Review: I'm an aerospace engineer and pilot, and wanted to get a better idea on the non-technical side of drones. Drone Theory was an excellent choice. If you're interested in the philosophical and political implications of drone warfare (or anything in my summary of the ToC), this book is an excellent background guide. Chamayou provides clear arguments against the current use of drones by the US military. His writing style makes it easy to understand the complex system described without watering down his case. Summarized table of contents: Techniques and Tactics- Evolution of warfare and how drones became the weapon of choice Ethos and Psyche- Goes into great detail on military ethos Necroethics- Combatant immunity and picks apart argument on why drones are considered "humanitarian weapons" Principles of the Philosophy of the Right to Kill- Michael Walzer, jus ad bellum, François Laurent, Strawser, and legal framework of drone operations all covered in this brief but thorough section Political Bodies- haven't finished reading yet. will update upon completion

Review: We read this in our Reading Group. It was generally felt to be quite repetitive and written in a rather pompous style. Much of the content was interesting but really centred on 'are drone operators soldiers or assassins?' It covered the many historical and psychological ramifications stemming from this question. 2 out of 9 members really liked it and would recommend it to others. I would not, mainly because of the style and repetition.

  • Waterstones Drone Warfare

    Price: £16.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Drone Warfare is the first comprehensive analysis of one of the fastest growing-and most secretive-fronts in global conflict: the rise of robot warfare. In 2000, the Pentagon had fewer than fifty aerial drones; ten years later, it had a fleet of nearly 7,500, and the US Air Force now trains more drone pilots than bomber and fighter pilots combined. Drones are already a $5 billion business in the US alone. The human cost? Drone strikes have killed more than 200 children alone in Pakistan and Yemen. CODEPINK and Global Exchange cofounder Medea Benjamin provides the first extensive analysis of who is producing the drones, where they are being used, who controls these unmanned planes, and what are the legal and moral implications of their use. In vivid, readable style, this book also looks at what activists, lawyers, and scientists across the globe are doing to ground these weapons. Benjamin argues that the assassinations we are carrying out from the air will come back to haunt us when others start doing the same thing-to us.

  • Waterstones Drone Wars

    Price: £22.00

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Drones are transforming warfare through the use of artificial intelligence, drone swarms, and surveillance | ??leading to competition between the US, China, Israel, and Iran. Who will be the next drone superpower? In the battle for the streets of Mosul in Iraq, drones in the hands of ISIS terrorists made life hell for the Iraq army and civilians. Today, defense companies are racing to develop the lasers, microwave weapons, and technology necessary for confronting the next drone threat. Seth J. Frantzman takes the reader from the midnight exercises with Israel's elite drone warriors, to the CIA headquarters where new drone technology was once adopted in the 1990s to hunt Osama bin Laden. This rapidly expanding technology could be used to target nuclear power plants and pose a threat to civilian airports. In the Middle East, the US used a drone to kill Iranian arch-terrorist Qasem Soleimani, a key Iranian commander. Drones are transforming the battlefield from Syria to Libya and Yemen. For militaries and security agencies | ??the main users of expensive drones | ??the UAV market is expanding as well; there were more than 20,000 military drones in use by 2020. Once the province of only a few militaries, drones now being built in Turkey, China, Russia, and smaller countries like Taiwan may be joining the military drone market. It's big business, too | ??$100 billion will be spent over the next decade on drones. Militaries may soon be spending more on drones than tanks, much as navies transitioned away from giant vulnerable battleships to more agile ships. The future wars will be fought with drones and won by whoever has the most sophisticated technology. Waterstones Drone Wars - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
