Book News Annotation:

Levy, a Newsweek writer, author of Hackers, and crack storyteller, relates the 30-year history of the "crypto rebels" whose work made it possible for encryption technology to oil the workings of the digital age instead of being buried in secret government files. Levy interviewed hundreds of cryptographers, hackers, and government officials as background; the story he tells is one of nerds, academics, and policy wonks prevailing over spies, generals, and presidents.
