1. Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power by David E. Sanger

This 2012 title from the New York Times's chief Washington correspondent David E. Sanger examines America's role using a sophisticated arsenal of cyber weapons to attack Iran's nuclear program, in what one advisor called "a state of low-grade, daily conflict." Sanger's book also looks at the origins of the malicious computer worm, Stuxnet, and Operation Olympic Games.
