Product description

In "Wired for War", P.W. Singer explores the greatest revolution in military affairs since the atom bomb: the dawn of robotic warfare. We are on the cusp of a massive shift in military technology that threatens to make real the stuff of "I, Robot" and "The Terminator". Blending historical evidence with interviews of an amazing cast of characters, Singer shows how technology is changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and the ethics that surround war itself. Travelling from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan to modern-day 'skunk works' in the midst of suburbia, "Wired for War" will tantalise a wide readership, from military buffs to policy wonks to gearheads.
