcoming the skepticism, if not downright hostility, that greeted the Star Wars relaunch. At the same time he shows how Disney, even as it tapped a backward-looking obsession, was nonetheless creating genuinely new and contemporary entries in the Star Wars universe.

A host of cultural factors and forces propelled the Disney-engineered Star Wars renaissance, and all figure in Golding’s deeply informed analysis: from John Williams’s music in The Force Awakens to Peter Cushing’s CGI face in Rogue One, to Carrie Fisher’s passing, to the rapidly changing audience demographic. Star Wars after Lucas delves into the various responses and political uses of the new Star Wars in a wider context, as in reaction videos on YouTube and hate-filled, misogynistic online rants. In its granular textual readings, broad cultural scope, and insights into the complexities of the multimedia galaxy, this book is as entertaining as it is enlightening, an apt reflection of the enduring power of the Star Wars franchise.
