Summary of “These Truths” Jill Lepore

Throughout the semester, weve been reading Jill Lepores These Truths: A History of the United States. Her book, and most works written by historians are what historians refer to as secondary sources. When a historian reads a secondary source, it is her or his responsibility to critique the source as objectively as possible. To start, one asks the following questions: What is the thesis of Lepores book? What is her argument? What story is she attempting to tell? These related questions are important because they tell us what questions Lepore, herself, is asking and what questions she is attempting to answer.
Once one figures out the answers to the questions above, it is important to critique the primary and secondary sources she uses as evidence to support her thesis, broader argument, and historical narrative. To discover these, one has to look through the notes. What kind of primary sources does she use? Newspapers? Speeches? Letters? Diaries? Government documents? Trial transcript

Cyber Attack Scenario Memorandum

A recent cyber attack occurred where a botnet type attack targeted a major US defense firm. No physical damage occurred to the firms network, but significant technological secrets about a new surveillance and targeting system from the firm, Defense Applications International (DAI), appear to have been compromised. Incidental, but nonetheless as a result of the attack, the virus also infected a software program that DAI was testing at electrical plant in Pennsylvania. The plant had to be shut down for 12 hours while repairs were made. The NSA believes it has credible evidence that the attack had a direct connection to the elite cyber unit Department 2112, of the country of Redistan, an adversary of the United States, although the attack itself appears to include private citizens of Redistan. The attack, however, was routed through several third countries including Bluelandia, an ally of the United States.
